Les Miserables Well, it had to happen soon or later, didn’t it. But directed by . . . Tom Hooper? Yup, the “King’s Speech” guy. That’s like having Richard Attenborough direct “A Chorus Line.” (Uh-oh, he did?) Pretty impressive cast, though: Hugh Jackman as Jean Valjean; Anne Hathaway as Fantine; Russell Crowe as Javert; Amanda Seyfried as Cosette; and (truly, a marriage made in not-nice heaven) Sacha Baron Cohen and Helena Bonham Carter as the Thenardiers.
