Prince Caspian’s publicist, Ernie Malik, has confirmed for us that Reepicheep and Miraz have not yet been cast and we are still awaiting word on Doctor Cornelius.

We are able to announce that the role of Trumpkin the Dwarf will be played by Peter Dinklage (Elf, The Station Agent). Mr Dinklage is 4′ 5″ tall (1.35 metres).

Excerpt from Chapter 3 of Prince Caspian:
Like most Dwarfs he was very stocky and deep-chested. He would have been about three feet high if he had been standing up, and an immense beard and whiskers of coarse red hair left little of his face to be seen except a beak-like nose and twinkling black eyes.
