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.

Is Fergie warming up for the pressure that comes with choosing a baby name? The singer and wife to actor Josh Duhamel is now officially Fergie Duhamel, having changed her name from Stacy Ann Ferguson, TMZ reports . And why not? When was the last time anyone thought of her as "Stacy"? The Black-Eyed Peas member started the process last month with a court filing and ended it Friday with a hearing, going through the same process Ron Artest used when he became Metta World Peace and Chaz Bono employed when he changed his name from Chastity Bono - though Chaz included a request for a gender change as well.

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)

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.

CAN MERYL STREEP dance? Can Pierce Brosnan sing? Who cares? The reviews for "Mamma Mia!" may be mixed, but the film version of the Broadway musical is a smashing mash-up of design ideas. At Casa Donna, the Grecian getaway where the breezy summer romance unfolds, the clotheslines and guest rooms are dressed in fabulous fabrics: white cotton with bold accents in blue and red, sun-faded floral and stripe prints, bright folk patterns and embroideries from the Mediterranean and points east.
