Ian McShane To Play A Dwarf

IAN MCSHANE210“And my axe!” – no wait that’s a different dwarf.

Ian McShane (recently seeing stroking his beard in Pirates Of The Caribbean 4) has been cast as a dwarf in the forthcoming Snow White And The Huntsman.

Heat Vision Blog reports that Lovejoy will be playing Caesar, the leader of the dwarves. Presumably, he’s going to be shrunk a la Gimli and the Hobbits from Lord Of The Rings via some CGI trickery. The production, which features Twilight‘s Kristen Stewart as the fairest one of all and Thor‘s Chris Hemsworth as the hunky huntsman is due to start filming in August and will be Rupert Sanders’ first film.

We’ll have to see how it fares against Tarsem Singh’s The Brothers Grimm: Snow White which is due to be released a few months before Snow White And The Hunstman hits our screens on June 1 2012.
