Oh I can assure you Hugh CAN sing. Check him out on You Tube. This wasn't his best vocals, but down to using "live vocal takes" so a few of those umpteen takes were probably much better than the one Hooper went with. But he wasn't miscast, nor, the more I watch it and vocal quality a la stage version becomes less and less of an issue, was Russell. I agree with the poster up thread (I think it was Irma Bunt who said they'd seen and heard Javroche sung better but never better acted.
I agree. People need to watch him in Oklahoma, Boy from oz, his solo shows etc. to see he can really sing although I think he sounds great in Les Mis too
Yeah, he actually started out in musical theatre didn't he, long before he came to fame as Wolverine.
