A new film still featuring two Jean Valjeans has been released! Hugh Jackman – in costume as Valjean in Tom Hooper’s upcoming adaptation of the musical – is posed alongside Colm Wilkinson, who originated the role of Valjean on both the West End and Broadway. In case you don’t remember, Colm will be playing the Bishop of Digne in Les Miserables; a beautiful full-circle for his Les Mis involvement, as the Bishop is the single catalyst that causes Jean Valjean to start his life over.
As a side-note: Hugh sang “Bring Him Home” for the film today, May 15th, according to a multitude of tweets (namely, from actors playing Les Amis de l’ABC). It was reported that he sang for two hours!
