Hugh Jackman Could Be Jean Valjean In 'Les Miz' Movie Musical

Back in March we let you know about Tom Hooper looking to bring the hit musical Les Miserables to the screen.  Today The Hollywood Reporter noted that Hugh Jackman is currently in talks to play the lead role of Jean Valjean.

Jackman is a great casting choice for this movie.  The next question would be who to play his pursuer Jarvert.  It needs to be someone that could be intimidating and have a strong baritone voice.  My vote is for Jesse L. Martin (Law & Order, original RENT cast).  

What say you?

  1. I think I would have liked to see Hollywood tackle the film version of Miss Saigon...and I thought that project was further along in development.
