Bryan Singer Gives Details On Peter Dinklage’s X-Men Character

My Spidey Sense Is Tingling


“He’s not going to be a CGI character. 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 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.” – Bryan Singer babbling on about X-Men: Days of Future Past to IGN.

Initially, fans guessed Dinklage would be playing Puck, then it was revealed he would actually be playing an antagonist. Now theories are pointing toward Bolivar Trask. Wouldn’t it have been great if Singer could have just given away the character name? No, that would have been too easy. At least he gave us our first look at the film!
