Not too pumped about that. We'll see. I'm sure he'll be better than Drew Sarich, but that's not hard.

Following Rebecca Caine's Twitter is quite hilarious right now.

She did some major clean up in her Twitter months ago, and similar on her FB weeks ago. Lots of people were deleted from her follow/friend list. Including Nick Jonas. Now his friends/fans/whatever are FURIOUS at her because she's such a hater, and such an old nobody. Who is she to delete NICK JONAS?? She's feeding the trolls (on purpose, of course) by re-tweeting their negative comments about her. Like "Who is this Rebecca Caine woman? Was in les mis 100 years ago or something". And I think she highly enjoys it all. Laughing

(she's also officially saying she has nothing against him, she just unfollowed him on Twitter. Just for the record)

That's... wow.

I mean, I know that current Spanish Valjean is only 30 years old and is (as I've been told) superb in it, but it's just hard to picture Karimloo on that role.

We'll just have to wait.

Seriously?

Er...does this mean Bring Him Home will now be sung with Valjean's shirt open and with extra growls to, um, "rock it up"? Razz

I think it's practically confirmed. Someone was at some private event last night and tweeted "Just heard Ramin singing BHH - perfect Valjean for 2012" and then the article came out about the rumour. His fangirls are claiming to have guessed it long ago during one of their many conversations with him Rolling Eyes anyway that's beside the point, it seems to be true.

Also, in regards to RC, it's great she's taking it in her stride but I know I certainly wouldn't - some of the comments directed towards her are brutal!

I started following Rebecca Caine a few weeks ago. She is hysterical. Her tweets are some that I really look forward to reading on a daily basis. My favorite tweet of hers was right after the POTO 25th when she was wondering who that Jonas Brother was up onstage singing with JOJ, Anthony Warlow and Colm Wilkinson Laughing

Perfect Valjean for 2012? WTH does that mean? Are we supposed to retroactively de-age our characters when the calendar flips or something?

I'm a bit surprised, actually. Ramin so frequently goes on about how he wants to do unusual stuff and expand his range and "improve [his] craft" that for him to stick to the Cameron Mackintosh megamusical circuit seems rather odd.

Confirmed : click here

What an oddly short run. He'll do 6 shows a week and have 2 alternates (one show a week each.)

Why would that be? Is he perhaps the first Valjean in West End history to have an alternate?

Incidentally, anyone know if Alfie Boe is worth seeing in Miz? I don't really have any inclination to see the show at the moment, as I saw it too many times for my liking last year, but maybe...

Ramin declared after Love Never Dies he would never again do 8 show weeks or year long contracts so I'd guess that's why he is getting an alternate. Both Simon Bowman and Alfie Boe have had alternates though no one has ever had two though I don't believe!

I've not seen him myself but I've heard he is worth going along to see from others, however he is off a fair bit at the moment so he can apparently be hard to actually end up seeing due to that.

But the audience doesn't boo 8 times a week in Les Misérables... Wink

Interesting, didn't know about Bowman and Boe having alternates. Did any Valjeans before them have alternates? Or is this a recent thing?

I think it's a recent thing. During Simon Bowman's first contract he took one Monday a month off but then his second contract he took every Monday off and had an "official" alternate. Alfie Boe's alternate does Mondays and Wednesday matinees. I know that David Shannon and Drew Sarich didn't have alternates but I'm not sure if anyone did before them but I don't think so.

I've seen him. I thought he was good, but not the best Valjean I've seen. I suppose he's worth seeing for his Bring Him Home, but that wasn't much different to the 25th concert last year. I'm going in a couple of weeks when he's scheduled to be off, as I've always been very impressed by his alternate, Jonathan Williams.

Ramin as Valjean? I sort of expected it to happen, especially since Hadley Fraser is playing Javert. Fraser is a very young Javert, so anyone much older than Ramin would have looked a bit strange. The prospect of the Karimloo/Fraser Valjean/Javert pairing doesn't exactly excite me.

Well, staying away from the show for 3 months isn't going to kill you. Maybe you'll get a palatable, more traditional Valjean next spring.

I know someone who loved Drew and I could never understand why!

Someone once described Hadley Fraser as sounding like a sheep as Javert so I don't really see it being a terribly exciting 3 months at the Queens. I'm intrigued to see that the general "yay awesome" attitude to the Ramin news elsewhere has died down and a lot of people are actually unimpressed/ bored by the casting.

I've said it before and I've said it again he just won't be able to act it, I am almost certain of it. I wish David Shannon would go back at some point (he genuinely seemed to love the role and still got excited talking about it years afterward) but he's staying away from theatre for quite a while now... shame really.

As far as I remember, Drew Sarich really divided opinion. People either loved him or loathed him. I have a feeling Ramin will do the same.

Interesting--I like that they're getting some lesser-known performers in there, with so much star power already on board.

The Broadway World message board has a couple clips of him singing--rather promising!

Here you go--there are two links near the top of the page, one an audio recording of Mendelssohn's "Ave Maria" and the other a film clip with a very quick snippet of "Lord of All Hopefulness" (one of my favorite hymns!).

I read on Rebecca Caine's twitter that she bumped into some 'original cast member' of Les Miserables going to try out for a role in the film.

I wonder who it was. She said the person was 'prestigious'.

My bets are on Wilkinson.

Redmayne is quite well known on the straight play circuit and he's done a lot of films before. I think he'll be great. This cast makes me strangely jealous/bitter in a way -- jealous that the film of Phantom had about 0.00000000000000000000001% of the talent of this film.

I'm liking what I've heard of Redmayne, though I don't think I've seen any of his films. Interesting that a star of the stage version is trying out for one of the other roles... Wilkinson as the Bishop would be pretty cool, though I'd also love to see Alun Armstrong and Roger Allam involved in some way.
