We know this type of film isn’t the usual type of thing that we cover on the site, but look at this cast! How could we not? Check out this listing of roles and you’ll really see what we mean.
Director: Tom Hooper – He’s the guy that did ‘The King’s Speech. As an added bonus… He isn’t Baz Lurhman!
Sacha Baron Cohen is Monsieur Thenardier.
Hugh Jackman is Jean Valjean.
Russell Crowe is Javert
Anne Hathaway is Fantine
Eddie Redmayne is Marius.
One big question now remains, who will play the role of Eponine?
Right now, the list is down to: Lea Michele, Taylor Swift, Scarlett Johansson, and Evan Rachel Wood. Our only hope is that the role goes to… anyone but Lea Michelle. It’ll be bad enough when we are all forced to sit through the Les Mis theme episode of Glee that is inevitable. No reason to ruin a whole movie with her as well.
