Newbie Sam Claflin is Kristen Stewart’s Prince in ‘Snow White and the Huntsman’

Sam ClaflinFor a guy who can almost count his screen credits on one hand, Sam Claflin sure is getting some serious offers these days. He’s starring in Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides alongside Johnny Depp and Geoffrey Rush, he was just offered a role in The Seventh Son with Jeff Bridges and Julianne Moore and now he’s set to play the Prince to Kristen Stewart’s hopefully not-at-all-emo Snow White in Universal’s Snow White and the Huntsman. (That’s the one with Charlize Theron, not to be confused with the Julia Roberts one.)

He seems pretty princely, so I think it work out just fine, but the studio offered Thor star Chris Hemsworth the huntsman role, and if I were a prince, I’d be pretty worried about a big, muscular hunk like Hemsworth galavanting around the woods with my lady. Maybe Claflin’s prince will luck out and some less-intimidating dude will escort Snow White through the forest so he doesn’t feel so inadequate. That’s what the story’s really about, right? Right? Oh, it’s a fantasy movie about a girl who’s so pretty she can’t stand it? Well, I guess I’ll just shut up then.

Celebrity Editor Kelsea Stahler was born in a pile of dirt. Okay, she was actually born in an old Naval hospital in San Diego, which then became a pile of dirt and remained as such for a number of years before becoming a parking lot perfectly sized for circus tents, and finally a museum. She eventually left San Diego to attend New York University, where she studied Journalism and English literature — two less-than profitable liberal arts degrees about which guidance counselors warned her. Against all odds, she now resides in Brooklyn, where she fights the constant fear that the locals will soon discover she isn’t quite cool enough to live there, and makes a living writing absurd, pop culture features about Batman, zombies, vampires, funny people, and Ron Swanson.
