Teaming up for a fourth time, Ewan McGregor and Stanley Tucci are attached to play a talking candelabra and a living grand piano in what is, sadly, not a new, all-ages Liberace biopic.

THR reports that McGregor has joined Disney's live-action Beauty and the Beast in the role of Lumiere, the transformed maître d' originally played by Jerry Orbach. So ends the argument of whether or not Ewan McGregor is the new Jerry Orbach. He is. Give him a Law & Order spin-off immediately.

Meanwhile, Variety brings word that Tucci has signed on to the film in a new role. He'll reportedly play Cadenza, a neurotic maestro that has been turned into a grand piano. Finally, a character for everyone that could buy that a mansion of people have turned into objects but just couldn't grasp that the musical numbers lacked visible accompaniment.
