Has SBC been confirmed? I hadn't seen anything confirming his participation.

We he gave an interview recently saying he was taking singing lessons for the role so unless the deal has fallen through I'm assuming he's still playing Thenardier.

Delay in official announcement could be due to scheduling problems because Baron Cohen is working on Quentin Tarantino’s Django Unchained, having just finished The Dictator. He’s also signed on to play Freddie Mercury in a film biography.

God job one of us is paying attention! Sam Barks is the last one I should have left off! Duly amended and thanks for taking the time and trouble to point out my omission.
