He didn't have to go far - he is Australian. Annie is actually his Broadway debut!

Here's his "Do You Hear the People Sing?" from the Complete Symphonic Recording. He was Enjolras. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9902AApdyW8

I love that recording. It's the only one of the entire show - it takes up 3 CDs!

And the guy who plays Feuilly on that recording ("Will you give all you can give so that our banner may advance...") is William Solo. He played Jean Valjean the first time I saw Les Mis on Broadway.

Loved Annie. Glad you enjoyed. I knew he was Australian, but I forgot his Les Mis connection.

I love him! I'm pretty sure I used to have some kind of recording with him as Javert but I can't seem to find any songs online that arent terrible quality.

You could always go with the original Broadway cast recording. He plays Javert on that version.

I had that many moons ago. I think I played it so much that it finally died. I'll have to get a new copy, I think.

Also, if anyone is interested in a full soundtrack from the movie, besides the 'highlights of highlights' version that's out now, there's apparently a 48-track version in the works. Russell Crowe has been telling people to tweet the studio and the record company to get it done:

@russellcrowe
I know there has been talk of releasing the complete score and 48 tune soundtrack of #LesMis tell @UniversalPics you want it
Quote:
https://twitter.com/russellcrowe/sta...37767955099648

@russellcrowe
The other people to let know you'd like to have the complete score/48 tunes of #LesMis is @RepublicRecords
Quote:
https://twitter.com/russellcrowe/sta...50571178237952

@russellcrowe
A lot of you have tweeted @UniversalPics re complete score/soundtrack for #LesMis but I think you should focus on tweeting @RepublicRecords
So I guess the Republic Records twitter is the one to go after. (make up your mind, Russell! ) But a full soundtrack would be nice, since so many songs are missing from the current one.

The soundtrack is currently the #1 album in the UK, where the movie is at it's second weekend in a row at #1 at the box office.

In my eyes, Michael will always be Marius; Colm is forever Valjean, and Lea is Eponine. So, I'm old I guess.
Saw Les Miz again today for the second time, this time with my self-proclaimed Les Miz expert, DD#2, who has seen the stage production more than 100 times (approximately 30 in London and the rest when she ushered at the National Theatre in Washington DC during a national tour).

I won't critique the movie other than to say I really really liked it and will undoubtedly buy the DVD when it's available. Anything I could say has already been said by someone else, and in most cases more eloquently.

Ugadog99 is absolutely right about Michael Ball; I'd pay to hear him sing the New York City yellow pages! Unfortunately her daughter is kinda right, too. Did anyone else see him in "Aspects of Love"? Probably the best physical shape he'd ever been in (or since!).

I did! I got his autograph at the stage door after the show too. He was so nice! He looked great in that show, too.

He hosted the UK premiere of the movie (there was an awesome UK tv special that was up on YouTube, but it was taken down), and he's performing "Suddenly" on his new album. He's been raving about the movie on Twitter.
