As the battle of the Snow White's heats up, we can exclusively reveal the latest addition to the cast of The Brothers Grimm: Snow White.

That would be the Snow White starring Julia Roberts as the evil queen, Lily Collins as Snow White and Armie Hammer as Prince Andrew Alcott, the only actor names that have been released thus far.

So who's the lucky fella joining such an easy-on-the-eyes trio?

Robert Emms—not to be confused with Roberts, Emma.

"Relativity just finalized the deal with Robert Emms to join the cast," a source tells us exclusively of the 5-foot, 11-inch and fairly unknown actor. "He will play Prince Andrew Alcott's valet/sidekick, ‘Renbock.' "

And apparently, it's a hefty job being a prince's right hand man!

"It's a pretty major role in the story," the source reveals. "He has many  interactions with the dwarves and with the evil queen, and the character's loyalty to the prince is definitely tested."

Emms' rep didn't return our request for comment.

But most interesting, despite the title of the film, our source tells us that Julia Robert's queen will be getting much more screen time than little Lily.

"Julia Roberts' character is very much the lead and focal point," adds our expert source.

The film, which will be directed by Tarsem Singh, goes into production this summer in Montreal.
