Just when you thought you could not get any more excited for X-Men: Days of Future Past…
Peter Dinklage – the Emmy-winning actor who has sky-rocketed to fame as Tyrion Lannister on HBO’s Game of Thrones – has joined the cast of this wildly anticipated blockbuster.
Details on the star’s role are unknown (we presume mutant dwarf Puck), but director Bryan Singer verified the news himself yesterday via Twitter:
“Officially like to welcome #PeterDinklage from #GameOfThrones to #XMEN #DaysofFuturePast Very very excited!”
The movie will bring back favorites from past installments – such as James McAvoy, Jennifer Lawrence, Michael Fassbender, Hugh Jackman, Patrick Stewart, Ian McKellen, Anna Paquin, Ellen Page and Shawn Ashmore – and will reportedly alternate between the 20th and 21st centuries.
On the small screen, meanwhile, Dinklage and company return for Game of Thrones Season 3 on March 31.
