Including Gavroche.

>>Bertie Carvel, one of our best stage actors who all but steals the musical Matilda, has a tasty part as Bamatabois, the snarky dandy who attacks Fantine and then claims she assaulted him.

Carvel will get to push snow down the front of Anne Hathaway’s dress.

Daniel Evans, the two-time Olivier Award-winning actor - now director of Sheffield Theatres - is also in the cast, along with Adrian Scarborough

Several actors who have performed on stage in Les Miserables (past and present) have parts in the film.

They include Caroline Sheen, Hadley Fraser, Killian Donnelly, Mike Jibson, Linzi Hateley, Gemma Wardle, Katy Secombe, Gina Beck, Fra Fee, Alexia Khadine and Katie Hall.

‘It’s what happened when they made the film version of Oliver!,’ Mackintosh told me.

‘Everyone who was in a West End musical auditioned for the film. It means you’ve got the cream of London in the film.’
Several of the actors have been rehearsing along- side Hugh Jackman and Russell Crowe.

Members of the student ensemble, such as Matt Corner and Jos Slovick, will be manning the barricades next to Eddie Redmayne and Aaron Tveit.

And as already revealed on this page, Colm Wilkinson and Frances Ruffelle - stars of the original production - have small, but significant roles, while a veteran (aged 12) has landed the coveted part of cheeky Parisian street lad Gavroche. Daniel Huttlestone, who began his career as a nipper with Rowan Atkinson in Oliver!, has already played Gavroche on stage.<<

Carvel is perfect for that role (albeit a fairly small one).

The rumors of Sacha Baren Cohen of playing Thenardier can be put to rest.

"The cast of the film musical "Les Misérables" will feature "Borat" star Sacha Baron Cohen as Thenardier, U.K. Oliver! actor Daniel Huttlestone as child-hero Gavroche, as well as Tony Award nominee Daniel Evans and London stars Hannah Waddingham, Hadley Fraser and more, Universal has confirmed."

I have been on a Les Mis high since yesterday. I think it's because it's coming back to Philly next year! And knowing that the movie is also being worked on is another contribution

The Pone had better have nabbed herself a cameo.
