We've got a number for you, Hugh Jackman. It's 24601. That's how many reasons there are that he should take this role. Let's go through them. Reason number one … we kid, we kid. That'd just be silly of us!
But the truth of the matter is that Hugh is in talks to star in Tom Hooper's film adaptation of the musical Les Miserables as Jean Valjean. Personally, we can't think of anyone better suited for the role! Powerhouse voice, terribly handsome. The real problem is going to be finding someone to play opposite him as Inspector Javert!
Hmm. We're thinking … Ramin Karimloo?
Don't know him? LOOK HIM UP! (You're welcome!)
Anyone else U think would be good opposite of Hugh as Jean in Les Miz?
