Peter Dinklage covers Esquire
Why are we crawling towards the premiere of Season 4 of Game Of Thrones?
We had Bran and Hodor on The Social yesterday! Did you know Hodor is a professional DJ who’s toured with Scissor Sisters and Calvin Harris?!? His real name is Kristian Nairn. Anyway, they’re both super cute and super nice and we went head to head on a Game Of Thrones trivia game and one of the questions was “Who has never been the Hand of the King”:
Littlefinger! Hodor and I won that round but lost the match.
Anyway, here’s Tyrion, Peter Dinklage, on the cover of the new issue of ESQUIRE in a custom Armani. It’s kind of a trippy interview. Dinklage tells the story of being recognised one day on the street by a guy on a motorcycle. Their eyes met.
“And I connected with him. And then he pulled out into traffic and boom. There was an old guy driving the car. I ran into this coffee shop that I’d been on my way to. They had somebody call an ambulance. And then I ran back outside to be with the guy, but he was already dead. I didn’t want to get too near him. The old guy had stopped and he was slowly getting out of his car. It was in the morning, so there was no one around, you know? This was in L. A., where nobody walks. It was empty. So there was this quiet moment where it was like I was the only person in the world who knew this guy was dead. And I was there looking at him, you know, in those moments of calm after something horrible happens, the calm before the melee starts, before the ambulances and the cops arrive and it becomes a scene. There was that moment when I was with him.”
Now if that wasn’t bad enough, the journalist, after a few moments, blurts out:
“Do you think you might have distracted him?”
Weirdest f-cking interview ever.
