The Line-Up: OSCAR EDITION!
1. Six Degrees of Separation from the Barricade: name an actor and try to connect him or her to Les Miz in six steps or less
(For example: The Olsen Twins: Were friends with Heath Ledger, who starred opposite Jake Gyllenhaal who dated Taylor Swift who dated Joe Jonas-brother of Nick who played Gavroche on Broadway in: Les Miz)
2. Is it possible that Fantine died from attempting to belt a high E while dying of consumption? I’m just saying.
3. At the End of the Film You’re Another Year Older
4. Ann Hathaway's mother has also played Fantine.
5. A post on the Les Miz imdb site points out the film’s following anachronism: “The calf seen wandering in the barricades scene is a white-faced Hereford poll. That breed did not exist before 1880, and did not reach France until the 20th Century.”
Thus missing the larger goof: people do not sing while dying in France.
6. What original Broadway cast member of Les Miz appeared in the film adaptation of Rent?
(Answer: Broadway’s original Fantine, Randy Graff, played Mark’s mother in the film Rent)
7. What is the name of the sequel to Les Miz?
(Answer: Cosette by Laura Kalpakian, HarperCollins; July 1995)
