Considering Tom Hooper's splashy, star-studded musical "Les Miserables" is due in theaters by the end of the year, this thing needs to finish casting and get in front of cameras soon. And the race is on, as offers are now out for a couple of the remaining roles to be cast.

It looks like Sacha Baron Cohen is set to get musical and go French once again. The man who squared off against Johnny Depp in "Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber Of Fleet Street," and recently twirled a villainous moustache as the station inspector in "Hugo," is combining skills from both movies for his latest role.

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.

After beating the odds and winning the Oscar for Achievement in Directing last year, Tom Hooper has set his sights on quite a gigantic project. Hooper has never shied away from complicated, big-budget projects including HBO's "John Adams" miniseries and last year's Oscar triumph "The King's Speech," so the fact that he's moving forward with a film adaptation of "Les Miserables" for Universal is no surprise. We were surprised, however at just how fast the project is steaming ahead with Variety reporting today that Hugh Jackman is in talks for what we presume to be the lead role of Jean Valjean.
