Rehearsals for ‘Les Mis’ Begin

Les Miserables rehearsals have finally begun! Not only that, but exciting new information about the project has also come to light. According to Hugh Jackman’s official Twitter, the new song written for the film will indeed be for Jean Valjean! No word yet if it’ll be a solo performance, a duet, or perhaps something involving multiple characters. Remember: when a new song is created and is aired within the duration of the film (or is the first song during credits), it’s eligible for an Academy Award.
