Hugh Jackman Gives A “Thumbs Up,” Casting Updates For ‘Les Mis’

Hugh Jackman takes his family to Locanda Verde Italian restuarant in New York City this afternoon (October 24th) and threw daughter Ava up on his shoulders for a  better view of Tribeca.  The multitalented star was in good spirits, per usual, giving the paparazzi a “thumbs up.”

It was just announced that Anne Hathaway will join Jackman and Russell Crowe in the screen adaptation of Les Miserables, according to IMDB.  Oscar winner Tom Hooper (The King’s Speech) will direct the film, with Jackman playing Jean Valjean, Hathaway as Fantine and Crowe as Inspector Javert.
