Chris Egan has signed up for a role in ABC's drama pilot Beauty and the Beast.

The project, a reimagining of the classic fairytale, focuses on a princess called Grace who forms a bond with a mysterious beast.

Egan has now signed up to play Grace's fiancé, Deadline says.

His character Gorrick is Grace's father's "most trusted" soldier.

Egan previously starred on the Australian soap Home & Away and appeared in Kings. He was attached to the ABC pilot Poe last season but the project did not get picked up to series.

Beauty and the Beast, which is being penned by Jon Steinberg, should not be confused with The CW's pilot of the same name.

The CW project, which is based loosely on a 1980s drama, recently cast Smallville's Kristin Kreuk and Life Unexpected actor Austin Basis.
