Peter Dinklage is joining the cast of “X-Men: Days of Future Past.”
Director Bryan Singer announced the news via Twitter on Wednesday, writing, “Officially like to welcome #PeterDinklage from #GameOfThrones to #XMEN #DaysofFuturePast Very very excited!"
There’s no word yet on which Marvel character the “Game of Thrones” star will play in the “First Class” sequel, which is expected to alternate between present day and a dystopian future.
As Entertainment Weekly notes, the 43-year-old actor might be playing Puck or MODOK. Both mutant characters are known for being strong yet short in stature.
Ian McKellen, Patrick Stewart, Michael Fassbender, James McAvoy, Jennifer Lawrence and Nicholas Hoult have all signed on to reprise their respective roles in “X-Men: Days of Future Past.” The film is expected to hit theaters in July 2014.
the monsters were near me so some bridge fun was created....we had too throw some excitment in....
we were waiting alllll day for this one....2 fones...script janine in left hand...lmao....
makes me wanna see it even more... terrific actor...one of my faves
but its gets harder and harder all the time....i will support him but it grows more difficult.
Loved him since I saw him in The Station Agent.
Idiots make fun of someone's name.
He's an actor. Judge him on his work as an actor, not his name or how funny you think it sounds. Besides I think the name Snipes sounds funny.
Say, now that you mention it, he looks like a mutant
Peter Dinklage? I couldn't make up a funnier name than that!
How about Peter Dangles?
or Harry Peter Jakov?
I hope it's not Puck. Such a goofy character.
Remember: "there are no small roles, only small actors."
Think about it.
What's with the hair? He looks like an oompa-loompa.
Thats for game of thrones I'm sure. That or he's going to be a hobbit in the next movie.
The guy is an EXCELLENT actor. Hope he gets a decent non-elf, jester role. He delivers.
Yes, excellent actor! Love him!!
Ohhhhh, you're an ANGRY elf!
Go Ahead, Call me an elf one more time.
call me elf one more time!
turn the battery up. your hacked into fake conversations...do you now gets this by now.
AS LONG AS THEY DON'T HAVE HIM BEATING UP YOU KNOW THE IMPOSSIBLE BEAT UP HOLLYWOOD
KEEP IT REAL.....
i vote termination whoever it is.
thats her business
Hopefully, he will play Puck. MODOK isn't a mutant. He's usually the leader of AIM, bad PhD. having thugs that fight Iron Man and Avengers associated heroes. Rarely does AIM take interest in mutant affairs.
BUSINESS AS FKING USUAL....
OH YEAH THE MIDGET FROM UNDERDOG !!
I fell in love with him while watching the first movie I saw him in,"The Station Agent".
HE never disappoints no matter how bad the MOVIE may be... Just saw him as a drunk,angry Frenchman in "TipToes",a movie that went straight to video. It's a GREAT movie, about how a "Tall" man keeps his little people family hidden from his fiance. She meets them and then falls in love with the whole family and the LP community. Awesome movie!
Oh it's an R movie-not for kids! I didn't know LPs could party so hearty!
I know..I love him too! I've seen the station agent...but not the other you mentioned...will need to get it! So looking forward to the new season of Game of thrones...I've finished the books..so we'll see how closely the series follows them..Nice to meet you!
no banging tonight? how come girl.
He is a great actor. Height does not matter when you are a great artist. All of you who dont recognize a true talent are... shall we say....height challenged in your mental capacities.
He ia brilliant. I would watch any movie he acted in.
hahahaha.. he said dink!!
Impin' ain't easy
She could care less–what is right for the network is what counts.
Once again the commentary proves how very many ways humans can be small, referencing nothing at all to do with mere feet and inches.
don't you guy want too memory munch her right up with that photoshoot.
don't you guys just wasnt too memory munch that right up..
This guy is the Boss!
Puck was teh AWESOMESAUCE! But he will more than likely be MODOK.
don't compliment the CAT...its pig.....don't run anything that's how we get too sauking
If this cat was six feet tall, he'd OWN Hollywood.
Midgets are cool because they can sleep in a dresser drawer. Or they can dress up like Cupid on balentine's day. They are awesome.
LOL He's a little midget. I love midgets. They are so funny.
NO WE AREN'T, ack ack ack!
OMG! I've got a wart on my snorlax!
He's a great actor unfortunately restricted to certain roles by his size.
Snorlax! GET BACK IN YOUR POKEBALL!
Oh good, more liberal tripe from the Hollywood spin machine.
Here's a thought, if you don't like it, don't watch it. Problem solved.
