Evan Rachel Wood

Oscar-winning director Tom Hooper‘s big-screen version of Les Miserables has already big names including Hugh Jackman, Russell Crowe, Helena Bonham Carter, Anne Hathaway, Eddie Redmayne and Geoffrey Rush.

But we learned today that Taylor Swift, Lea Michele, Scarlett Johansson and Evan Rachel Wood are all in the running for the highly coveted role of Eponine.

Scarlett Johansson

Now, rumors are coming out that they have all auditioned for the role but no decisions have been made. We must admit it will be a tough choice.

Eponine, a character from Victor Hugo‘s Les Miserables novel, is a child spoiled by her parents, the Thenardiers, until they become poor. She falls in love with Marius and dies trying to save his life.

Marius will be played by Redmayne. Helena Bonham Carter and Geoffrey Rush will star as Madam and Monsieur Thenardier, while Jackman will play Jean Valjean. Crowe will be Inspector Javert. Hathaway has the role of Fantine.

Les Miserables is set for release on December 25th, 2012.

What do you think?

    it will stupid of them to cast someone who cant carry the notes. in my opinion, lea michelle should have been offered thisr ole ages ago, other than the obvious fact that she can sing the damn song “on my own” and looks the part. Scarlet is too pretty for the part, taylor too pretty and lacks the vocal power, evan would have been good though, never seen her sing, evan can give eponine some sass that she obviously can do (see true blood). and i am still sad that the role of jean valjean wasnt given to alfie boe.
