Misérable vets in for film ver­sion

The Irish Times - Friday - The Ticket - - News -

Our own Colm Wilkinson, who cre­ated the role of Jean Val­jean in the orig­i­nal RSC pro­duc­tion of Les Misérables, has been in­vited to take a role in Tom Hooper’s up­com­ing film of the smash mu­si­cal. Wilkinson will play the Bishop from whom the hero fate­fully steals a pair of can­dle­sticks. Frances Rufelle, who orig­i­nally played Epo­nine, will also play a small role.

Hooper’s fol­low-up to The King’s Speech al­ready boasts an im­pres­sive cast list. Hugh Jack­man, Rus­sell Crowe, Anne Hath­away, Sacha Baron Co­hen and Amanda Seyfried will all be war­bling their way through the year of rev­o­lu­tion.
