Do we have Peter Dinklage?

Recommended Posts

At least that appears to be the case according to this site: [url="http://www.geekshow.us/content/television-content/television-news/dinklage-cast-in-hbos-a-game-of-thrones/"]http://www.geekshow.us/content/television-...ame-of-thrones/[/url]

Is this true? I very much hope it is.

Hmmm....interesting find pablonohablo. Of course, it could just be a rumour, especially since no sources are cited by the author of the article. But I hope it's true as well.

There is a source link at the bottom of the article. The AICN report, which is just a rumor. Why this website reported it like it was a done deal, when even the insider that the rumor stems from said it wasn't set in stone yet is beyond me.

Yeah, whoever wrote this blog post apparently didn't notice the question marks in the title of the AICN article they linked at the bottom.

The picture of Dinklage wearing the crown and sword I think comes from his role as Richard III he did on stage in New York a few years back (which I saw - he was very good, most of the rest of that production wasn't so good though).

I just got done watching Threshold. Peter Dinklage is by far hands down the best choice possible for Tyrion. His character in threshold has a lot of in common with Tyrion brilliant, funny, charismatic, and a weakness for alcohol and hookers

Her is an interesting interview with him from when he was doing Threshold.

This is just speculation, not facts.
But if we can have Peter Dinklage as Tyrion- I'm pleased.
He is The Hand and more...

He'd be an excellent choice. Anyone with doubts should go look at his performance in Prince Caspian from last year.

Yes, but that would require sitting through [i]Prince Caspian[/i]. :bang:

My only concern is his age. Tyrion is in his mid to late 20s where as Peter is coming up on 40 this year.

I've never seen Dinklage in anything before, so those clips were a bit of a revelation. He seems to have a good range, as those roles all seemed pretty different from one another.

Im not too concerned here... but he's going to have to show me a solid english accent for it to work...

why does he have to have a solid english accent?
is it ever stated that the people in the series have this accent?
i dont think applying real world accents would be fitting, i would be fine with pseudo-real world accents, like transatlantic, neutral american with maybe subtle british words here and there. i know there are other topics on this, but i think as long as the actor is capable of carrying a scene, the accent wont bother me, as long as everyone stays consistant

"neutral american"... hm.

Canadian (excluding the stereotypical Torontonian) accents are actually the closest of the english language to the dictionary. Just if anyone wants real neutrality and tolerance, look to the Canucks.

But I would prefer mostly english-ish accents, i suppose. Variation would make it interesting though.

If I'm not mistaken, he had a bit of an accent in Prince Caspian. It wasn't great, but not horrible either.

I've never pictured Tyrion - or any of the Lannisters - with English accents. They seem the most "American" to me. It all about the power and money for them.

That depends on which dictionary you're using, Kingthlayer. There is no standard English pronunciation; we don't have an Academy.
