Literary Crushes

Obsess over Harry Potter, regale us with Fluffy's latest escapades, ask for advice on what colour to dye your hair, and continue the raging debate of Pirates vs. Ninjas -- whatever strikes your fancy.

For a change it tears me apart in a good, in a very very good way. I am obsessed :D

Their foreheads turn pale and dissolve in front of me,
And everyone, like a stream that flows into a sea,
Became completely lost in a dark immensity.

Well, apparently she wanted to, but was under contract with Disney to do "Princess Diaries 2" at the time instead. Tis unfortunate... but then again, if she had played Christine, we might not have gotten her as Fantine 8 years later (and the POTO movie might've ended up hurting her career due to Schumacher's general ineptitude). I think she and Hugh Jackman both dodged a bullet by not being in that film, really, though they would have undoubtedly been better than the people that were chosen.

And Ramin Karimloo hadn't played the Phantom onstage by that point (and was several years younger than Gerard Butler or Patrick Wilson), so I can kinda forgive them for not having him play the Phantom. Though he should have at least gotten to play Raoul. Then again, if he'd gotten a bigger role, it might have hurt his career too... so perhaps everything worked out for the best (especially since he got to play the Phantom in a far better filmed version of the musical later on). :mrgreen:

Well...yes I agree. Now I think, Karimloo would have been too young to play the Phantom in 2004, you know, being only 24 n'all. Oh, I wish the film had been made a) later and b) with a better director and cast.

Apparently, he wanted to audition for the Phantom but was busy with The Boy From Oz on Broadway when the film was being made. Since he won a Tony for that and probably wouldn't have gotten much recognition for a Schumacher-directed Phantom no matter how good he was, I think he made the right choice there.

I agree entirely. But at least we got the 25th anniversary concert!

I can't actually imagine Jackman as the Phantom....I don't know if I've ever seen him in a role that would require any similar characterisation.

And yes, regardless of the merits of the respective musicals, Phantom's 25th was a lot better than Les Mis' (though Les Mis wins on the post show stuff :D)

Jackman as Erik...no can't see it. Don't want to, to be honest. Butler's MOTN was bad enough.

And Earl Carpenter was in both of them. I do like him, he was my first/only Phantom and he was brilliant.
