Jean Valjean's been hitting the gym!

In Broadway's past, the actor playing Jean Valjean, the hero of Les Miserables, typically looks like the kind of guy who would steal a loaf of breadoff the next table in a restaurant. But the new revival of the beloved musical is throwing the notion that Valjean is a doughy rival to the more fit Inspector Javert out the window, giving Broadway the ripped musical theater hunk Ramin Karimloo in the iconic role. So how does that change the onstage fireworks between Karimloo and Tony nominee Will Swenson as Javert, which reaches its peak in the Act One duet "The Confrontation"? We asked the pair at a recent rehearsal, and heard talk of airborne actors, rehearsal bruises and a "fight scene" that just might blow our minds. Hear the duo reveal all in the video below!
