Peter Dinklage will not be full CGI for X-Men

Peter Dinklage, most commonly known for Game of Thrones, was confirmed last week for X-Men: Days of Future past and almost immediately there was conversation about which character he might have been cast as. Bryan Singer has pretty much confirmed for us that Dinklage will be playing the "main antagonist" and also knocked down the rumor that he was going to be a CGI character due to the fact that Dinklage is... well, a little person.
"He’s not going to be a CGI character.  He’ll be himself.  Not that he’ll be playing Peter Dinklage, he’ll be playing this character.  It’s not a shy character. He's just such a phenomenal actor. I’m a huge fan of Peter’s and Game of Thrones.  He was my first choice and I was really happy.  It’s so funny to talk to him because he does that impeccable accent [on Game of Thrones] and then you talk to him and he’s this guy from New Jersey."

I'm personally pretty happy that he won't be CGI because I found the automatic assumption that they would alter his physical state rather insulting. I look forward to seeing exactly what Peter will bring to the table.
