‘The Departed’ Star Ray Winstone Set To Play Final Dwarf In ‘Snow White And The Huntsman’
  |  @   |  

Just yesterday we found ourselves wondering if the new Universal Pictures take on the Snow White fairy tale, titled Snow White and the Huntsman, could cast known actors in all seven dwarf roles.

The reports yesterday were that Ian McShane (Deadwood, Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides) had been cast as the lead dwarf, Caesar, and that Oscar nominee Bob Hoskins (Who Framed Roger Rabbit, Enemy at the Gates), Eddie Izzard (Shadow of the Vampire, Cars 2), Toby Jones (Harry Potter, Captain America: The First Avenger), Stephen Graham (Boardwalk Empire, Snatch), and Eddie Marsan (Sherlock Holmes, V for Vendetta) were all in talks for other dwarf roles.

This left one more, which has now been filled.

The wonderfully intimidating talents of Ray Winstone have been chosen for the role of Trajan, and the actor now joins some of the others in negotiations for a part. Winstone’s character would be the twin brother of Marsan’s Hadrian character, while Hoskins plays a blind dwarf named Constantine, Izzard will be Tiberius, the “biggest and burliest of the crew,” Jones is an easily scared dwarf named Claudius, and Graham an “angry-looking” dwarf named Nero. As you might of noticed, all of the dwarfs””who are warriors in this version of the tale, not workers””are named for ancient Roman emperors.

The movie stars Kristen Stewart (The Twilight Saga, Panic Room) as Snow White, who’s ordered killed by her evil stepmother (Charlize Theron) after escaping. The huntsman sent to kill her will be played by Chris Hemsworth (Thor, Star Trek), who ultimately ends up joining the princess and these seven warrior dwarfs and training her how to fight.

Winstone is perhaps best known for his role as Frank Costello’s (Jack Nicholson) right-hand-man, Mr. French, in Martin Scorsese’s The Departed. He’s also appeared in The Proposition, Beowulf, Indiana Jones and the Crystal Skull, and Edge of Darkness, to name a few.
