Hugh Jackman looks awful with the full beard but hot in scenes without it, but I'm thrilled I'll get to see him sing in a movie!

Looks very well cast.......I really like Eddie Redmayne. Has a very boyish, innocent look. Was fabulous in Tess of the d'Ubervilles. That reminds me....I must watch Birdsong which is lurking around on the computer somewhere....

I don't like Eddie's looks, they kind of freak me out. Sorry :P

Looks worth watching! I've never read it or seen the show.

I think Eddie Redmayne is attractive - he is unusual looking, however. Hugh Jackman is a bit of alright, too! :D

Couldn't get the trailer to work but a still of Hugh came up on imdb, I agree about the beard and buzzcut though, not his best look. Looking forward to the singing though, he has a wonderful voice. I'm intrigued to hear Russell Crowe's singing voice too!

I must admit Eddie R doesn't do it for me either; he was good in Tess but he does look slightly odd! Different to the pretty boys/square-jawed heroes though and he's very watchable, although I didn't see Birdsong. He was good in Pillars of the Earth too.

I like Russell's singing voice, I have some of his music from his old band "30 Odd Foot of Grunts".
