Peter Dinklage has decided to parlay all that Station Agent and Game of Thrones acclaim to play a crass fake leprechaun. I could go on, but we’ve all got the Bad Santa concept in our head, and that’s probably close enough, so let’s talk about some other stuff, no?
In order to make lemonade of this news, let’s find some good here. The script is written by Andrew Dodge, who just wrote the film Bad Words, about profane spelling bee contestants. Huh. That’s interesting. And a somewhat thin premise, but it got the attention of Jason Reitman, who has also tolerated screenwriting by Diablo Cody, so maybe this will just be obnoxious and not terrible.
There we go. That’s the optimism I could muster from this news. Have a good day.
