Moviemaker Tom Hooper is convinced his Les Miserables stars Anne Hathaway and Hugh Jackman used the Oscars to audition for roles in his ambitious production.

The King's Speech director was mulling over his cast choices when he caught Hathaway serenading Jackman while co-hosting the 2011 Academy Awards - and he immediately knew the stars would be perfect as his Fantine and Jean Valjean.

Hooper tells WENN, "I remember I was sitting at the Oscars two years ago and was in the middle of this difficult decision about whether to do Les Miserables. I was kind of close to saying the final 'Yes'. A...

Movie 43
If you ask us, if Movie 43 is just half as funny as the trailer, it's destined to be a classic. We have no idea what it's about, other than it's actually 25 short films helmed by several different directors including Peter Farrelly, Elizabeth Banks, Bob Odenkirk, Brett Ratner and Griffin Dunne, and it features a huge, HUGE cast of A-list stars.

The film's greenband trailer (e.g.: approved-for-all-audiences) premiered during Tuesday night's episode of Tosh.0 on Comedy Central; and on Wednesday the very not-safe-for-work (NSFW) red-band trailer debuted on the network's website (according to...

Les Miserables
The latest poster to promote director Tom Hooper's big screen adaptation of the stage production based on Victor Hugo's epic tale Les Miserables was released on Monday, and it bears a striking resemblance to the original artwork used for Broadway's longest-running musical.

Jackman will be playing Marvel Comics' Wolverine for the fifth time, sixth if you count his short cameo in X-Men: First Class.

James Mangold will be taking the helm instead. His previous work includes Walk the Line, Knight & Day, and Identity.
