Posted by Katie F. on January 4th, 2012

Looks like Taylor Swift has something else to focus on other than writing songs for her upcoming album. Swift has been offered a part in the film adaption of the musical Les Miserables. Tom Hooper, the director of the movie, has been auditioning actresses since November, including Lea Michele, Scarlett Johansson, and Evan Rachel Wood, but has finally settled on Taylor. He offered her the role of Eponine. If she accepts the part, she’ll join a cast that already includes Hugh Jackman, Helena Bonham Carter, Russell Crowe, Sacha Baron Cohen and Anne Hathaway. Amanda Seyfried was also just offered a major role.

There are many celebs set to star in Les Miserables, but many stars have taken part in other musicals too, both on stage and on the big screen. Here are a few other celebrities that play roles that show off their musical side.
