Per THR, Johansson will play “Kurt” father to Tori (Amber Skye Noyes), and will be introduced in the sixth episode.
Kurt is described as an arrogant and powerful Manhattan business mogul whose career has had a meteoric rise within the last few years. He’s become increasingly paranoid as a result of his career ascent, surrounding himself with armed bodyguards and keeping a close eye on his daughter.
As learned earlier, “Tori” is the innocent daughter of a powerful beast. She is rescued by Cat (Kristin Kreuk) and Vincent (Jay Ryan) and then taken under their wing.
Beauty and the Beast premieres Oct. 7 on The CW.
