When Game of Thrones star Peter Dinklage joined the cast of X-Men: Days of Future Past last week, there was speculation that he will play Puck, Wolverine's Canadian drinking buddy and member of the superhero team Alpha Flight. Director Bryan Singer recently shot down the Puck rumor, and speculation that the dwarf actor will portray an all CGI character.
Peter Dinklage is not playing Puck or a CGI character in X-Men: Days of Future Past
"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."
So, now that we know Peter Dinklage isn't playing Puck, or an all-CGI character, who do you think he's playing?
X-Men: Days of Future Past comes to theaters July 18th, 2014 and stars James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Rose Byrne, Jennifer Lawrence, Nicholas Hoult, Patrick Stewart, Ian McKellen, Hugh Jackman. The film is directed by Bryan Singer.
