Peter Dinklage Talks X-MEN: DAYS OF FUTURE PAST, the Great Cast of Actors, Script Changes During Production, Comic-Con, and More

Peter-Dinklage-X-Men-Days-of-Future-Past-interview

Opening this weekend is director Bryan Singer’s X-Men: Days of Future Past.  As most of you know, Days of Future Past finds Wolverine (Hugh Jackman) having his consciousness sent back to 1973 in order to help Professor X (James McAvoy), Magneto (Michael Fassbender), and the rest of the X-Men: First Class crew stop the rise of the Sentinels, giant robots programmed to exterminate mutants.  The film also takes place in the future, so we’re going to see the original X-Men cast and what will happen if Wolverine fails.  I caught a screening last week and am very happy to report the film is great.  It’s loaded with awesome character moments and tons of mutant action.  You’re all going to love it.  For more on the film, watch these five clips and nine minutes of behind-the-scenes footage, and click here for all of our coverage.

At the New York City press day, I landed a video interview with Peter Dinklage.  He talked about immediately saying yes when he was offered the role, how the film is filled with great actors, script changes during production, his experience at last year’s Comic-Con promoting X-Men and Game of Thrones, and more.  Hit the jump to watch.

And if you missed my video interviews with Hugh Jackman, Michael Fassbender and James McAvoy, or screenwriter/producer Simon Kinberg, click the links.
