So I found out last week that they are making a film version of the musical ‘Les Misérables’! I am so extremely excited about this! The cast is killer and I have no doubt that it will be phenomenal!
Amanda Seyfried (Mama Mia) as Cosette
Russell Crowe (ooooh! I just got chills! He is perfect!) as Inspector Javert
Anne Hathaway as Fantine
Hugh Jackman as Jean Valjean (Holy Cow!!! AMAZING!!!)
Helena Bonham Carter as Madame Thénardier (no introduction needed…!)
Sacha Baron Cohen as Monsieur Thénardier
Eddie Redmayne as Marius Pontmercy
Samantha Barks as Éponine
Aaron Tveit as Enjolras
Colm Wilkinson as Bishop of Digne (He played Jean Valjean on Broadway)
Bertie Carvel as Bamatabois
Daniel Huttlestone as Gavroche
George Blagden as Grantaire
Isabelle Allen as Young Cosette
Enough said. I have no doubt, with the caliber of these serious actors, that this film will do justice to Victor Hugo’s novel (which is one of the greatest novels of the 19th century) of “the wretched poor”.
