We learned a while ago that the cast of the upcoming Les Miserables on-screen adaptation would be singing live on screen, so it is a little harder for production to keep the paparazzi from following the sound of music.

Fans of Les Miserables will recognize this moment from early in the musical after Jean Valjean’s first soliloquy to himself after being saved by a priest who gives him a set of silver candles. That’s his parole slip that he’s tearing up and we can expect his scraggly beard to be gone by the time he decides to become a mayor.

What do you think? Excited to hear more? Do you think that Les Miserables will meet its December 2012 deadline?

      After going back, I can see that you TOTALLY did! A friend of mine just showed it to me today, I can’t wait for it! Like I said, I just hope it makes the deadline!

    He does have a good belt. 

    Can’t wait to see more. :)

    Is it me or is that half a step down? (G# instead of A)

      I’m pretty sure you’re right. Which makes me wonder, how is he going to sing “Bring him Home”? Admittedly it might be easier to sing those high notes not belting, but still. We’ll have to wait and see I suppose.

        The role was originally written as baritone, which Hugh is. It’s going to be great if people don’t nit pick it to death before it’s even seen in theaters.

    I forgot to add, in answer to the question about the deadline: They seem to be filming at breakneck speed. Very long shooting days and several location shootings being done at the same time. I’m confident that it will be ready. Can’t wait!
