Peter Dinklage as Puck?

Game of Thrones actor Peter Dinklage has joined X-Men: Days of Future Past, revealed by director Bryan Singer As he promised, Singer continues to reveal his casting news on Twitter;

“Officially like to welcome #PeterDinklage from #GameOfThrones to #XMEN #DaysofFuturePast Very very excited!”

This seems to be a new trend. Yay Twitter! Dinklage’s role in the movie has yet to be officially revealed. But it’s not like he’s going to be playing Nightcrawler or Cyclops, let’s keep it real. If I was a betting Nerd, my Republic credits would be on him playing Puck, a dwarf member of Canada’s Alpha Flight and current member of Uncanny X -Force. He’s always been the fan favorite to play this role should it ever be brought to the big screen. It looks like he might get his chance.
