Amanda Seyfried Offered Cosette Role In Les Miserables

Twitch reports that Amanda Seyfried has been offered the role of Cosette in Tom Hooper's (King's Speech) Les Miserables. The high profiled musical already boasts an impressive cast that includes Hugh Jackman, Russell Crowe, Anne Hathaway, Helena Bonham Carter and Sacha Baron Cohen. Seyfried seems like a decent choice as she was apart of the successful Mama Mia! film. A majority of the casting decisions seem like Hooper is on roll so far. 

Taylor Swift has been offered the role of Eponine. Scarlett Johansson had been linked for the role and seemed an inspired casting choice since she can sing as well as she can act. While Swift is still learning the craft of acting and could feel out of place alongside these vets and heavyweights. Either way I'm interested in the film which is saying a lot as I'm not a big fan of musicals. Les Miserables will be released on December 7th of this year.
