Peter Dinklage Still Can’t Voice Act in Game of Thrones Launch Trailer

Peter Dinklage is a pretty good actor, but you wouldn’t know it from his performance in Destiny, and the launch trailer for Game of Thrones: A Telltale Games Series doesn’t paint his talents in a much better light. It could be that Dinklage’s talent for casting meaningful looks is lost without motion capture, or it could simply be a lack of aptitude on his part -voice over and screen acting are two very different skill sets, and not all actors can manage both. Whatever the case, the rest of the game looks pretty solid, and Telltale likely can’t afford to give him a starring role anyway, so we should be able to grin and bear it (dire wolf it?) for the few scenes that feature him. Episode 1: Iron from Ice, is out tomorrow on PC and PS4, and will arrive Wednesday for Xbox One and Xbox 360 users, as well as PS4 users in Europe.
