Recently we saw Ian McShane play the villainous pirate Captain Black Beard in Disney’s Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides, but now the actor has signed on to play the head dwarf in Universal’s Snow White and the Huntsman.
McShane will play Caesar, the leader of the dwarfs. He has joined Kristen Stewart, Charlize Theron, Sam Claflin and Chris Hemsworth, which is scheduled to hit theaters on June 1, 2012.
The project, being directed by Rupert Sanders, is a revisionist take on the fairy tale and features Snow White as a princess who escapes her evil stepmother with the help of a huntsman who was to have killed her but now trains the princess to survive and fight back. (Source)
