Who Should Be in the Les Misérables Movie?

So far, Tom Hooper's movie adaptation of the musical Les Misérables only appears to have one star confirmed: Hugh Jackman, who has pushed back filming on the Wolverine sequel so that he'll be free to star as Jean Valjean this winter. We've heard rumors that Russell Crowe might play his nemesis, Javert, and now the Wrap's industry-tracking site fingers The King's Speech co-stars Geoffrey Rush and Helena Bonham Carter as the Thenardiers (though the site also suggests that Hayden Panettiere, Lucy Hale, and Miranda Cosgrove are in the mix for Cosette and Eponine, so ... grain of salt?). With all these roles still left to be claimed, it's time to start fantasy casting. Who would you like to see in Les Miz? (And also, who had they better not cast?)
