It seems like there isn’t a day that goes by without there being another piece of X-Men news. And in pretty much every single case, the news has been positive. In today’s mutant casting news, returning director Bryan Singer announced that Game of Thrones star Peter Dinklage would be joining what is already an enormously starry cast.
Following on from X-Men: First Class, the sequel Days of Future Past involves multiple timelines, which naturally led to the cast of the original trilogy being brought on board: Hugh Jackman, Patrick Stewart, Ellen Page and Anna Paquin are just the tip of the iceberg in this cavalcade of mutants! Although he’ll be surrounded by some of the biggest names in cinema, Dinklage is in no danger of being being lost in the crowd. His scene stealing performance in Game of Thrones has shown him to be one of the most charismatic actors working today, proving that he’s capable of shining even in the largest of ensemble casts.
Dinklage returns in Game of Thrones this April. If you haven’t seen the first two series yet, check it out here on blinkbox and see why he’s become one of Hollywood’s most exciting new stars.
