While the search is still ongoing for the huntsman, Universal has found their prince for the upcoming "Snow White and the Huntsman."

Deadline reveals that up-and-comer Sam Claflin will bat eyes and tousle his hair at Kristen Stewart in the fairy tale film. The actor has already been featured in the series "The Pillars of Earth," but is set to make a his big-screen splash opposite Johnny Depp in "Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides." He's also lined up the medieval sorcery flick "The Seventh Son" with Jeff Bridges and Julianne Moore. But if we have a word of advice for Claflin, it's that he better start diversifying soon or he'll fall into the trap of the same-ish tentpole roles that nearly swallowed up Orlando Bloom.

Anyway, the big question remaining about the film is who will take on the titular, manly role. Last we heard, Chris Hemsworth was the latest of many possible candidates for the part that has so far seen Viggo Mortensen and Hugh Jackman both turn down the project. Charlize Theron is still on board as the evil queen and the film will go in front of cameras later this year for a December 21, 2012 release.
