The mustache screams Puck to me though I doubt he's playing him.

I guess we can have a black Trask and a white Trask.

Re: X-MEN: Days Of Future Past (Casting, Rumors, Pics till release)

@ Set Harth...I was referring to the World War II scenes. They reminded me of the Logan flashback from Origins. It's very well that they could be only addressing the pertinent parts of Origins that are apart of Logan's past, while "ignoring" all the other stuff that's irrelevant to their story. It would appear that the original direction that Aronofosky intended has changed, quite naturally, under Mangold.

I'm surprised that nobody has yet posted about the following photo, which seems to back up Admiral Young's theory:

Re: X-MEN: Days Of Future Past (Casting, Rumors, Pics till release)

Bolivar Trask is a person I've heard about while reading X-men comics, but I know very little about him. I do remember seeing a version in the 90's animated series, and...honestly, it would make no sense for Peter Dinklage to play him. Is it weird, or make sense, that Peter Dinklage would play him? I don't really care and its fine if thats what is happening, but I was under the impression that Trask was a normal sized guy (he was in the cartoon) so it seems a bit weird that Dinklage would be playing him.

Why? Is there an intrinsic about his height to the character?

I mean it's Peter fucking Dinklage ?

Do you actually like anything? I've never seen a post from you on any subject that's not a dig - is there nothing you get any joy from? nothing?

Re: X-MEN: Days Of Future Past (Casting, Rumors, Pics till release)

Hey, I never said it was a bad idea. Just so you know, I've made several positive posts about this movie, in this thread. All I was asking was if his casting made sense to people who knew more about the character. I don't personally care about his height, and I don't think its a bad thing in this situation. Now, if they recast Cyclops as Peter Dinklage, then I'd say it was stupid casting. It just seemed unusual to cast him as Trask, just based off the little I know about the character. My post was not meant to be negative, and looking at it its hard to see how someone could even take it that way, outside of just assuming I'm always mad/taking shots at everything, which just isn't true. Outside of JJ abrams and Nolan based Superhero movies I'm actually not all that negative in general (there is always exceptions, but those two things are really the only things that I tend to rant over). It was an innocent question about what people more knowledgeable about Trask than me thought about the casting.

Yeah, being unusually short doesn't disqualify Dinklage from playing Trask. That'd be just moronic. The bloke is clearly a great character actor and I look forward to seeing him in the role.

I was actually pleasantly surprised when it became apparent that Dinklage *wasn't* going to be playing a mutant. It actually feels appropriate that they've cast someone who's condition usually restricts them to playing fantasy type characters (aliens, goblins, miniature clones etc.) and given them a role that (presumably) has nothing to do with it. Given the themes of the X-Men franchise, I wonder if theyr'e making a point with this? Either way, bravo!

Re: X-MEN: Days Of Future Past (Casting, Rumors, Pics till release)

I'm fine with him in the role, I was just wondering if it was more than just casting a shorter person in an unusual role and actually was relevant to the character. He seems fairly popular (I've never seen him in anything, I checked his work on wikipedia) and I'm sure he'll do a good job with whatever he does. I'm just not that knowledgeable on Trask, so I was wondering if it had any special significance. Its fine if it doesn't.

There would be symbolism and motivation added to the character. Having someone of his size creating the huge Sentinels.

That would just back up the idea that Trask is involved in the film, which would be unsurprising for a DOFP adaptation. But it doesn't point specifically to Dinklage playing Trask.

If they reboot X-Men Dinklage should play Wolverine.
As for the Cyclops comment, what is so stupid about that idea? Are you saying a little person shouldn't play a heroic character like Cyclops?
Outside of JJ abrams and Nolan based Superhero movies I'm actually not all that negative in general (there is always exceptions, but those two things are really the only things that I tend to rant over).
