I realize that there is only a small handful of you guys who are super, super excited about the film adaptation of the musical version of Les Miserables. I know that. And that’s ok. Musicals are not for everyone, and even if they were, musicals like Les Mis are certainly not for everyone. But they are and this is definitely for a few of us. And those few can rejoice, because we have the first photos taken from the set!
The photos feature Hugh Jackman as Jean Valjean, but there’s also one in there of Colm Wilkinson, the man who originated the role and who is making a cameo as the bishop. But check out Hugh’s beard and those scars on his head! I have to admit, I was a little worried that he’d be too pretty to really be believable as Valjean, but it looks like I was wrong. I never should have doubted you, Hugh!
You guys, I just … ugh. I’m way, way too excited for this. Did I tell you about how I’m going to go to the premiere in costume? Because I’m going to go to the premiere in costume. I’m just nerdy as hell like that, I thought you knew. Everything isn’t in place just yet, since we have until December, but I know that my boyfriend is going to have to take a sit down while we draw the 24601 on his chest. He’s never seen or heard Les Mis, he’s just a team player.
Is anyone else this pumped for the movie?
