Crispin Glover (Beowulf) has signed on to play the Knave of Hearts in Tim Burton’s Alice in Wonderland at Walt Disney Pictures.
Glover joins Mia Wasikowska as Alice and a cast that includes Johnny Depp, Anne Hathaway and Helena Bonham Carter. Burton is using a combination of live action and performance-capture technology to tell the Lewis Carroll story.
The APA-repped Glover is no stranger to performance-capture technology: He worked in the medium for “Beowulf.”
In “Alice,” the Knave of Hearts is put on trial for stealing the Queen of Hearts’ tarts and is defended by Alice.
