Youngest Jean Valjean Ever in Broadway's Les Miserables - Easter Bonnet 2015
Opting to skew younger in casting, Les Misérables set out to find a new Jean Valjean and landed with a star-in-the-making performance of "The Confrontation" by 13-year-old Joshua Colley, who stunned the audience in his vocal duel with current Javert understudy John Rapson.

Gaten Matarazzo, 11 years old, and Josh Colley, who is 12, currently alternate the role. (READ MORE)

I've liked even less the tyke Gavroche, who taunts the enemy, ferrets out spies and is generally a Dickensian scamp. The child actors playing him always seemed to be too cutesy and desperate for attention. But Joshua Colley actually keeps his performance grounded and believable and anything but an outtake from Oliver! It's almost impossible to predict who will make the transition from child to adult actor -- especially based on a relatively small part -- but I won't be half surprised to be praising Colley a decade from now.
