A movie version of the popular Broadway musical Les Miserables is in the works, and the pivotal role of Eponine (she sings THE famous song On My Own from the show) still hasn’t been cast.
According to reports, a handful of famous actresses are in the running/have auditioned for the part — Scarlett Johansson, Evan Rachel Wood…and two very notable ones being Lea Michele (yay!) and…Taylor Swift?!
You have GOT to be kidding me! Taylor Swift?! Come on now! While I am a fan of Taylor’s, if we’re talking Les Miserables, there’s NO COMPETITION. Lea Michele WAS in certain productions as Eponine before. Not to mention the vocal ability. I mean, can you imagine Taylor singing On My Own?!
I know they may consider Taylor because of the amount of pull/audience she would be able to attract considering how popular she is, but…I’m sorry…let’s just hope they make the right decision on this one…
