Stage and screen star Patrick Wilson, who appeared on Broadway in The Full Monty, Oklahoma!, Barefoot in the Park and All My Sons, recently revealed that he will return to Broadway in spring 2014. wondered: What production and role would you like to see Wilson play on Broadway? polled our readers via Facebook and Twitter asking them to share their choices for roles they'd like to see Wilson take on in his Broadway return.

Here are some reader responses followed by our own commentary.

Jeannette Quintana: Les Mis
Laura Beth Dailey: Les Miserables
Ryan McClure: I feel like it'll definitely be Les Mis since he said "spring 2014."
Chauncy McButterbeans: Les Miserables?
KatieAnneLockie: Les Miserables. He's got a great voice and his Phantom work proves he could do Les Mis
Ladybirdplane: I want @patrickwilson73 as Javert. He has the strength and the stamina to do it.

The international hit musical Les Misérables is set to return to New York City for its third Broadway outing beginning March 1, 2014. Casting has not been announced for the 25th-anniversary, re-imagined production of Alain Boublil and Claude-Michel Schönberg's Tony Award-winning musical. Wilson would make an ideal Jean Valjean (originated by Colm Wilkinson) or his tireless pursuer Javert (originated on Broadway by Terrence Mann). Either way he's cast, audiences would have the chance to hear him sing "Bring Him Home" or "Stars."
