Peter Dinklage To Play a Leprechaun in Next Project

By Amirose Eisenbach October 10, 2013

The wonderful Peter Dinklage is best known as the brilliant and sassy Imp (a.k.a Tyrion Lannister) on HBO's "Game of Thrones". Before that however, he had a steady career in various films, which as definitely increased since the medieviel show has been such a huge success.

Dinklage will next been seen as Boliver Trask in Bryan Singer's "X-Men: Days of Future Past". Wasting no time however, it appears that his next project will be taking advantage of his small frame and that Dinklage will be portraying a leprechaun.

Andrew Dodge, who recently penned the screenplay for Jason Bateman's upcoming comedy "Bad Words", is writing the screenplay for the untitled comedy for Paramount. While few plot details have been revealed, other than that Dinklage's character is claiming to be a leprechaun, the tone of the film is said to be similar to Terry Zwigoff's "Bad Santa".

No other cast members or a director have been announced, but we'll keep you posted as the story develops.
