@Ladybirdplane: I think Raúl Esparza has the strength and the vulnerability to play Jean Valjean.
Juan Carlos Garza Segovia: Raul Esparza

Four-time Tony Award nominee Raúl Esparza was last seen on Broadway in the short-lived musical Leap of Faith. The actor, who recently appeared in City Center Encores! The Cradle Will Rock, is another ideal choice for the role of Jean Valjean, having received acclaim for his roles in the Broadway productions of Taboo, Company, The Homecoming and Speed-the-Plow.
