Peter Dinklage will join the cast of the upcoming X-Men: Days of Future Past, director Bryan Singer tweeted yesterday: "Officially like to welcome #PeterDinklage from #GameOfThrones to #XMEN #DaysofFuturePast Very very excited!"

Known for playing Tyrion Lannister on the hit HBO series, there's no word on what role Dinklage will play in the upcoming superhero movie. Days of Future Past will reportedly bring together cast members from 2011's X-Men: First Class as well as those who appeared in the "original series" X-Men trilogy released between 2000-06.

Song Stories

“Long Walk Home”

Bruce Springsteen | 2007

When the subject of this mournful song returns home, he hardly recognizes his town. Springsteen told Rolling Stone the alienation the man feels is a metaphor for life in a politically altered post-9/11 America. “Who would have ever thought we’d live in a country without habeas corpus?” he said. “That’s Orwellian. That’s what political hysteria is about and how effective it is. I felt it in myself. You get frightened for your family, for your home. And you realize how countries can move way off course, very far from democratic ideals.”
