Just for fun, cast a 1988(?) "movie"!
Dear "Les Mis" Fans,
I'm sorry, but I really can't remember weather "Les Mis" first debuted on Broadway during 1985, 1987, 1988, or 19?, so let's just call the year 1988...(?) (That was one of my favorite years, anyway), and let's say that you're helping to decide who gets cast in a late 1980s movie version of the "Les Mis" musical. Who would YOU cast in each role? NOTE: You don't have to list each character, but please list at least three different characters, and feel free to list either theatre stars, or cinema actors who can sing acceptably.
The following is my "1988 Cast List"; the list isn't gonna be very good, because I know next to Jack about the TRUE singing actors of 1988:
JEAN VALJEAN: Phil Harris
FANTINE: Vanessa Williams
JAVERT: The guy who starred as the detective in "Roger Rabbit"; I wonder if he can sing well...
MARIUS: Rick Astley
COSETTE: Debbie Gibson
MADAME THERNARDIER: Carol Burnett
ENROJLES: Billy Joel
GAVROCHE: The youngest Seaver boy from "Family Ties"?
Thanks in advance for your replies.
