According to the New York Post, all four of the actresses have auditioned for Hooper and, a source told the paper, each star brought her own unique appeal to the musical, based on Victor Hugo's iconic novel.

Lea Michele, who stars on hit TV show "Glee," has been in "Les Miserables" before, on Broadway, where she played Young Cosette.

The Working Title and Universal film is full of stars including Anne Hathaway, Hugh Jackman, Helena Bonham Carter, Russell Crowe and Eddie Redmayne.
