Since Celebrity Deathmatch sadly remains a fictional show, we’ll have to figure out who should be cast in the upcoming Les Miserables movie, co-starring Anne Hathaway and Hugh Jackman, the old-fashioned way: based solely on our personal opinion! Oh, and talent and singing ability, too. We guess.
The New York Post reported today that everyone and their hotter older sister are currently up for the role of the tragic love-lorn Eponine: Glee‘s Lea Michele, Taylor Swift, Scarlett Johansson and Evan Rachel Wood. In addition to being a convincing doe-eyed heroine, Lea actually starred as young Cosette in the Broadway version of the musical. However, the Glee actress faces the same problem as Taylor Swift: you know they’d kill their big number “On My Own,” but would you buy them getting mortally wounded on the barricade while dressed in drag? (Sorry if that detail needed a spoiler alert; the book came out in 1862.) ScarJo admittedly has both the chops and the pipes necessary, but our money is on Evan Rachel Wood. She just looks like she belongs in tuberculosis-ridden 19th-century France. Who would you pick?
