    Either find a new cast, or cancel the movie.
    Lea Michele should be Eponine, and the chick who played Johanna in Sweeney Todd should play Cosette. If they do cast Taylor as Eponine, I’ll kill myself.

    Les Miserables is the best, most beautiful musical ever written…I’ve seen it live twice, once on Broadway and once on tour and have tickets to see it again in it’s anniverary tour next month. I think the film cast is WONDERFUL, For those who don’t know, Amanda Seyfried has a wonderful voice, as seen in Mamma Mia!, and Russell Crowe has fronted his own band for years, long before he was a star. Anne Hathaway has a lovey voice and, well, what can you say about the fabulous Hugh Jackman as Valjean? BUT, I was REALLY disappointed to hear that Talor Swift is playing my favorite Broadway musical character of all time and singing my very favorite song, “On My Own”!!! Lea Michele would own that role!!! She sang it on the very first episode of GLEE to audition for the glee cllub, Taylor is a sweet young woman with a suitable country voice, but she if NOT Eponine material in any respect!

    I hate reading all the comments about how Taylor Swift can’t act or isn’t good enough to have this part, because she hasn”t even been given the chance to act in a movie like this. Can all of you guys act?
