Lea Michele, Scarlett Johansson, Taylor Swift & Evan Rachel Wood on LES MISERABLES shortlist

Tom Hooper is hard at work on his adaptation of Les Miserables, and is close to finding the perfect actress for the coveted role of Eponine. According to the NY Post, Taylor Swift, Lea Michele, Scarlett Johansson and Evan Rachel Wood are on the shortlist for the film. They have already auditioned for the role. It is reported that Glee’s Michele “knocked it out of the park” when she auditioned for the role. Michele played Young Cosette in the Broadway show.

According to the Post:
“Scarlett brings acting ability, and she can reallysing,” said the source. “Evan Rachel Wood brings her indie cred.” And casting Swift would mark a major move over to Hollywood films for the pop star.
Hugh Jackman, Russell Crowe, Anne Hathaway, Eddie Redmayne and Geoffrey Rush are all set to star in the film from Universal and Working Title. I am not a huge fan of musicals, but this cast is really good. I would like to see Johansson in the role personally, what about you?
