If there’s one actor that is universally loved by everyone, its has to be Game of Thrones star Peter Dinklage. He’s not only a talented actor who has starred in everything from Elf to Nip/Tuck and most recently Game of Thrones, but he’s probably one of the best human beings you’ll ever meet.
He’s also not afraid to make light of his height, and is using it to his advantage in his next career move. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Dinklage has signed on to star in an upcoming R-rated comedy that centers around his character trying to convince people that he’s a real life leprechaun.
The project is described as being deep in R-rated territory but wrapped around an emotional heart. Sources say it plays off of Dinklage’s size, as the story centers around a man who tells people he is a true leprechaun.
This isn’t the first time Dinklage has made light of his height, as one of the first times we saw Dinklage was in the Will Ferrel comedy Elf where he played a famous author who infamously launched himself Will Ferrell’s character after being mistaken for an elf.
You don’t have to wait for Dinklage to play a real life leprechaun to catch him in a movie as he’s st to star as the villain in this summer’s X-Men: Days of Future Past.
