Russell Crowe Finding Broadway Stars in LesMis Movie hard acts to follow

Russell Crowe is currently involved in filming Les Miserables playing the vocally challenging role of Inspector Javert.  Oscar winning Crowe has been a musician for as long as he’s been an actor and frequently gigs with his band “The Ordinary Fear of God,” but according to Fox News he is feeling a bit intimidated by Broadway co-stars Hugh Jackman, Amanda Seyfried and Anne Hathaway

Javert has some very pòwerful numbers and most of the singing requires a number of takes as it is being done live on screen rather than in a studio. According to an insider “He is pretty out-of-his element which is strange for Russell.  He’s co-starring with Hugh Jackman and Anna Hathaway, both very experienced musical performers, so this is all very daunting.

Crowe did not respond to a request for comment, but according to sources Crowe is on his best behaviour on set and “Is easy to work with”.

Universal Pictures gave audiences a preview of what to expect during last week’s CinemaCon convention in Las Vegas showing a clip of the LesMis characters in their costumes accompanied by Anne Hathaway’s rendition of “I Dreamed a Dream”.  The response was a big thumbs up.
