The upcoming film version of “Les Miserables” has added yet another familiar face to its cast.
Broadway vet Aaron Tveit (also known as “Gossip Girl’s” Trip van der Bilt) is joining an all-star cast comprised of Hugh Jackman (Jean Valjean), Russell Crowe (Inspector Javert), Anne Hathaway (Fantine), Taylor Swift (Eponine) and Amanda Seyfried (Cosette) in the big-screen adaptation of the classic musical.
Tveit will play Enjolras, the leader of a Parisian student rebellion, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
Also rumored for the film are Sacha Baron Cohen and Helena Bonham Carter, but they haven’t been confirmed just yet.
The “Les Mis” movie will be directed by Tom Hooper (“The King’s Speech”) and is scheduled for release on Dec. 7, 2012. (That’s way soon! They better start filming ASAP!)
