Eddie Redmayne, star of LES MISERABLES, stopped by the 'Today' show on NBC this morning to chat about the audition process for his role in the film. The actor shared that he has been obsessed with 'Les Mis' since he was 7 or 8 years old. Host Matt Lauer asked the Tony award winner if he really had to audition for the role of 'Marius'. "Don't you have to just walk in with the Tony and say, 'Me and my little friend here don't think I need to audition.' " Replied the actor, "In my dreams. If only it were that easy!" Check out the appearance below!

Les Misérables is the motion-picture adaptation of the beloved global stage sensation seen by more than 60 million people in 42 countries and in 21 languages around the globe and still breaking box-office records everywhere in its 27th year. Helmed by The King's Speech's Academy Award-winning director, Tom Hooper, the Working Title/Cameron Mackintosh production stars Hugh Jackman, Oscar winner Russell Crowe, Anne Hathaway, Amanda Seyfried, Eddie Redmayne, Aaron Tveit, Samantha Barks, with Helena Bonham Carter and Sacha Baron Cohen. The film opens Christmas Day in theaters across the U.S. 

Set against the backdrop of 19th-century France, Les Misérables tells an enthralling story of broken dreams and unrequited love, passion, sacrifice and redemption—a timeless testament to the survival of the human spirit. Jackman plays ex-prisoner Jean Valjean, hunted for decades by the ruthless policeman Javert (Crowe) after he breaks parole. When Valjean agrees to care for factory worker Fantine's (Hathaway) young daughter, Cosette, their lives change forever.
