Barricadiers, Courfeyrac has been cast!
Fra Fee has been cast as Courfeyrac in the Les Mis movie! And I think I totally saw him on the West End in the show this spring! Will have to check my program when I get home.
Anyway, he's officially on the IMDB page
and you can check out pics of his cute self here. (BTW- I'm very pleased that my character is being played by such a cutie)
Also, Alistair Brammer (Jean Prouvaire) and Killain Donnely (Combeferre) have both mentioned the casting in their Twitters! Although they are not officially listed on IMDB yet.
In case you haven't heard, there will be a new song in the Les Mis Movie.
To be 100% honest, I feel like kicking and screaming right now. I think this is totally unnecessary - the show is long enough as it is and adding a new song to the film probably means getting rid of an old tune or two...
But maybe I'll see it first and judge second. Let's hope it'll be good.
Check out the article about it on Playbill.com
I'm with Starlene. When the show is already long enough that it will be cut for the movie, I see no need to add. But at least it was written by the original songwriting team of Schönberg, Alain Boublil and lyricist Herbert Kretzmer. So no worries about some outsider tacking something in where it shouldn't be.
The song is to be called, "Suddenly" and is about Val Jean's feelings when he takes Cosette away from the inn. Even better news, it's based on a passage from the book!
Anyway, check out the article, and stay tuned. As the year goes on I'm sure we'll only be hearing more and more interesting news!
BTW- rumor has it that Jeff Nicholson (Foreman in the 25th Ann) is working on the film.
