Peter Dinklage Sizes Up For ‘R’ Rated Paramount Comedy

1 Submitted by on Fri, 11 October 2013, 12:00

It comes as no surprise that Peter Dinklage is rather small in stature, but what he lacks in height he more than makes up for in his acting ability. The Game of Thrones star remains a pretty hot commodity in Hollywood and Paramount has taken notice by picking up an R-rated comedy to which Dinklage is attached to star.

The untitled pitched comedy will be written by Andrew Dodge who recently worked on Jason Bateman’s directorial debut Bad Words. The story centers around Dinklage’s character who tells people that he in fact a leprechaun. The tone of the film is said to be similar to Bad Santa, meaning that it will be suitably dirty but end on a more heartwarming note.

I’m pretty intrigued by this project as I love Dinklage in Game of Thrones and have been waiting somewhat patiently for the long delayed/shelved Knights of Badassdom. I only recently became aware of Bateman’s film Bad Words so I look forward to checking that out to get a glimpse into Dodge’s work as a writer. Granted a lot could change before a script is actually completed, but as it stands this all adds up to something I believe could be pretty hysterical. Look forward to seeing it all come together.

Do you think Dinklage could pull off an R-rated comedy? Seriously, where is Knights of Badassdom? Have you seen Bateman’s film Bad Words? Sound off in the comments below!

  • If the Comedy is smart, I think Peter Dinklage can pull it off. I think he can pull off anything really.
