Hugh Jackman and Russell Crowe confirmed for Les Mis

Producer Cameron Mackintosh has confirmed that Hugh Jackman and Russell Crowe will star in the film version of Les Miserables.  As you know, my love for Les Mis knows no bounds so I’m slightly worried.  I like Hugh Jackman and providing Crowe is a good singer he could make a wonderfully intense Javert, but the idea of celebrity casting trumping genuine musical talent is disturbing.  Still – Working Title, Cameron Mackintosh and director Tom Hooper have a decent record, it could be all right.  We’ll find out in December 2012.
