If 2011-2012 was the season to differentiate Grimm from Once Upon a Time (or Pan Am and The Playboy Club), 2012-2013 could end up being the season that puts Beauty and the Beast up against Beauty and the Beast. And once again, ABC is involved.
So far we've seen the "real world" versions of character such as Snow White, Prince Charming, and Jiminy Cricket. When de Ravin's episode airs in February, she'll be playing the role of Belle from Beauty and the Beast. In the meantime, we've got a look at de Ravin in costume and sporting a very different look than the blonde tresses Lost fans remember.
For most folks, the words "Beauty and the Beast" conjures up memories of the beloved Disney film, full of gruff beasts, literature loving maidens, and singing furniture. Or maybe your associations roll back further, to memories of your parents or grandparents reading you fairy tales when you were a wee sprout. For some of us who grew up in the '80s and early '90s, however, "Beauty and the Beast" instead brings to mind memories of sewer dwellers and the lady from Terminator and Ron Perlman as a tender-hearted monster named Vincent.
