    Not a comic reader, so don't know much about Trask but...is he a "small person" (no clue what the PC term is so i'll just stick with that)? Obviously with camera work you can do magic with size (see The Lord of the Rings), but even though I'm happy as hell to see Dinklage in this role my 1st thought was how are they going to physically present him on screen. Sure no matter the case he'll bring his usual incredible acting talents to the part.

          @the-movieghost I saw interveiw in which Benioff had stated that if he got to this point in the books he feels that it would make a good full series (if it didnt get picked up again - which I dont see happening). But if he had been looking at this point as a possible ending for the tv series then it just might be epic.

            As do I @skywise, as do I. For some odd reason, and this could be totally unfounded on my part, I've gotten the feeling that it won't get its due attention... Maybe I'm just weird.

                      Now, I forget, are you a book reader and show watcher, or just the latter @skywise?

                        @the-movieghost Of course. Tyrion is a fantastic character and he plays him with such style and grace that I dont even see Dinklage, only Tyrion.

                          he is the best actor in 'Game of thrones', so hopefully he will bring that level of workmanship to the role in this, personally X-men and their acting staff have always been hit and miss with me.

                                      Have you been following him in Game of Thrones @skywise? He's been consistently great as Tyrion Lannister.

                                        Great actor. Very interested to see how they portray him in this film.

                                        This is old news tho.
