We don't know about you, but we're super excited to see Les Misérables in cinemas this Christmas Day, not only to watch the epic battle between Jackman's criminal hero Jean Valjean and Crowe's villainous lawman Inspector Javert, but to also gaze at the actors' impressive musical talents.

Hugh Jackman is an incredibly skilled performer, having found his calling in musical theatre in the mid-'90s and winning a Tony Award for his portrayal of Peter Allen in the hit Broadway musical The Boy from Oz. Meanwhile, Russell Crowe began his showbiz career as a musician in the '80s and was talented enough to score a hit single in New Zealand with "I Just Want To Be Like Marlon Brando," under the stage name Rus Le Roq. True story.

Want to know who's trained in opera, ballet and tap? Or who's studied the art of clowning around and lion taming? Then roll up, roll up and flip through to discover Hollywood's unexpected talents...
