Last week, we gave you a first look at Hugh Jackman as Jean Valjean in Tom Hooper‘s musical adaptation of Les Miserables. The film is currently shooting in London, England and The Daily Telegraph now has the first image of Russell Crowe as the ruthless Inspector Javert.
Wearing an official Bicorne hat and seen on top of a black horse, Crowe was rather grim-faced which is perfect for the role of the relentless policeman whose sole mission is to send Valjean back to prison. I’m really excited to see what Crowe can bring to the character. Check out the picture below and let us know what you think!
Les Miserables opens December 14th.
Set against the backdrop of 19th-century France, Les Misérables tells an enthralling story of broken dreams and unrequited love, passion, sacrifice and redemption–a timeless testament to the survival of the human spirit. Jackman plays ex-prisoner Jean Valjean, hunted for decades by the ruthless policeman Javert (Crowe) after he breaks parole. When Valjean agrees to care for factory worker Fantine’s (Hathaway) young daughter, Cosette, their lives change forever.
