Peter Dinklage Joins “X-Men” Universe With Villainous Role

Peter Dinklage, known to Game of Thrones enthusiasts as the resourceful Tyrion Lannister, plays Dr. Trask, a scientist who becomes the biggest threat to the mutants (and eventually all of humanity) in X-Men: Days of Future Past.

“He really believes he is doing the right thing to save humankind,” said Dinklage, whose previous films include In Bruges and The Station Agent. “At the same time, in this time of the Vietnam War, one of the worst wars in our recent history – I guess they’re all really bad wars – he thinks this is an opportunity to bring the world together.”

To portray his 1970s based character, Dinklage didn’t have to dig too deep for his research. “I just saw some old pictures of my dad and his friends at the time, that’s where the look comes from,” joked the Emmy award winning actor.
