A film version of Les Miserables is afoot and everyone wants in because it really is exactly the kind of overwrought, bust-heaving weariness that gets you an Oscar nomination. And the thesps are circling like vultures!
Scarlett Johansson, Taylor Swift and Lea Michele (the main girl from Glee) are all competing with each other so they can land the coveted role in the upcoming Les Mis movie.
If any brake cables get cut in some terrible ‘accident’, you’ll know exactly who to blame. Right? There’s already a superstar cast signed up for this film too.
Tom Hooper’s big screen adaptation has a cast including Hugh Jackman, Russell Crowe, Anne Hathaway, Geoffrey Rush and Helena Bonham Carter.
Helena Bonham Carter was always going to be on-board for this wasn’t she? We’re just waiting for Kenneth Branagh to get the nod and we’ll have a period-drama full-house!
However, all the rumours surround the lucky lass who will land the role of Eponine.
Apparently, Taylor Swift has already auditioned for the part. NO EXPERIENCE YOU SAY? You’ve obviously never seen the film Valentine’s Day! In that, Swift plays a one-legged smack-addict who enters the brutal world of snuff movies as she tries to raise money for her blind child’s lung operation.
Glee star Michele has also tried out, of course, having previous with Les Mis as she made her Broadway debut in the show in ’95.
Meanwhile, Scarlett Johansson wants us all to forget her boobies and take her seriously as an actress again JUST LIKE WE ALL USED TO TAKE HER REALLY SERIOUSLY, HONEST.
