TV’s new Beauty and the Beast stars Kreuk as Catherine Chandler, a New York City police detective who in the course of investigating a murder discovers Vincent Keller (Ryan, one of TVLine’s Fresh Faces for Fall), a onetime doctor who was reportedly killed while serving in Afghanistan but in truth is the living result of a military experiment gone awry, one which leaves him to turn into a feral man-beast when enraged.
