It might still be coming together, but the cast of the long-awaited film version of "Les Miserables," directed by "The King's Speech"'s Oscar winning director Tom Hooper, is what can politely be described as 'eclectic.' Two burly Australian leading men, Hugh Jackman and Russell Crowe, have the lead roles, one a Broadway veteran, one a rock star hobbyist. Anne Hathaway, a gifted singer, albeit one with little stage musical experience, is also involved, while a rising star, Eddie Redmayne, an acclaimed actress, Helena Bonham Carter and a comedian, Sacha Baron Cohen, will likely take supporting roles, and "Mamma Mia" star Amanda Seyfried recently signed on, with fresh-faced popstar Taylor Swift mulling over an offer to join her.

For those of you who have been greatly concerned that Tom Hooper's upcoming big screen version of "Les Miserables" will be filmed with an extra dimension, you can breathe a sigh of relief. The BBC is reporting (because, really, who else would care?) that while director Hooper, who we've all been trying to forget beat David Fincher for the Best Director Oscar last year, was "very tempted" to use the new technology, his 'Les Mis' will be incredibly flat. Yes, that was a joke.
