It became official last week, when his character got all vulnerable about the first time he ever loved a woman. I am officially crushing on Peter Dinklage, the actor who plays Tyrion Lannister on "Game of Thrones" and basically every other good role for an actor with dwarfism in film and television in the past decade.
I don't know what Dinklage prefers to be called (probably "Peter"), but I just can't use the term "little person" for him, becase um, he is this huge, sexy, smoldering presence, all scruffy about the face and eyes that look like they've seen things, and well, it just doesn't sound right. He is a big person.
And I don't want to sound like one of those women who go on about how hot Denzel Washington is to prove they're not racist. I am not hot for Peter Dinklage because he has dwarfism, I'm hot for him because he's hot!
And because HBO saw fit to cast him in a role in which he gets to be a sexual presence. He drinks, he carouses, he has sex with hookers like winter is coming... He wears leather pants and talks dirty. He's basically pure id and I want to break me off a piece of it. And if there is justice in this world, he's probably gonnna win an Emmy for it!
Since people with dwarfim are often cast for laughs, it's extra hot to see Dinklage given a well-rounded, non-stereotypical role he can really sink his teeth into. Just like I want to sink my teeth into his derriere in a moment of weird passion that perplexes even me. Wait, what were we talking about?
The only thing that could be better is if Dinklage's next role has nothing to do with having dwarfism at all, say the lead in a romantic comedy?
Peter, call me! I know you have a wife and child, I just wanna talk.
