UNDERDOG

PETER DINKLAGE (Dr. Simon Barsinister) first came to fore as Tito, the dwarf actor in Tom Decillo's "Living In Oblivion,” in which he delivered an open rant to an entire generation of would-be filmmakers, refusing to be used as a gag or a prop – while honoring his craft with an unforgettable fierceness and dignity. Dinklage later went on to redefine the concept of a leading man with his starring role in the 2003 Sundance Audience Award winner "The Station Agent.” 

For his work in "The Station Agent,” Dinklage was recognized with a "Best Actor” nomination in the 2003 Independent Spirit Awards, as well as being named one of the top 5 "Breakout Stars” of the year by Entertainment Weekly. Also in 2003, Dinklage received critical raves for his appearance in the Will Ferrell box office hit "Elf,” where he played scene-stealing children's author Miles Finch. 

His recent films include Sidney Lumet's "Find Me Guilty” starring opposite Vin Diesel, "Lassie” opposite Peter O'Toole and Michael Showalter's "The Baxter.” Dinklage stars this fall in Frank Oz's British comedy "Death at a Funeral” and the offbeat fable "Penelope” starring Christina Ricci, James McAvoy and Reese Witherspoon. 

Dinklage recently completed filming on "3/5 a Man,” about Nat Turner and the 1831 Slave Rebellion, and is currently shooting "The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian.” Upcoming projects also include "Mendel's Dwarf” for Barbara Streisand's Barwood Films and the "Affair of the Sorcerers” franchise.

Other feature credits include Michel Gondry's "Human Nature” written by Charlie Kaufman; John Hamburg's "Safe Men”; Eric Shaeffer's "Never Again”; Alexandre Rockwells' "13 Moons” and Greg Pritikin's "Surviving Eden.” On television, he has been seen in the CBS sci-fi series "Threshold” and in a recurring role on the popular "Nip/Tuck.”

On stage, Dinklage recently starred in a production of "Endgame” with Gary Oldman as part of the Samuel Century 100th Birthday of Beckett festival in Dublin, Ireland. In 2005, he was nominated for a Drama League Distinguished Performance Award for his portrayal of Richard III at New York's Public Theater and he starred in the Charlie Kaufman New Ear radio play "Hope Leaves the Theater” opposite Meryl Streep and Hope Davis. Dinklage has also appeared Off-Broadway in such plays as Marc Spitz's "I Wanna Be Adored,” Brandon Cole's "Imperfect Love” and Jonathan Marc Sherman's "Evolution.”
