Re: "King's Speech" director to take on "Les Miserables"
Sorry to resurrect this thread (Well it is 9 days to Easter so maybe it is a good time.) but I was listening to John Barrowman on Youtube, and I thought he is funny (I love his Captain Jack) and thought he could be a good Thénardier. Granted, he is too pretty for the part, as it is generally portrayed, but I think he could do it. Hugh as Valjean, Lea Michele as Éponine, Anne Hathaway as Cossette and the rest of the cast rounded out by Broadway/West End vets.
Did I happen to mention, did I bother to disclose, this man we're seeking with a mole on his nose, I'm not sure of his clothes or anything else, except he's Chinese. A big clue by itself.
