Peter Dinklage Frank Oz

Dinklage and Frank Oz filming Death at a Funeral.

Peter Dinklage is an American actor, active in the industry since the mid-1990s.

Dinklage appears in Sesame Street season 44. Speaking of his experience filming with Muppeteers he says, " I did Sesame Street a little while ago, and those puppeteers are hilariously dirty. When the kids aren’t around, it’s like being in a muppet brothel. I think that’s how they keep their sanity. When you’re doing stuff for kids all day, you have to unload every once in a while. I had a muppet humping my leg. It was fantastic."[1]

His other credits include playing Tyrion Lannister on HBO's Game of Thrones, Miles Finch in Elf (with Will Ferrell and Zooey Deschanel), Trumpkin in The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian, and Bolivar Trask in X-Men: Days of Future Past (with Patrick Stewart).

He appeared in both versions of Death at a Funeral, the first incarnation which was directed by Frank Oz. When asked about working with Oz, and if he'd asked him to do Yoda's voice, Dinklage responded, "Oh my god, no. That would be too real, it would blow your mind. Your head would explode. I worked with Frank years ago on a movie called Death at a Funeral, and it was an ensemble with a bunch of guys around my age. If you’re in your 40s, you’re a Star Wars freak. It took a lot for us to control ourselves, but we all managed it. He was amazing for reasons that had nothing to do with Yoda. Like his cursing." When asked what was so amazing about his cursing, Dinklage responded, "That he was doing it at all. I mean, I have a foul mouth, and everyone I know has a foul mouth. Every other word out of our mouth is “fuck.” But you hear someone like Frank, who’s such a part of your childhood, swearing up a storm, it’s just jaw-dropping."[1]
