With everyone looking to see whether or not Halle Berry, January Jones, or Alan Cumming would jump on Bryan Singer‘s epic mutant pig-pile, X-Men: Days Of Future Past, we forgot to consider that new actors might get in the mix. And so, we were met with a mix of surprise and excitement when Singer announced that Game Of Thrones star Peter Dinklage would be joining the prequel/sequel thingy.
Singer tweeted, “Officially like to welcome #PeterDinklage from #GameOfThrones to #XMEN #DaysofFuturePast Very very excited!” And that’s all we know. No word on which role Dinklage will play. Deadline reports that Dinklage will play a key role, while others speculate he’ll play Puck from Marvel’s Alpha Flight series or a rebooted version of Toad. Which isn’t very nice, you guys. How about a CIA agent or brilliant scientist?
Sheesh. Next, there’ll be rumors he’s playing Wolverine’s Mini-Me.
