Six More Dwarves Join ‘Snow White’
, Eddie Izzard
, Toby Jones
and Ray Winstone
have joined Ian McShane
as dwarves in the upcoming Kristen Stewart-Chris Hemsworth action-fantasy Snow White and the Huntsman
. Hoskins will play a blind dwarf named Constantine while Izzard will play the biggest and burliest dwarf of the crew, Tiberius. Jones will take on the role of timid dwarf Claudius. McShane joined the cast to play Caesar, the leader of the dwarves. Snow White and the Huntsman
takes a departure from the classic Disney tale and instead turns the dwarves into warriors who must protect Stewart’s Snow White from Hemsworth’s Huntsman and the Evil Queen, played by Charlize Theron
and Stephen Graham
were confirmed as the fifth and sixth dwarves to join the crew earlier today. Winston and Marsan will play twin dwarves, Trajan and Hadrian, respectively while Graham will play the angry dwarf, Nero.
Late last year when Universal first announced this movie, we knew it was going to be a different take than the classic adaptation that Relativity Media was working on. Meanwhile, Disney is still plotting a similar adaption entitled Snow and the Seven, in which the dwarves are warriors in a story that takes place in 1800s China. It will be interesting to see how the Disney dwarf warriors differ from Universal’s. That been said, what are your thoughts on the Huntsman casting?
