Encore!

They Nailed It!

Attention theatre nerds and “How I Met Your Mother” fans, alike. Gather ‘round, my children and see what happened on Thursday night’s episode of “Inside The Actor’s Studio.” In honor of the series finale of “HIMYM” and the Broadway revival of the legendary “Les Mis,” Jason Segel and Neil Patrick Harris performed an impromptu version of “The Confrontation” with Segel singing the part of Jean Valjean and NPH as Javert. Most impressive: they did it a cappella. They are true performers. I feel like this could happen for real. [People]

I know, I know, she’s not actually wearing a sweatshirt with her own picture on it. But the face and mouth of this little sweatshirt angel do look suspiciously like Ms. Seyfried in all her “Les Mis” glory.

For Your Consideration: The Best Anne Hathaway Parody Ever?

"I play a prostitute who diessssssss..."

Listen, it’s only fair. Anne Hathaway has very capably spoofed fellow actresses Claire Danes and Katie Holmes, so she should feel honored to have someone spoofing her. In the video above, directed by USC graduate student Alberto Belli, actress Emma Fitzpatrick plays Anne as Fantine from “Les Miserables,” pleading for Oscar votes to the tune of her famous solo, “I Dreamed A Dream.” Hathaway is, like, a shoe-in to win the Best Supporting Actress Oscar and has, I think, won every other award she’s been up for this awards season, including the Golden Globe and the SAG Award.

3 Love Lessons From “Les Miserables”

I could gush all day about the 2012 film adaptation of “Les Misérables.” It’s everything a movie musical should be. The film itself is like a love letter from the director (Tom Hooper) to the musical’s original creators that says: Your work is perfection on stage. Let’s do it justice on film. And he succeeded.

But alas, this isn’t a review, so I’ll refrain from gushing and introduce instead three of the film’s most poignant love lessons:

1. Check yourself. The next time you get all self-pitying about your love life (Why hasn’t he texted me yet?!), consider a small dose of “Les Mis.” Once you hear Fantine’s (played by Anne Hathway) gutwrenching tale of lost love in the show-stopping ballad “I Dreamed A Dream,” your petty problems will fall instantly into perspective … that is, unless you also lost your job as an 1823 French factory worker when you were outed for having an illegitimate child and were subsequently relegated to a life of prostitution that consumed your soul and ultimately ended your life. No? Okay then. Read more…

"You know how I love musicals"

What can be said about the new “Les Miserables” film that hasn’t already been said? Let’s ask Violent J and Shaggy 2 Dope of Insane Clown Posse and Psychopathic Records. Does it feature “Gladiator vs. Wolverine”? Yes, yes it does. Is it about the miserable? Well, yes it is. And is the best part of the film a cameo of an elephant butt? Perhaps!

Watch this clip to find out whether ICP — and you — will be heading to the theaters opening day. (Answer for J and Shaggy 2 Dope: Not likely, though Violent J “does like musicals.”)

 

Love It Or Leave It: Anne Hathaway’s Avant-Garde “Les Miserables” Premiere Look?

Les Mis Love Lessons

Anne Hathaway certainly isn’t the first celeb to shed her sartorial inhibitions with her long hair (see: the Miley Cyrus metamorphosis), but she has proven herself to be far and away one of the most daring. If last week’s love-it-or-loathe-it Givenchy gown wasn’t proof enough for you, this elaborate Tom Ford look should do the trick. Anne is working the Rooney Mara angle pretty hard here in this black high-necked column dress, but turn her ’round and there’s some kind of attached cape situation going on, too. Add the strappy thigh-high bondage shoes (boots, perhaps?) into the mix and you’ve got yourself a look for sure.

One of the key attributes to pulling off an ensemble this ambitious is looking like you know what you’re doing, also known as confidence, and Anne has that in spades… so I’m not hating the overall effect probably half as much as I should. I just think the lady is kind of working it. What say you?

Is Anne's daring look doing it for you?

All The Looks From The “Les Misérables” World Premiere

I’m pretty stoked about “Les Misérables,” mostly because I practically inhaled the book as a precocious 13-year-old but never got the chance to catch it on Broadway. I cry every time the trailer comes on so I should probably, definitely go see it alone. Still, we were hoping that Anne Hathaway, what with her angling for a 2013 Oscar nom for her role as ill-fated prostitute Fantine, would fare slightly better on the red carpet at the film’s world premiere. Check out more photos, and highly scientific sartorial observations, in the gallery above!

Anne Hathaway Belts It Out In The “Les Misérables” Trailer

Well, she shaved her head and lost a ton of weight to play Fantine in the latest movie version of “Les Misérables,” but from the looks of this early trailer (the movie isn’t due out until Christmas), it was worth it. Anne Hathaway sings a pretty damn good rendition of “I Dreamed A Dream” as Victor Hugo’s ill-fated prostitute (who sells her hair and her teeth to take care of her own sickly child); hopefully the film is as solid because the last one — starring Uma Thurman, Claire Danes, and Liam Neeson — was terrrrrrible.
