We still don't know much about who Peter Dinklage will actually be playing in Bryan Singer's X-Men: Days of Future Past. There's been rumors that he could be playing the dwarf member of Alpha Flight, Puck. There are also rumors that he could be playing a villain in the movie, possibly Boliver Trask, the man who created the Sentinels. I've also seen people speculate that he could be playing M.O.D.O.K. or The Watcher, which never really made sense to me in the first place because they really aren't X-Men villains.
One thing we know for sure now is that the character won't be CGI. Here's what Singer had to say in a recent interview with IGN.
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 as of right now the one rumor that actually makes sense is the one that has him playing Boliver Trask. Are there any other characters that you think he could be playing in the movie?
X-Men: Days of Future Past is set to be released on July 18th, 2014.
