Next Colm Wilkinson
I'd take the role of Eponine over Cosette's any day! Why is there no mention of Eddie Redmayne as Marius? His voice is quite beautiful.
I think the film is an ok rendering of the play. It's the people on youtube who say that Anne Hathaway's performance is much more heartfelt and vocally superior to Lea Salonga's that pisses me off, truly.
What?!? No young, Broadway obsessed girl longs to play Cosette. They all long to play Eponine. There is no "juiciness" to this role. That said, Amanda Seyfried played it sweetly and fine.
