Red Riding Hood star Amanda Seyfried has officially been offered the role of Cosette in Tom Hooper's (The Kings Speech) film adaptation of Les Miserables The Musical. Seyfried's character is the daughter of Fantine, who will be played by Anne Hathaway.
The story follows convict Jean Valjean, played by Hugh Jackman, who is on the run from his nemesis, Inspector Javert, played by Russell Crowe. According to a recent report Hooper wants the actors to sing their parts in the film, while shooting, without the use of voice doubles. You may not know this, but Seyfried is actually an opera trained actress so this should be a great opportunity for her. She was great in the musical film version of Mama Mia!, and I hope she actually ends up taking the role in this movie. What are your thoughts?
