Just read this intriguing Grantland piece about the Les Miserables movie of the London and Broadway musical that is to be released in December. It stars Hugh Jackman as Jean Valjean, Russell Crowe as Javert, and Anne Hathaway as Fantine. It is directed by Tom Hooper who won the Best Director Oscar for The King's Speech. Although Jackman appears to be the only honest to goodness Broadway musical theater guy in the cast, Sasha Baron Cohen proved he can sing in Tim Burton's Sweeney Todd. Baron Cohen plays the sleazy innkeeper, Thénardier (Master of the House). Be sure to watch the trailer attached to the Grantland piece, you'll be glad you did. Although Anne Hathaway doesn't have a big voice, I thought her performance and Hooper's production of I Dreamed a Dream were wonderful. I am really looking forward to this film.
