X-Men: Peter Dinklage 'Not Playing CGI Character'
Game Of Thrones star won't be computer-generated in Marvel movie...
Peter Dinklage will not be playing a computer-generated character in the forthcoming superhero sequel X-Men: Days Of Future Past, director Bryan Singer has revealed.
The Game Of Thrones actor was announced as having joined the cast of the forthcoming Marvel Studios project last week, and is believed to be playing the film's main baddie.
And now filmmaker Singer has been elaborating on his role in an interview with IGN.
"He's not going to be a CGI character," he explained. "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."
It has been speculated that P-Dink could be playing Bolivar Trask - the creator of the Sentinel mutant-hunting robots.
