Tarsem's 'Snow White' Gets Its Seven Little People

With all the talk of release date battles and sudden, overriding presence of Huntsmen, I haven't even considered the possibility any of the Snow White films in development were still bothering to put dwarves in this thing. Well, it turns out at least one of them will, as Relativity Media has added a septet to play the seven dwarves in their tentatively-titled Brothers Grimm: Snow White. Director Tarsem Singh-- avoiding the overhead and discriminatory practices of computer-shrinking standard-sized people, à la Lord of the Rings--has hired all-natural crew of small people to fill the parts, casting Danny Woodburn (Mickey), Martin Klebba (Pirates of the Caribbean), Mark Povinelli (Water for Elephants), Joey Gnoffo (The Benchwarmers), Sebastian Saraceno, Ronald Lee Clark (both Pit Bosses), and Jordan Prentice (Harold & Kumar Go to White Castle) as the stocky miners. Relativity's press release says this completes the final cast for the film, leaving a confused Verne Troyer to sit in his scooter and quietly tell himself he was excluded because he's on the little upper tier with Warwick Davis and Peter Dinklage, and who are we to tell him otherwise?
