Taylor Swift Not Cast In ‘Les Miserables’ After All

Most of you agreed with us that Taylor Swift would be extremely miscast playing Eponine in the upcoming film adaptation of Les Miserables. But it appears that the country singer was either replaced, or perhaps never even accepted the role. Broadway World reports that British actress Samantha Barks (not Swift) will portray Eponine in the movie musical. Barks previously played the role in last year’s West End live production, as well as in the 25th Anniversary Concert filmed at the O2. See Samantha perform “A Little Fall Of Rain” alongside Nick Jonas below, and tell us if Taylor would have done a better job with the song. (We’ll save you some time: she wouldn’t have.)

Congrats, Samantha! You may just be Hollywood’s newest It Girl! Let us know if you’d still prefer to see Taylor on the silver screen on Facebook, Twitter or in the comments.
