by Fallon Prinzivalli

Since the announcement of the A-list cast for “Les Miserables,” fans of the actors involved have been hitting the web daily hoping for a glimpse of the characters. Hence the paparazzi photos posted online last week of Hugh Jackman and Russell Crowe on set.

On the heels of that leak, Jackman posted the first official image from the film on his Twitter. He wrote, “Very excited about how the first days of filming are going!! Check out my convict look…but its changing soon.”

Jackman’s talking about how his character – the movie’s protagonist Jean Valjean – repents from his ways as a thief to become an honorable factory owner. The photo shows Valjean in his former stage of stealing silverware and fighting the law, which includes police officer Javert (Crowe).

The cast also features Anne Hathaway, Helena Bonham Carter and Eddie Redmayne. Big thanks to Collider for the heads up!
