The acting pedigree for Tim Burton’s Alice in Wonderland project is already pretty stellar with eternal collaborators Helena Bonham Carter and Johnny Depp alongside Anne Hathaway, Michael Sheen and newcomer Mia Wasikowska. Now, the film has its next creepy-weird cast member on the job with Crispin Glover joining as the Knave of Hearts.

The Hollywood Reporter is Hollywood Reporting that the veteran actor will play the deck-member that gets caught and put on trail for stealing the Queen of Hearts tarts.

This is a really great choice, although it’s tough to say how large the part is. Glover has a great range, he can be as weird as Burton needs, and he’s done performance-capture acting before – and last time it was in 3D for Beowulf. This time, it’s in 2D so it’ll be that much easier – 1D easier.

Burton and company are keeping good pace with the casting, and its no doubt that it’ll continue considering the types of personalities that the spooky director tends to attract. It’s currently set for a March 2010 release date, so get prepared for another full year of rumors and hype before this bad boy gets released. Personally, I can only hope that Glover comes to Alice’s defense at some points and tells the Queen, “Get your damned… hands… off her, man.”

Back to the Future reference? Don’t mind if I do.
