VIDEO: Hugh Jackman Chats LES MIS, Gangnam Style on 'Jay Leno'
LES MISERABLES star Hugh Jackman stopped by NBC's 'Tonight Show With Jay Leno' last night to chat about the upcoming film opening Christmas Day. "The music is so incredible, the characters are so great. It's very epic and sweeping," shared the actor. "They waited twenty seven years to make it and I'm really grateful. I think an 18-year-old Jean Valjean really wouldn't have cut it!" Check out clips from last night's appearance below!
LES MISERABLES 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.
Set against the backdrop of 19th-century France, LES MISERABLES 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.
