The film's start date was just around the corner, and there were still some substantial gaps in the cast. Several cast members have been falling into line recently, however, and Moviehole.net is reporting that at least one more part has been safely filled.
The latest addition to the ever-expanding cast is Peter Dinklage (The Station Agent) as Trumpkin the Dwarf. Dinklage will play a leader in the resistance to King Miraz and supporter of Prince Caspian X as the true king. The cast list on NarniaFans.com also lists Vincent Grass as Doctor Cornelius and Alicia Borrachero as Queen Purnaprsmia. Ben Barnes will play Caspian and William Moseley (Peter), Anna Popplewell (Susan), Skandar Keynes (Edmund) and Georgie Henley (Lucy) will all be returning as the Pevensie clan. (Liam Neeson will also back as the furry Jesus figure Aslan). Although, this will probably be the last we see of Mosely and Popplewell, since their characters are getting a little long in the tooth for Narnia. Shooting was set to begin this month; so if Andrew Adamson wants to keep to his schedule, casting is going to have to be completed sooner rather than later.
