Great likeness, you did a really good job with this :) Like a few dozen people have already said, Philip Quast IS Javert to me! Norm Lewis did a good job and probably worked better with Alfie Boe than Quast did with Wilkinson, but he still can't match him vocally! More than voice, it's the demeanor that Quast gets right.

What a fantastic portrayal of Javert. I particularly love all the textures in this drawing - the hair, the fabric of his clothes and his hat - so realistic. The expression on his face is spot on too (and the fact that it's Philip Quast just makes it even better). :)

I'm a big Quast fan too and tried really hard to get his scowl to look right. I'm glad you like the textures as well.


Thank you for the lovely comment!

A lot of my cast favorites are from the Original Broadway production.
Philip Quast is one of the exceptions. And this drawing does both the actor and the character justice.

I quite enjoy Terrence Mann but Quast is by far my favorite as well. I'm glad you think this turned out.

Phillip Quast was an awesome Javert esp. in his performance of "Stars". This is fantastic.

Agreed. Each time I rewatch or listen to a recording of Stars by Quast I'm still blown away by how well suited he is to the role. Thanks for having a look.

I agree. I sometimes try to rationalize my favoritism with the fact that I tend to like the actor I'm most familiar with or that I heard sing a role first. But then I think, "Forget it. We're talking about Philip Quast" and just let it go.

Exactly! Although I must say, Andrew Varela comes in as a very close second with Earl Carpenter close on his heels for third. But hey, I can just be content with the fact that there's so many fantastically amazing Javerts in the world.

I love Andrew Varela! I saw him as Javert last year. The Javerts I had seen live previously did a nice job but I didn't like them as much as I'd hoped to. But Varela's performance came damn close.

His Javert is absolute perfection, and he was such a sweetheart as well when I met him. He's the only Javert I've ever seen live, but he definitely surpassed everyone I've ever seen via concert video or youtube. Except Quast, whom he very nearly overtook for first. Hehe. In short, Andrew Varela is just made of 100% amazing.

Quast is my favorite as well. And I'm very resolute in my belief that Javert is not a villain. At the very least he's an antivillain, though I tend to think of him as a protagonist foil to Valjean. I think I could write a dissertation defending his character, but I won't. Anyway, my point is that no one should hesitate to show the poor guy some love.

With that said, even if he was the most despicable, unsympathetic villain imaginable, we'd still love him just for being played by Philip Quast.

Nope, Javert is not a villain, I agree with you! I have this theory that Victor Hugo's "bad guys" such as Javert or Frollo are not villains at all but rather very complex men who find themselves in difficult situations and they just can't cope...they are wonderfully human and I just love them!

And yeah, Philip Quast could make me love anyone!
