Bryan Singer has been talking about X-Men: Days of Future Past, and in particular the recent casting of Peter Dinklage.
When the casting was announced, rumours began that Dinklage would be playing he diminutive Puck character, though speculation later suggested this would not be the case and he would instead be playing a CG-heavy character. But Singer – speaking to IGN – has suggested otherwise.
“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.”
X-Men: Days of Future Past is due for release on July 18 2014.
