Strange as this may sound, I wasn’t really convinced of the scope of "X-Men: Days of Future Past" until Wednesday’s news that "Game of Thrones" star Peter Dinklage has been cast in an unconfirmed role, per director Bryan Singer’s Twitter. Speculation immediately abounded over whom the diminutive Dinklage could be playing, whether the obvious (Alpha Flight mutant Puck), unconventional (maniacal madman Arcade), or just plain obscure (Bantum, the sidekick to Trevor Fitzroy who... oh, I’ve already lost the thread).
It’s a solid move, obviously, because anyone who’s seen "Game of Thrones" or "The Station Agent" knows the dramatic chops that Dinklage is capable of bringing. But it’s inspiring in another way, because Dinklage represents the first significant actor brought onto the project who hasn’t been previously affiliated with the X-Men.
