Wilkinson, who originated the role of Jean Valjean, will play the Bishop, a role he also played in the Oscar-winning film adaptation. As the Bishop, according to press notes, "he will pass the torch, or the silver candlesticks that his character passes on to Jean Valjean, to Ramin Karimloo, the young Canadian star who has won unanimous raves for his portrayal of Valjean – a role he will reprise in the upcoming new Broadway production."
