You know, Peter Dinklage is a fantastic actor, with a sense of dramatic delivery, comedic timing, and twat-king slapping. But let’s face it, the man has undoubtedly faced every variation of half-assed joke about how he should next play an oompa-loompa, hobbit, ewok, or dwarf in his next film or for Halloween. [note to self: patent the idea of Peter Dinklage playing a slutty hobbit on his next “Saturday Night Live” appearance. Shut up, brain, that’s how patents work now].

So for him to agree to star in an as yet untitled R-rated comedy featuring him as a leprechaun in the vein of “Bad Santa”? That takes such lovely brass ones, that I do hope he carefully keeps them polished.

THR has an exclusive on the project. Luckily, I have foiled their dreams of information domination with the elite mastery of ctrl-C and its little brother ctrl-V. They report that the film will be “deep in R-rated territory but wrapped around an emotional heart” in addition to featuring Dinklage as a man who pretends to be a leprechaun. No further details are available, but really, are any necessary?

There’s also no word on whether this will be a reboot, sequel, or mere spiritual successor to the “Leprechaun” series, but I imagine it’s unthinkable that they won’t bring back Jennifer Aniston and Ice-T for cameos at the very least.
