Russell Crowe And Helena Bonham Carter Sing For ‘Les Miserables’

Do you hear the people sing? Singing the song of Russell Crowe?

Well, you’ll certainly be hearing his singing voice in full force come December 2012, as the Oscar winning actor has been cast as fugitive hunter Javert in Tom Hooper’s “Les Miserables.” Crowe is in talks to star opposite Hugh Jackman in the musical adaptation, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Additionally, the always creepy Helena Bonham Carter has been tapped to join the cast as Madame Thenardier, who sings the best line by far in “Master of the House.” Great casting all around!
