Peter Dinklage was recently confirmed as the villain of X-Men: Days of Future Past (as opposed to previous rumors and speculations that has the actor cast as Puck). This time around, Bryan Singer himself has confirmed Dinklage’s role as the big bad, and shared a little about what we can expect while also shooting down rumors that Dinklage will be playing a CGI character:
“He’s not going to be a CGI character,” confirms Singer. “He’ll be himself. Not that he’ll be playing Peter Dinklage, he’ll be playing this character. It’s not a shy character. He’s just such a phenomenal actor.”
“I’m a huge fan of Peter’s and of Game Of Thrones. He was my first choice and I was really happy [about the casting]. It’s so funny to talk to him because he does that impeccable accent [on Game Of Thrones] and then you talk to him and he’s this guy from New Jersey.”
X-Men: Days Of Future Past will open in the UK on 18 July 2014.
