Peter Drunklage? No Relation.

Our very own Peter Dinklage appeared on a Saturday Night Live sketch on April 6th during the Weekend Update segment. During an interview with Drunk Uncle (a recurring SNL character) on the state of taxes, we see Drunk Uncle’s brother-in-law, Peter Drunklage, who shares a similar proclivity to alcohol consumption and political ranting, especially against immigrants.

Judging from various commentators over the internet, some think that Peter Drunklage reflects Peter Dinklage’s views on taxes, immigration, and the Republican party. The first rule of surviving the intellectual decline in a post-literate society is to never read comments on any news article or YouTube video. I can’t speak for Mr. Dinklage’s personal political views, but I would hope that most SNL viewers, at least, would understand the level of satire that goes on in each sketch. So before assuming that Peter Dinklage is showing his support for either the GOP or chronic alcoholism, just remember 1) he’s an actor and 2) it’s SNL.

In other news, great to see Peter Dinklage on SNL! Many folks are clamoring for him to get to host the show. One day…
