In a page torn from the book of nightmares I'd love to have comes news that Sexy Beast star Ian McShane – who took a turn at playing Blackbeard in the recently released Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides – has been cast as a dwarf in Universal's retelling of the fair princess tale, Snow White and the Huntsman. Director Rupert Sanders' twist to the story is that the Huntsman – who will be played by Thor star Chris Hemsworth – befriends and mentors the banished maiden who he was originally ordered to kill by the jealous queen (Charlize Theron). Kristen Stewart will be playing the part of Snow White, a casting choice which seemed to divide people into two camps: no way and hmmm … maybe.
Ian McShane, Snow White and the Huntsman
Ian McShane is a great choice.....And Kristen Stewart will do an amazing job!
It will be a real shame if they 'disneyfy' this film. The choice of Snow White is suspect enough to put me off the film. Keep it real and populate the cast with 'real' actors. Please!

"Welcome to the party, pal."
"I am serious... and don't call me Shirley."
"When am I gonna learn how to punch?"
"These go to eleven."
"Benjamin, have you ever been severely beaten about the face & neck?"
"Just keep swimming, swimming, swimming."
"You're gonna need a bigger boat."
"Jessica's got cable."
