Peter Dinklage voices Captain Gutt in Ice Age 4

Peter Dinklage to voice Captain Gutt

Somehow my little birds fell asleep on the job and neglected to inform me that Peter Dinklage is voicing the character of Captain Gutt in the animated movie, Ice Age 4: Continental Drift. I had to find out in Variety like a commoner, and IMDb also beat me to it.

Captain Gutt is the simian pirate leader who does baddie things, giving Dinklage a chance to play the villain once again, as in his roles as Dr. Simon Barsinister in Underdog and on stage as Richard III. Dinklage also voices Gutt in the animated short, Scrat’s Continental Crack-up Part 2, shown in theatres as a trailer during Alvin and the Chipmunks: Chipwrecked back in November, 2011. As you can see, Gutt is clearly a Gigantopithecus with bad teeth.

The full-length Ice Age movie starring Peter Dinklage as Captain Gutt will be released on July 13, 2012.

Peter Dinklage to star in “A Case of You”

News broke yesterday that Peter Dinklage will star in a new indie film, A Case of You, alongside Justin Long (Alvin and the Chipmunks, The Mac Guy in commercials) and Evan Rachel Wood (Mildred Pierce, Thirteen). Justin Long is both writing and producing, with Kat Coiro (L!fe Happens) directing. Also in the cast is Arizona’s own Busy Philipps, reuniting with Dinklage since their planned TV show Testing Bob fell through back in 2005. Keir O’Donnell (Lost, Sons of Anarchy) will also appear.

No character assignments have been announced, but the story revolves around impressing a girl online and requires a string of lies to keep up appearances. You know, purely a fictional storyline that could only happen in a movie.

Exactly 8 Weeks Away…

Only 8 more weeks until the premiere of Season 2 of Game of Thrones on HBO! This season roughly correlates to A Clash of Kings, the second book of George R R Martin’s A Song of Ice and Fire fantasy series. Parts are also included from the third book, Storm of Swords, as some storylines were pulled in early from season one.

The wait is nearly over! Tune in on Sunday, April 1, 2012 for the second season of award-winning show Game of Thrones on HBO.
