Lea Michele May NOT Be a Shoo-In for Les Miz Film

By Samuel Negin

Who wouldn’t want to see Lea Michele as Eponine in the much-buzzed-about upcoming film version of the megahit musical Les Miserables? Given the latest piece of news I just read, it may be that film’s producers. I have just read that, while she gave a knockout audition for the role, but that the producers are still considering strongly such Hollywood favorites as Scarlett Johansson and Evan Rachel Wood, as well as recording star Taylor Swift.

After Rough Week, Governors Awards Ceremony Gives Academy Reason to Celebrate
