Game of Thrones star Peter Dinklage to play foulmouthed leprechaun in new comedy

It’s not gonna be one for the whole family.

TYRION LANNISTER FROM Game of Thrones is set to join a so-far untitled comedy where he’ll apparently play a man who attempts to convince people that he’s a real life leprechaun.

The project, picked up by Paramount, is said to be an r-rated ‘adult’ comedy with ‘an emotional heart’, according to Hollywood Reporter.

It will be similar to the tone of Bad Santa and Bad Words–a film about a profanity ridden spelling bee–and will see the same writer joining Dinklage’s leprechaun project, Andrew Dodge.

Dinklage has shown himself perfectly qualified for the role, having played a dwarf in Chronicles of Narnia, showed his perfect comedic timing in Death of a Funeral, all mixed with Lannister’s Game of Throne’s depravity.

Let’s hope it’s a step up from ‘Leprechaun’, for everyones sake:
