Taylor Swift is said to have been among those in the running for the role of Eponine in director Tom Hooper's adaptation of "Les Miserables," and now reports say that she's been offered the part.
If earlier whispers were true, that would mean Swift edged out competition from Lea Michele, Scarlett Johansson and Evan Rachel Wood.
BroadwayWorld.com suggests that she's expected to sign on for the role, and that official cast announcements should arrive soon.
Another possible cast member is Amanda Seyfried, who is said to have been offered the role of Cosette. Anne Hathaway, Hugh Jackman, Helena Bonham Carter and Russell Crowe are already on board.
