Gallery, General News, Les Misérables, Public Appearances Comments Off on Luncheon for Cast and Crew of ‘Les Misérables’

In honor of the hardworking cast and crew of Les Misérables, a special luncheon was held earlier today – December 11th – at the Four Seasons Restaurant. These are typically held during award season, helping the creatives behind a film reach out to potential voters. While there was supposed to be a Q&A today, the cast opted instead to croon to those in attendance. Read an account of the afternoon below:

Stage veteran Samantha Barks, who played Eponine on London’s West End before reprising the role in Tom Hooper’s film adaptation, stepped up first. She sang a sultry version of “Summertime” from George Gershwin’s Porgy and Bess.

Apparently, that was enough to get Hugh Jackman’s competitive juices flowing. After apologizing in advance for the condition of his voice following last night’s premiere party, Jackman grabbed the microphone and sang “The Way You Look Tonight” – changing the last word to “Today,” in honor of the time of day – directly to his wife, Deborra-Lee Furness, who was sitting just a few feet away. Not surprisingly, his voice sounded flawless.

You know who wasn’t going to be outdone by Hugh Jackman? Jackman’s fellow former Oscar host Anne Hathaway, who is a favorite to win the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress for her portrayal of tragic Fantine in the movie. But she also wasn’t going to go it alone. Here she is beckoning her cast mates to join her at the front of the room. [Where they then sang “Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas.”]
