Whether you loved it or hated it, the 2012 Les Misérables movie with Anne Hathaway, Hugh Jackman and Russell Crowe received much attention especially with Hathaway’s version of “I Dreamed A Dream” and many other parts sung by the actors.
A visual representation by Matt Isherwood of Flickographics, breaks down each scene. Along the top is location (based on the soundtrack) with colored Cluedo-like icons representing the actor’s singing as well as their dying song denoted by a line under the colored icon. This gives you a great overview of how many singing parts each actor had per location of Les Mis.
Interestingly, we discover that Hugh Jackman had the most presence with 19 songs, followed by Eddie Redmayne (Marius) with 16, Aaron Tveit (Enjolras) with 9, Crowe (Javert) and Seyfried (Cosette) with 8, Baron Cohen (Mr. Thenardier) with 6, Bronham Carter (Mrs. Thenardier) and Barks (Eponine) with 5, and Huttlestone (Gavroche) with 4.
And if you’re wondering about the duets, according to Isherwood’s site:
In terms of combos despite there being several character pairings who share five songs (Mr & Mrs Thenardier, Marius & Eponine, Marius & Enjolras, Javert & Valjean), it’s the lovebirds Marius & Cosette who get to spend the most time singing at each other with six.
