La La Land is a perfect movie, and Emma Stone and Ryan Gosling are perfect in it (want receipts? See: the Golden Globes). That said, the film could have been very, very different—in that director Damien Chazelle almost cast Emma Watson and Miles Teller as the leads.

La La Land requires its leads to carry a pretty solid tune, and Emma Watson obviously would have done an *amazing* job (she sounds A+ in the trailers for Beauty and the Beast). That said, we can't imagine 2016's best film with anyone else than Stone and Gosling. Match made in movie heaven, etc, etc.
