I've just seen an updated casting list for the Les Mis movie and I'm so excited! But I wish I knew who was playing Marius and Enjolras. Anyone know?
The latest I've found out is as follows:
Jean Valjean: Hugh Jackman
Javert: Russell Crowe
Thenardier: Geoffrey Rush (I think this is great casting)
Madame T: Helena Bonham Carter (again, good casting!)
Eponine: Hayden Panetierre - I must admit I'm really not sure about this. Can she sing?
Fantine: Anne Hathaway - I think she could be pretty good.
Cosette: Emma Watson - hmm - can she sing? Cosette has a lot of really high notes!
Overall, I think it's looking great. And HJ tweeted that he's begun rehearsals so woot! Mind you, I can imagine that will be a HUGE amount of work - getting a long movie like this to look and sound great. I have every faith they'll bring it together, with this good a cast and the amount of money likely to be thrown at it though. And it does befit the finest stage musical ever. I just hope it can transition okay to the big screen.
