Variety reports that Crowe will play Javert, the obsessed policeman who is on the trail of Jackman's bread-stealing do-gooder Jean Valjean. Don't steal bread, man!
The film will debut on Dec. 12, 2012, with shooting expected to start at the beginning of next year (prior to Jackman's moving onto The Wolverine).
As for those who are asking if Crowe can sing, let us not forget that he's also in a band called Russell Crowe & The Ordinary Fear God (formerly known as 30 Odd Foot of Grunts).
