Everyone Shut Up Peter Dinklage Might Be In ‘X-Men: Days of Future Past’

UPDATE: And it’s official.

It’s been a while since I’ve written a post about Peter Dinklage which I’d like to say is because I respected his wishes from his Rolling Stone interview where he talks about not wanting his pure, condensed awesome to be a spectacle, but really it’s because he moved to upstate New York to get away from the paparazzi so there’s barely any pics of him. Regardless, diligent reader Trixie has alerted me that Bryan Singer wants to cast him in X-Men: Days of Future Past and if it’s not as a retconned Wolverine I will burn the goddamn Shire to the ground and, wow, that was out of line. (But, seriously, to the fucking ground.) Deadline reports:

I hear he’s bringing in Game Of Thrones star Peter Dinklage into the mix for a key role. Dinklage, who won the Emmy for his work as Tyrion Lannister, arguably the only sane member of that sordid royal clan, also shone in Martin McDonagh’s In Bruges. [Ed. Note: Except he wasn’t. Dwarfist! – SW]

And now for the part where I drink myself into accepting that he’s probably just going to be Puck, and then drink some more because I just admitted I know who that is and will definitely die alone.
