Izzard, Hoskins take dwarf roles?

Eddie Izzard could play the biggest dwarf Tiberius in the film

Eddie Izzard and Bob Hoskins are reportedly in talks to play dwarves in Snow White.

Toby Jones, Eddie Marsan and Steven Graham are also in negotiations to sign up to Rupert Sanders' big-screen adaptation of the classic fairytale, the Heat Vision blog said.

Eddie is tipped to play Tiberius, the biggest and burliest dwarf of the crew, with Bob as blind dwarf Constantine and Toby as timid dwarf Claudius.

They would join Ian McShane, who is also apparently waiting for the part of Caesar, the leader of the dwarves.

Kristen Stewart is already on board as the eponymous heroine, with Charlize Theron as her evil stepmother and Thor's Chris Hemsworth as the huntsman who trains the princess to fight back.

Eddie will next be heard as part of the Cars 2 voice cast, while Toby will be seen in The Adventures Of Tintin and Captain America: The First Avenger alongside Dominic Cooper.

You should be justifiably proud of your progress. It isn't easy to break a bad habit, but you've managed to do so. A perverse side of your personality may tempt you to fall back on the old ways, just to give yourself another challenge. Ignore these impulses. Channel your energy in a positive direction instead. Learning to make clothes, furniture or jewellery will be a great use of your creative ability. You'll be especially successful if you use old, discarded materials in your work.More
