Aaron Tveit - 'Les Miserables'
Pro: Tveit may not be a familiar name to filmgoers, but that could work in his favor: when the makers of a major musical cast a practised Broadway pro in a key role, as opposed to a more widely known star, it’s often because they know they’ve got the goods. Enjolras, a charismatic freedom-fighter, is a small but memorable presence in the stage show, involved in several musical numbers.
Con: Given the size and star-power of the cast, Tveit will really have to pop in this modest part – particularly given that he’ll be competing with Russell Crowe’s Javert, practically a lead role by comparison, for supporting attention.
