Taylor Swift, Lea Michele, Scarlett Johansson and Evan Rachel Wood are all in the running for the highly-coveted role of Eponine in Oscar-winning director Tom Hooper's big-screen version of "Les Miserables," sources said.
A source close to the film confirmed that the four actors have all auditioned for the role.
Another said that Michele "knocked it out of the park" when the "Glee" star -- who played Young Cosette in the Broadway show -- recently performed for "The King's Speech" director.
But it will be a tough choice, because each star has her own magic ingredient for the musical based on Victor Hugo's novel.
"Scarlett brings acting ability, and she can really sing," a source said. "Evan Rachel Wood brings her indie cred," while casting Swift would mark a major move over to Hollywood films for the pop star.
