VIDEO: Watch 'House of Lies' Don Cheadle & Josh Lawson Sing LES MIS Parody
After seeing the film "Les Miserables," Showtime producers thought it would be funny for "House of Lies" stars Don Cheadle and Josh Lawson to sing lines Les-Mis style from the hit show and asked Sandblast Productions to add a musical score to the actors' unique a cappella version. The result was comic genius - a minute-long parody, nicknamed "Les Mais," which Showtime aired the same weekend as this year's Academy Awards.

"Everyone has access to the same gear," says Sandblast founding member Loren Toolajian. "Technology has evened the playing field.
