Hugh Jackman as Jean Valjean, Russell Crowe as Javert, Amanda Seyfried as Cosette, Eddie Redmayne as Marius, Anne Hathaway as Fantine and, wait for the best casting ever, Sasha Baron Cohen as Thénardier. All directed by Tom Hooper, director of The King’s Speech.
OK, I’m interested.
While Anne Hathaway doesn’t have a Broadway powered voice, it’s not terrible. Plus, Jackman is a tried performer and Crowe has the look of Javert. And can’t you just see SBC singing “Master of the House”?
Sasha Baron Cohen as Thénardier! but I am worried about Anne Hathaway – not the biggest fan
Luckily her character is gone before the end of Act I 🙂
