Hugh Jackman Talks Singing Live In Les Mis Movie & Turning Into Jean Valjean


After breaking records with his one man show on Broadway, Hugh Jackman is looking forward to his next project: the film version of the musical Les Miserable.

Now, if you ask anyone who loves themselves a Broadway musical, they will tell you that this is the movie everyone has been waiting for ever since the show went up at the Broadway Theatre in 1987. The big thrill in particular for this project is the cast being boasted for the key roles. Hugh especially has been cleverly chosen to star as the leas, Jean Valjean, and in a new interview, he explains some very interesting information about the movie, including the fact that the cast will be singing LIVE during filming, not miming a pre-recorded track.

Here are the HIGHlights from his interview:

Four Famous Ladies Fight For The Coveted Eponine Role In Les Misérables


So far, the casting for the new musical movie version of Les Misérables has been spot on. Hugh Jackman, Russell Crowe, Anne Hathaway, Eddie Redmayne and Geoffrey Rush are filling out the roster quite nicely, but there is one role still open that has everyone buzzing and as of right now, it sounds like four young ladies are in the lead for the coveted part.

Right now Taylor Swift, Lea Michele, Scarlett Johansson and Evan Rachel Wood are all in the running for role of Eponine, each bringing something different, yet equally desirable to the role. Like ScarJo. She "brings acting ability, and she can really sing," but Rachel "brings her indie cred" that Tom Hopper is such a big fan of. Obviously, casting Swifty would be a risky, but profitable move for all as her name will bring in an audience all it's own. However, Princess Lea - who played Young Cosette in the Broadway show and Eponine at the Hollywood Bowl show - reportedly "knocked it out of the park” during her audition and if you ask us, she's got the most to offer the production in skill and publicity.

But that's just our opinion. Who would U like to see in the role?
