Sacha Baron Cohen has signed up to star in musical 'Les Miserables', alongside Anne Hathaway and Hugh Jackman.
The 'Hugo' actor - who is best known for comedy roles in films including 'Borat: Cultural Learnings of America for Make Benefit Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan' and 'Borat' - ' will play Monsieur Thenardier in the forthcoming musical, which will be directed by Oscar-winning filmmaker Tom Hooper, according to The Sun.
Tom - who won an Academy Award last year for his work on 'The King's Speech' - recently confessed the movie would be shot in 2-D instead of 3-D, although he had flirted with the idea.
He said: "I can definitely announce it's good old-fashioned 2-D. I did test 3-D and I was very tempted - I think it is a very interesting new form."
Sacha has a number of films out in 2012, including comedy 'The Dictator' and a part in Quentin Tarantino's 'Django Unchained'.
