Peter Dinklage to Land First Post 'Game of Thrones' Role Opposite Rosamund Pike

Winter is gone girl.

"Game of Thrones wrapped up last month after eight seasons, and for fans who just can’t seem to get over it, we’ve got some good news for you.

Peter Dinklage, known as Tyrion Lannister to GoT fans, is in negotiation for his first big role since the beloved HBO series ended.

According to Variety, the new thriller, "I Care a Lot", will start shooting this month. Dinklage is to co-star opposite Rosamund Pike.

Details about Dinklage’s character are still under wraps but it’s clear that it’ll be very different from his Westerosi character.

The upbeat thriller is based around a successful legal guardian who uses her understanding of the law to benefit her own case at the disservice of her client. After she cherry-picks what she thinks is the perfect client, she soon realizes that looks are deceiving.

Dinklage is one of the first of the GoT family to negotiate a new role, but we’re sure this is the first of many.

Pike’s last major film was "Gone Girl" in 2014, which garnered her first Academy Award nomination, playing opposite Ben Affleck. In 2017, she was also nominated for a Saturn Award for Best Actress in her role in the western "Hostiles".

Dinklage Meanwhile received five Emmy Nominations for Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Drama Series, winning both in 2011 and 2015 for his role on GoT. His last big screen outing was as Stormbreaker forger Eitri in 2018’s Avengers: Infinity War, while he’s also set to voice characters in both animated sequels The Angry Birds Movie 2 and The Croods 2.
