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.

  1. BJ

    Who would he be playing?

  2. socks

    He plays a guy who inherits a train station and then gets his by a car while walking from his train station to a local grocer. He then gets super powers and makes out with Michelle Williams. Seems legit.

  3. Someone tell Deadline THAT WAS NOT PETER DINKLAGE IN IN BRUGES.

    Idiots. Don’t they fact-check?

  4. Beer Baron

    He’s going to be “Puck”, not MTV’s Puck.

  5. They gave him a little part.

  6. Pussy will be eaten. That’s all.

  7. Maggie

    He’s not even in In Bruges.

    imo wolverine ftw!

  9. Some jackass on Twittter suggested he would be Puck, thereby opening the door to the inevitable Alpha Flight spinoff.

    I’m Canadian, and even I wouldn’t watch an Alpha Flight movie.

  10. To due his size he has the ability to hurt men at their most vulnerable area, crushing their balls. Also as aforementioned can impregnate women/eat carpet(unknown orgasm) before they even know he was there!

  11. Deacon Jones

    He’s going to star as Silver Surfer.

    Except he’s going to be riding his giant, chrome penis around instead.

  12. Him as Wolverine would like watching Yoda in a light saber duel.

    I’m down for this if they stick with the original, non-demonic origin. I doubt Dinklage would sign on if they didn’t, though, so I guess I’m down!

    A man is intrigued, yet preparing for disappointment.
