Taylor Swift & Amanda Seyfried Joining Cast of Les Miserables

Now, I don't know when this started happening, but this musical, Les Miserables, which is both hard to pronounce and also not mainstream at all, has become the talk of the town, and by that, I mean, everyone really cares about who is starring in the film adaptation of the musical.

Tom Hooper will direct the movie version of Les Miserables and after announcing that Anne Hathaway would indeed be in the movie, this flick is already boasting a line-up of actor/singers like Hugh Jackman, Russell Crowe, Sacha Baron Cohen, Eddie Redmayne and Helena Bonham Carter.

Now the film has confirmed that Taylor Swift is in "negotiations" to play the part of Eponine and Amanda Seyfriend is supposedly going to play "Cosette" in the film.

Taylor Swift beat out Glee star Lea Michele for the role of Eponine which is crazy because Lea Michele already played that role in a staging of the musical at the Hollywood Bowl, but that doesn't mean anything because the Hollywood Bowl is this place were celebrities occasionally star in musicals even though there are better singers in the musical theater world who should have those role.

Scarlet Johansson and Evan Rachel Wood were also vying for the role of Epononine, but I guess the flick wanted to go with the country starlet.
