Peter Dinklage

After Gone Girl star Rosamund Pike, fresh off an Oscar nomination for her performance in the David Fincher film, joined Christian Bale in the forthcoming adaptation of John D. MacDonald's novel The Deep Blue Good-by, two more supporting stars have come aboard as well. The Wrap reports "Game of Thrones" favorite Peter Dinklage will take a role in the film along with Nicola Peltz, who starred in Transformers: Age of Extinction. In the film, Bale is playing as Travis McGee, a self-described “salvage consultant” who recovers others’ property for a fee and along the way gets into trouble fighting bad guys and wooing women.

In this particular story, we'll be introduced to McGee (a recurring character in MacDonald's books), the man who's a knight errant and wary of credit cards, retirement benefits, political parties, mortgages, and television. He only works when his cash runs out and his rule is simple: he'll help you find whatever was taken from you, as long as he can keep half. However, it will be up to fans of the book to decipher who Dinklage and Peltz are playing in the film, because as of now, their specific characters in the story haven't been revealed. The Wolverine and Walk the Line director James Mangold will be at the helm. Stay tuned.

Dinklage should take better roles. This could be great and I understand Dinklage's weariness in not being typecast, but I think he should really try and get something amazing.

A step at a time. I agree, he's a great actor... who also happens to be a Little Person. Build up his resume w/ non-goofy roles & a not-specifically-LP role (such as Xmen: DOFP & this upcoming flick), and I'm sure he'll manage to land main-leads or at least continue to have strong supporting roles where he's at least as memorable as the "leads".
