Last night, Broadway.com announced that the young star Aaron Tveit will join the cast of Tom Hooper’s film adaptation of Les Misérables as the leader of the student revolutionaries, Enjolras. Tveit has been seen in many Broadway shows including Hairspray, Next to Normal, Wicked, and Catch Me If You Can. This is the actor’s first big Hollywood role, although he has previously had parts in the movies Ghost Town and Howl.
Production is slated to begin filming in London, England in March of 2012.
What do you think about Aaron Tveit leading the ranks of the revolutionaries? Can he hold his own at the barricades, or do you think he will be lost in the shuffle of big names like Hugh Jackman?
