February 22, 2013   Ali   News Comments Off on Les Mis Cast Singing ‘One Day More’ & ‘Dream’ At Academy Awards

Broadway World gives us a little insight to the tribute to musicals at Sunday’s awards show … and what the cast of Les Mis will be singing!

All of the major players from Cameron Mackintosh’s feature film adaptation of Claude-Michel Schonberg/Alain Boublil/Herbert Kretzmer’s LES MISERABLES will be giving voice to not one, but two iconic anthems on Sunday’s 85th Annual Academy Awards telecast.

Hugh Jackman, Russell Crowe, Amanda Seyfried, Samantha Barks, Aaron Tveit, Helena Bonham Carter, Sacha Baron Cohen and Eddie Redmayne will join together to sing the Act One Finale “One Day More”, while Anne Hathaway will sing some of “I Dreamed A Dream”.

The recent Broadway revival of How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying’s Rob Ashford will stage the medley musical number, having previously collaborated with this year’s Oscar producing team of Craig Zadan and Neil Meron on many endeavors in the past.

The music-heavy broadcast – the most music-focused telecast in history, according to the producers – will also feature Barbra Streisand singing “The Way We Were” in tribute to Marvin Hamlisch, as well as Shirley Bassey and Adele performing Bond themes as part of a James Bond 50th Anniversary tribute. Additionally, Tony Award winner Catherine Zeta-Jones and Queen Latifah are expected to join in song once more (they previously duetted on the 2002 Oscar show) in a CHICAGO tribute and Jennifer Hudson is expected to lend her Academy Award-winning cords to a DREAMGIRLS tune.

Host Seth MacFarlane will perform throughout, as well, joining Broadway regular Kristin Chenoweth for a grand finale performance at the close of the telecast.

February 22, 2013   Ali   Articles & Interviews Comments Off on Eddie Redmayne on His Low-Key Les Mis Prep and the Human Sacrifice His Brother Was Willing to Make for the Film

Vanity Fair.com did this great feature on Eddie …

Much has been made about the extreme preparation that Anne Hathaway and Hugh Jackman underwent for Tom Hooper’s Les Misérables adaptation. Hathaway shed 25 pounds off her already thin frame, sent her new husband away to achieve the novel’s eponymous misery, and agreed to have her real hair chopped off for authenticity during a musical sequence. Jackman literally sang while bench pressing, quit coffee, consumed up to seven liters of water a day, insisted on flying with a washcloth over his face to keep his vocal cords moisturized, and subjected himself to regular ice baths. So to what inhuman lengths did Eddie Redmayne go to play Marius in the film?

“I did jack shit!,” the British actor joked to us last night at a party to celebrate Les Mis, co-hosted by Vanity Fair and Chrysler, at Eveleigh restaurant in West Hollywood. “There was a moment [on set] when I was sitting with Tom during rehearsal, and we were waiting for Hugh and a few other people. I asked where they were, and he said they were at the gym. He said, ‘You’re the leading man! Why aren’t you in the gym?’ I said, ‘Because I get to wear a costume! And I don’t have go through the hideousness of being emaciated. Why aren’t you in the gym?”

Not to say that the actor—and one of his immediate family members— wasn’t obsessed with the production. “My older brother, James, and I— we had no sort of formal musical background, but when we were little he would sing Jean Valjean and I would sing Javert,” the Tony winner told us. “When I was auditioning for the part, I cared very much about getting [Marius]. But James cared even more than me! He was sending me constant text messages. ‘Have you heard?’ ‘What’s the latest?’ ‘Any news?’”

James was so dedicated to his brother’s project that he even proposed a human sacrifice to Tom Hooper. “James even offered his newborn baby to be baby Cosette in the movie. Literally! He went up to Tom [Hooper] and said, ‘Have my child.’ Tom was like, ‘Uh, there is no baby Cosette in the film. Thanks.”

In the end, Hooper’s dismissal probably worked out best for Eddie’s niece. To create a realistically miserable 19th-century Parisian environment, Hooper reportedly left the stage doors open all night to make sure it was bitterly cold on set, let fish rot for odorous authenticity, and filled a man-made sewer with sludge for Jackman and Redmayne to wade through during Valjean’s escape scene.

“That was the worst day . . . filming the scene in which I’m in a sewer, being dragged by Hugh,” Redmayne recalls. “We were swimming through shit for a day and a half. But I’m not allowed to complain, because whatever I was going through, Hugh had to carry me through it.”

Asked how they made light of the situation—slogging through sewage that production designer Eve Stewart has revealed was in fact facial mud— Redmayne revealed: “Well, the fact that we were singing while covered in shit was pretty funny. The constant singing was quite humorous himself.”

After speaking to Amanda Seyfried—who told us that the extent of her weight-loss preparations for the film was “abstaining from alcohol and foods that were too creamy and sugary . . . nothing close to what Anne did,” we discussed the extreme circumstances of the shoot with Hooper. “Well, we were in a closed-door environment. I tried to make it seem as real as I could,” the Oscar-winning filmmaker said, before cheekily adding that it was not nearly as chilly or smelly as it would have been had the cast filmed on location in a real fish market or an actual sewer. As eager as Hooper had been to make the shoot feel real, however, even he agreed that Hathaway and Jackman went to ridiculous extremes. Of the two, he said that Jackman went further, “not drinking anything for 36 hours so he could get that sunken-cheek-and-pallor effect. That was a bit much. I was so scared for him that I even tried to force him to take a sip of water.”

February 21, 2013   Ali   Articles & Interviews, Events Comments Off on 2013 Oscars: Why Les Misérables’ Eddie Redmayne Thinks He Won’t Be Invited Back

E!Online got a report for Eddie on why he thinks after Sunday’s ceremony he will never be invited back to the Oscars!

Les Misérables star Eddie Redmaybe is nervous—and for good reason.

He’s performing in the Oscars’ musical tribute on Sunday!

“I know we did live singing in the movie, but this is different,” the handsome Brit told me last night at Vanity Fair and Chrysler’s party for Les Mis director Tom Hooper at Eveleigh restaurant on the Sunset Strip. “At least when were filming and if you messed up, you can do it again.

“This is my first time at the Oscars, but it’s probably my last,” Redmayne cracked.

Don’t worry, Eddie—you’re going to be great!
