Sean Bean cast as Snow White's father in Julia Roberts fairy tale

Sean Bean is in talks to join the as-yet-untitled fairy-tale adventure starring Julia Roberts as the Evil Queen, according to sources close to the production. The English actor’s deal is nearly finished, and he will join the production already underway in Montreal. Lily Collins plays the title character in the movie (due March 16), while The Social Network‘s Armie Hammer co-stars as the prince caught between them as the innocent Snow White is manipulated and menaced by her wicked stepmother.

Where Bean’s character fits in is anyone’s guess, though smart money is on him not surviving to see this war between the fairest-of-them-all play out in its entirety. What’s with this guy and troubled patres familias?

    Tell me he doesn’t die!!!!

    • tracy bluth

      I think at this point any time Sean Bean is cast in anything we should assume his character is going to die.

      • Johnification

        I was literally about to write the same thing. An epic death, no less.

      • Kate

        Speaking of, there’s a fantastically epic Sean Bean Death Reel video now on youtube.

    • Wynter

      Snow White’s dad never makes to the end… I bet Sean has done more death scenes than most of Hollywood

      • ash

        Yeah he’s the King isn’t he? And he dies and that’s why the Snow Queen tries to kill Snow White, because she’s the real heir to the throne. Oh well. No one does dying as well as Sean Bean.

    • Caiti

      good god, Sean Bean is hot. I mean come on, is there anyone who can make evil so dang sexy?

    • Jason

      Ha – that was my first thought – how far into the movie will it be until he dies?

    • Liz Lemon

      I’m guessing he does. Snow White’s dad isn’t around in the books is he?

  • you suck

    seriously, dude?! read this story from imdb news. your spoiler’s still up on there.

  • abadstroller

    Sean Bean rocks–whatever he is in!

    Well, thank God he’s joining the one that DOESN’T have Kristen Stewart. I love Sean Bean, and it would kill me to go have to attend a Stewart movie just to see him.

    • Aaron

      Shut up, dumbass. Sean Bean is the man but this will suck balls. Who would believe he’s married to Julia Roberts? Dude.

      • Benlinus

        Maybe he marries her when he’s drunk and then offs him self when he wakes up next to her.

      • marlon

        he would be lucky to be movie-married to julia roberts. julia is very attractive. but yeah, in real life it would never happen because julia dates more goodlooking men. but this is a movie called snow white. SNOW WHITE. a movie.

      • Jason

        Lest we forget Julia Roberts was married to Lyle Lovett…

      • demented

        Aaron = rabid Kristen “Boy-Body” Stewart fan.

      • Kat

        Women like Sean Bean.

  • Jake

    Sean Bean was Awesome before GoT and he still is after…the show ended its first season. lol cant wait to see this!

  • Jesse

    I absolutely love Sean Bean, but I really wish I could see him in a role where he doesn’t play a royal who meets an untimely demise. :)

  • WillFerrellStinks

    Bean has moved ahead of Tex Cobb for getting killed off the most times in anything he’s in by having a longer career and being in more features to be killed off in !

  • cultural ignoramous

    who’ Sean Bean?

    • demented


  • Chris

    Sean Bean & Nicolas Cage have a lot in common when it comes to death in every film they play in …

    • Bethany

      Please PLEASE! Don’t even use those two men in the same sentence. Even for such a simple comparison! Sean Bean is on so much higher of a level of acting than that other name you dared even mention!

  • Valerie

    Awesome! This will make it “See Sean Bean die 22 times” with a warning of 22 spoilers..

    If I didn’t think the dad would die already, now that Sean’s been cast, I KNOW he will die.

    Love him.. Just wish he’d stay alive sometimes

  • DT

    he wont die and that will be the most shocking part of the film

  • seon

    lol at least he didn’t die in “Silent Hill”

  • GGthyen

    this is really getting monotonous… before I’ll ever watch another “Bean” movie again, I will find out if he survives in the end…if not…I won’t have missed anything….even if you do so well:.aren’t you getting tired of dying Mr. Bean????

    Its like you learn my mind! You seem to grasp so much about this, such as you wrote the book in it or something. I think that you can do with a few percent to power the message house a bit, but instead of that, that is wonderful blog. A fantastic read. I’ll definitely be back.
