Just over a month until cast change. You would have thought the Javert/JVJ choices woulld have leaked somewhere by now..

So Dan Koek tweeted this:


Daniel Koek@dankoek28m

First day of @lesmisofficial rehearsals tomorrow... i'm relying on @niallsheehy to break the ice with some kind of inappropriate joke! #lol



But earlier today Theatre Spy tweeted this:


Musical Theatre News@TheatreSpy

5h

Daniel Koek Joining Les Miserables http://blog.musicaltheatrenews.com/2013/05/daniel-koek-joining-les-miserables.html

Which seems to imply that he's only doing 1 day per week until Sep when he MAY be taking over full time.  I don't know how valid this musical theatre news blog is but there is still no news of main JVJ and nothing about Javert.  
Very odd....thoughts?

That blog is fairly accurate most of the time, and its been reported in the press that he was doing one show per week. Its odd that new cast contracts are only until sept. It is odd the majority of leading roles havent leaked yet  

Thats the first ive heard about him taking over full time in september, which i hope isnt true

I liked him in South Pacific, but he seems all wrong for JVJ, has he got the voice for it?  I don't want him to be full time JVJ in Sep, lets get someone different but with good MT credentials as I'm not convinced by some of the main roles

He was awful in wss but ok in south pacific, but mainly as the role doesnt require much acting. He doesnt seem to have any control in his voice, no light or shade, he just belts it out and he really cant act. He does seem to see himself as the next joj, ramin, matt rawle etc so hopefully maybe he has worked on the acting side of things.

Ooooo Matt Rawle, now that would be a good choice; how did I not think of him.  I do see what you are getting at with DK in SP as there isnt a lot to act

Alfonso Casado tweeted tonight that he's looking forward to starting rehearsals tomorrow-but with whom? It seems very odd that they have taken so long (auditions began in March)and have obviously decided that homegrown talent isn't what they want.

Ethan Bradshaw, Carolina Gregory, Rosanna Bates, Leo Roberts, Jenny O'Leary, Rob Houchen and James Gant are all joining the cast.
Only information I know on roles of these is that James Gant will be 1st cover Javert.
