LES MISERABLES might not open in movie theatres for another five days, but that doesn't mean you have to wait any longer for another sneak peek. In the clip below, original Valjean, Colm Wilkinson, chats about taking on the role of the Bishop, working with Hugh Jackman, and more! Plus, hear from Hugh Jackman on what it was like to work with Colm, and to fit into the mold that he created for the iconic character.
Under the direction of Tom Hooper, the film will star Hugh Jackman as Jean Valjean, Anne Hathaway as Fantine, Russell Crowe as Javert, Sacha Baron Cohen as Thernardier, Eddie Redmayne as Marius, Aaron Tveit as Enjolras, Amanda Seyfried as Cosette, Samantha Barks as Eponine, and Helena Bonham Carter as Madame Thenardier.
Les Miserables originally opened in London at the Barbican Theatre on 8 October 1985, transferred to the Palace Theatre on 4 December 1985 and moved to its current home at the Queen's Theatre on 3 April 2004. When LES MISERABLES celebrated its 21st London birthday on 8 October 2006, it became the World's Longest Running Musical, surpassing the record previously held by "Cats" in London's West End. In January 2010, The West End production broke another record by celebrating its historic 10,000th performance.
