Hugh Jackman stalked Tom Hooper; Eddie Redmayne sent in an audition on his iPhone. In fact, according to the British actor, all of Hollywood "leapt out of the musical theater closet" to try to land a part in Hooper's adaptation of "Les Miserables. " Such was the discussion at The Envelope Screening Series for Universal Pictures' musical "Les Miserables. " The discussion also included actresses Anne Hathaway and Amanda Seyfried. Jackman admitted that once the stalking ended and he landed the part, he did have a brief moment of, "Oh, wow, now I've got to do it. " But for Hooper, spending three hours with Jackman auditioning gave the director the confidence to eliminate most of the script's dialogue in exchange for a sung-through musical.

Well, Anne Hathaway, that's one way to drum up interest in the French Revolution. Tom Hooper's "Les Miserables" saw its New York City premiere on Monday ahead of the musical's Christmas Day release, and star Hathaway forgot a rather important decoration: her underwear. In a black Tom Ford creation with a constructed back and dramatic slit, Annie had herself a wardrobe malfunction while climbing out of her car at the Ziegfeld Theatre: She revealed to photographers that she wasn't wearing any underwear.

Despite its epic title, writer-director-actor Mark Webber's sophomore filmmaking effort "The End of Love" (his first was 2008's "Explicit Ills") is an exceptionally intimate, human-scaled picture. It's also quite a special piece of work. Webber, known largely for his many indie film appearances ("For a Good Time, Call…," "The Hottest State"), stars in this poignant, semi-autobiographical tale of a recently widowed, underemployed actor, also named Mark, devoted to raising his energetic 2-year-old, Isaac (Webber's real-life son, Isaac Love)

Blake Shelton, Nick Offerman, Jimmy Fallon and writer Chris Tartaro are ... "The Chickeneers. " Things got a little egg-centric on the "Late Night with Jimmy Fallon" set Thursday when "The Voice" judge, "Parks & Rec" star, late-night host and TV writer performed their rendition of "Ho Hey!" by Grammy-nominated band the Lumineers. Dressed as chickens. Clucking their way through the whole song. No words, just clucks. Bock , bock and everything. The quartet was costumed as bright yellow fowl, a la Big Bird, and delivered a nearly straight-faced performance of the hit song in celebration of Easter this Sunday.
