Today, Tom Hooper stops by the studio to sit down with Larry Mantle and discuss the making of his new film “Les Miserables,” and why he chose to undertake such an ambitious project. The film has been positively received thus far, and won three Golden Globes: Best Comedy or Musical, Best Supporting Actress and Best Actor in a Comedy or Musical.

Some critics predict this steam will provide momentum for the film to make a splash at the Academy Awards. Hooper’s last film, “The King’s Speech,” took home Best Picture in 2010. Will he grab the brass ring again this year? What did you think of the film adaptation of this legendary musical?
