Peter Dinklage Lands Part in X-Men Days Of Future Past

Emmy-winning Game Of Thrones star Peter Dinklage (Tyrion Lannister) has landed himself a role in X-Men: Days Of Future Past.

Director Bryan Singer tweeted, “”Officially like to welcome #PeterDinklage from #GameOfThrones to #XMEN #DaysofFuturePast Very very excited!”

As are we. Dinklage is great. We’ve loved him since he was by far the best thing about the short-lived Threshold.

No news yet on who he’ll be playing. It’s difficult not to typecast him and suggest that be a shoo-in for Alpha Flight mutant Puck (a superhero of restricted height), but wouldn’t it be great if he was cast as, oh, let‘s say Cable or Forge for the sake of argument, and nobody made any mention of his height? Not that any of those characters were in the original comic story “Days Of Future Past”, but that doesn’t preclude them.
