Crispin Glover Joins Alice in Wonderland


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.
