Hugh Jackman on becoming Jean Valjean in 'Les Miz.'

Ok, Les Miz fans...there are only a few days left (finally!) until the movie hits theaters and with all the award nominations leading man Hugh Jackman is racking up, we know you can't wait to catch his turn as sympathetic ex-con Jean Valjean. In a new video feature following Hugh during production Jackman describes Valjean as "the kind of role you dream of playing," but notes it required more strength — emotionally, physically and vocally — than any other role he's ever tackled. Les Miz director Tom Hooper describes Jackman as the "Holy Grail" of actors, and his co-stars, Russell Crowe and Eddie Redmayne, credit him with being the lynchpin of the epic production. Click below to find out more about Jackman's creative process and be sure to check out the movie on December 25!
