I think that Lea Michele deserve the role of Eponine. C’mom Taylor, serious ?

# 2

Taylor Swift has no depth to play Eponine, the girl can’t act and can’t belt. In fact, she can’t even sing her own songs. I had hopes in this movie although Anne Hathaway is in this and Russel Crowe is no Javert but are they seriously expecting this to be an Oscar contender with this casting? Plus, I love Amanda but she can’t open a movie. It’s obvious that they gave it to Taylor because they want the money from her fans. This is laughable.

Also, Tom Hooper is a moron. He’s not a good director and has just lost all credibility after the casting of Taylor Swift.

# 4

What? Taylor can’t act!!!!!!

# 5

I hope this movie flops so the joke that Tom Hooper is stops making movies. The King’s Speech was awful and the only great part was its cast.

# 6

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAH this is a joke right? Taylor Swift is gonna ruin this but this movie was dead from the start with Tom Hooper directing.

# 7

NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!

# 8

if she’s smart, she’s not going to take it. but she’s not sooooo

# 9

Why not?! Love them both… <3

I don’t know, I men I love Taylor Swift but come on…. over Lea Michele? As Eponine? You’ve got to be kidding me.

I love Taylor so much but c’mon.taylor can’t act.

@Taty: @mel: @Elle: @flor: @Ash: WHY COMPLAINING? Can you act? then if you think you can? call Hollywood now! so you will be Eponine. so the film will not be flop, and Yes I’m a Taylor Swift fan. :P

@wonderstruck to paulie: it shows, honey. And sadly, you have no idea what you’re stanning for.

What?? They don’t have the ass

Casting Taylor Swift over Lea Michele is just crazy. Swift can’t act, just look at what she’s been in, ugh.

TAYLOR SWIFT IS REALLY BAD AT ACTING.THEY CAST HER ONLY BECAUSE SHE HAS MILLIONS OF FANS.THAT S ALL.I HATE HER.

I HATE TAYLOR SWIFT,IS REALLY BAD.

I HATE TAYLOR SWIFT.I WANT TO DIE.

I HATE TAYLOR SWIFT.I WANT TO DIE.

taylor swift is way too happy-go-lucky to play eponine, definitely dont think she has the emotional depth or acting chops for the part

i can just imagine her death being overdramatic but ending with a smile on her face as she lies in marius’ arms

MARIUS YOU BELONG WITH MEEEE no taylor stop

I think Lea deserves it, I mean she’s done it before! that’s gotta count for something right? I like Taylor but i think is not her game.. Not her music.
And Amanda, I’m a HUGE fan, I really hope she takes it!

Sorry, but I find BOTH Amanda and Taylor annoying as hell. Swift can’t act, and only sings one twangy kind of song. Seyfried is just so overrated. Just so disappointed; definitely won’t be seeing this. They threw quality away for money. Disgusting.
