In the week since it broke, the identity of Peter Dinklage in X-Men: Days of Future Past has caused much online fodder. Speculation (Not telling if it was legitimate rumor or just fan-forum suggestion) pegged him playing a motion-capture/CG character. Because hey, why hire a great actor like Dinklage in a straight role where his dwarfism is irrelevant? An insulting prospect when you think about it.
Bryan Singer set the record straight speaking to IGN Movies during his Jack the Giant Slayer press-rounds:
"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."
Good taste prevails. Thanks for reminding us you have that, Bryan.
