First look at Peter Dinklage and Jamie Dornan in HBO’s My Dinner with Hervé, Mireille Enos and more join cast

24 June 2017 12:33 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Game of Thrones isn’t the only project Peter Dinklage is lending his talents to over at HBO, as the network has unveiled a first-look image of the actor in My Dinner With Hervé.

The upcoming TV movie takes a look at the life of Fantasy Island and The Man with the Golden Gun star Hervé Villechaize (described as “the world’s most famous gun-toting dwarf” by HBO), who took his own life in 1993. Check out the image, which features co-star Jamie Dornan (50 Shades of Grey) as struggling writer Danny Tate alongside Dinklage’s Villechaize, below…

Being perhaps the most accomplished and celebrated dwarf actor of all time makes Dinklage a good choice to fill Villechaize’s shoes, although it’s worth noting that Dinklage isn’t of Filipino and English descent like his counterpart.

My Dinner with Hervé is set during “one wild night” in Los Angeles, just days before Villechaize’s suicide, »

Their upcoming original movie, My Dinner With Herv&#233, is going to center on Herv&#233 Villechaize, once the most famous dwarf in the world, as played by Peter Dinklage, who is arguably the most famous dwarf in the world now. HBO has released the first photo from My Dinner With Herv&#233, and it looks appropriately strange.

The premium cable network released the image from My Dinner with Herve today, giving us our first look at the Game of Thrones star as Herv&#233 Villechaize. The image also features Fifty Shades of Grey star Jamie Dornan hanging out in a white car, which looks like it could be filled with cocaine.

Newswire: Peter Dinklage to play Fantasy Island’s Hervé Villechaize in HBO film

9 May 2017 5:28 PM, PDT | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

According to Variety, Peter Dinklage from Game Of Thrones and Jamie Dornan from Fifty Shades Of Grey are set to star in an HBO original movie called My Dinner With Hervé. The movie is about an unlikely friendship between a struggling journalist and actor Hervé Villechaize—best known as Tattoo from Fantasy Island—with the two of them bonding during a “wild night” in Los Angeles. The film seems to be (at least somewhat) based on real-life interviews that Villechaize gave with writer Sacha Gervasi, who will write and direct My Dinner With Hervé for HBO.

Also, the wild night My Dinner With Hervé centers around will apparently have “life-changing consequences” for both men, and though the Variety story doesn’t spoil what those consequences are, a basic knowledge of Villechaize’s life suggests that this movie might actually be about something other than a wild night in Los Angeles »
