Brian d'Arcy James
@rracheljean: Brian d'Arcy James! He would be incredible. There is no one I'd love to see in this role more than him!
Ana Galang: I can't believe I'm going to be the first person the suggest Brian d'Arcy James, yet here I am. And Raúl Esparza for Javert. How have neither of these been mentioned?

Two-time Tony Award nominee Brian d'Arcy James, who received nods for his work in Shrek the Musical and Sweet Smell of Success, has also been seen on Broadway in Next to Normal, Time Stands Still, The Apple Tree, Titanic, Carousel and many more. The versatile actor would be well suited for the iconic role of Jean Valjean in the upcoming Broadway revival.
