Crispin Glover has joined the cast of Tim Burton‘s “Alice in Wonderland,” taking on the role of The Knave Of Hearts.
Glover will appear along with Johnny Depp (Mad Hatter), Anne Hathaway (White Queen), Helena Bonham Carter (Red Queen) and Mia Wasikowska (Alice) in the Disney adaptation of the Lewis Carroll tale.
British actors Michael Sheen and Matt Lucas have already signed up for the movie, part of which is being filmed in Plymouth.
In the novel, Glover’s character is put on trial for stealing The Queen Of Hearts’s tarts, however, Alice (Wasikowska) comes to his defence.
Burton is using a combination of live action and performance-capture technology in his adaptation.
“Alice in Wonderland” is scheduled for release in 2010.
