I know she’s only 29, but I don’t think I’ve ever seen a bad photo of Kristin Kreuk. The “Smallville” actress was seen doing some promotional work at Comic-Con yesterday with Jay Ryan, her co-star on The CW’s new show “Beauty and the Beast,” which will hit airwaves later this fall on Thursday, October 11 (after “Vampire Diaries”). Kristin’s last series lasted around ten years, so I’d say she’s a pretty good gamble when it comes to television. We wish her luck!

Here’s a trailer for the new series:

Kristen scored the lead role of Catherine Chandler & Jay Ryan will be Vincent Keller>. Read more about each character by hitting each link. Also, if you think you’re gonna follow the series, make sure you hit Cinema Blend’s great preview from a couple months ago.

Here’s some plot action:

Detective Catherine Chandler is an intelligent, take-no-prisoners homicide detective who works with her police partner, Tess. Many years ago, Catherine saw her mother being murdered by two gunmen…two gunmen who would have killed her as well, except for the fact that something stepped in and saved her life. Today, Catherine has grown into a competent and strong woman, but she still believes someone human saved her life, not an animal. While investigating a recent murder, a clue leads Catherine to Dr. Vincent Keller, a man who was apparently killed while serving in Afghanistan in 2002. Of course, it turns out that Vincent is actually alive, and he’s the same man who saved her life. But he’s been in hiding for the last 10 years because his condition leads him to turn into a beast when he becomes enraged. After meeting with him, Catherine makes a deal: she’ll keep his secret if he can help her with her mother’s murder. Their partnership continues to grow and, of course, the pair find themselves drawn to each other. [Source]
