Earlier this month TWIST reported that Taylor Swift had been in the running to star in the movie version of Les Miserables -- well, unfortunately TWIST now can confirm that Tay didn't score the part! Instead the role went to British Broadway star, Samantha Barks -- name sound familiar? Well it should! Samantha dated Nick Jonas while they both acted in the UK version of the play last year. In fact, Samantha even played Eponine -- the part she'll play in the movie version. And she was definitely excited to hear the news. "Most incredible moment of my life!" she tweeted after getting the call! Good Luck, Samantha!
What do you think, ladies: Would you have rather seen Taylor get the part? Tell us below!
