No, I disagree -- too much singing from a very imperfect singing voice. Plus, he's a tall leading man -- Littlechap is a nebbishy and more of a character guy. They should stop taking away character parts from people who can do them justice and like they've been doing with recent Seymours in "Little Shop of Horrors". Harold Hill is also a character role (with a romantic edge), done originally by Robert Preston, known at the time, besides his stage work, from his films where he was a character actor usually cast as the villain. I agree with your post below where I don't particularly see Jackman's present casting (or that of Sutton Foster) as being ideal. Dick van Dyke seemed terrific casting years ago, and yet he was worn out and lacking in energy and failed in the role in one of the more disappointing evenings I've ever spent in the theater, since he seemed to be so suited to the role.
