You might not know the name Eddie Redmayne just yet, but after his appearance in the upcoming 'My Week With Marilyn
' and now word that he's been cast in 'Les Miserables,' you should probably Google the kid. Deadline reports that Redmayne will play Marius in the Tom Hooper-directed version of 'Les Miserables' opposite Hugh Jackman, Russell Crowe and Anne Hathaway. Those three plus Michelle Williams and Kenneth Branagh as co-stars early in his career? Not bad, Eddie. Not bad at all.
Redmayne won a Tony award for his performance in 'Red'; he's also set to star in 'Richard II' on stage.
