Tyrion-April-185x3001EXCLUSIVE: Leading Game of Thrones actor and Emmy winner Peter Dinklage will not return to HBO’s flagship program for a fourth season in 2014. In a press conference the morning of April 1st, 2013 show creators David Benioff, Dan Weiss alongside George R.R. Martin made the announcement to stunned members of the media.

“Today is both a sad day and an exciting one for HBO’s Game of Thrones,” Benioff began. “Sad because we’ve all gotten to know Peter on set and love him dearly as a friend. We’ll miss him sorely. Exciting because we’re heading in an entirely new direction with the character of Tyrion Lannister for season 4.”

 

Members of the press began to stir and murmur in anticipation of what the show creators, who had seemed so stable and reliable up until this moment, had to say next. Producer Dan Weiss continued the explanation adding, “It was a unanimous decision between David, myself, Peter and George. We want to take Tyrion in a more comedic, farcical direction and everyone including Peter agreed that he just wasn’t the man for the job. I’ll let the other guys speak for themselves but for me the choice was as clear as a crystal crown. Warwick Davis will be our new Tyrion Lannister!”

 

Warwick-Davis-Game-of-Thrones1Just then Warwick Davis, a British comedian best known for his roles in Star Wars, Harry Potter and the HBO comedy Life’s Too Short, stepped into the room to flashing cameras and even more commotion from members of the press. Warwick then took a seat next to Martin.

When asked whether he approved of this decision, George R.R Martin responded enthusiastically:

“Warwick was actually my pick back in 2009 when we first began looking at potential cast members. It finally hit me last week while taking an indefinite break from writing The Winds of Winter to catch up on some of my favorite movies. I think it was his epic role in Willow that finally convinced me. Such wit. Such… tenderness.”

 

Warwick has reportedly asked for 1 million dollars per episode, amounting to nearly 20 percent of the show’s 50 million dollar per season budget. “We felt that Warwick’s experience and star power was well worth the investment,” Weiss said. “We’ll be seeing a lot less of the dragons and direwovlves due to the new budgeting that will have to be done to compensate. But in the end it’s a small price to pay for this kind of acting gravitas.”

The producers also noted that, in an effort to maintain continuity, Warwick Davis’ face will be digitally transposed over Mr. Dinklage’s in all future releases of Game of Thrones on DVD and Blu-Ray.

At this point many members of the media began to shout out pertinent questions such as “How does Peter feel about all this?” and “Are you fuc@!n6 serious right now?” but the Game of Thrones show-runners were already on their way out the door, waving and patting each other on the back as they went.

Peter Dinklage himself could not be reached for comment in a recent interview the actor expressed feeling anxious about devoting so much time to a single project:

“I’ll tell you true.. Game of Thrones has been a wonderful experience all around, certainly. But I do wonder if I’m not limiting myself in some ways. I recently had to turn down a part playing Kelly’s newest love interest on The Big Bang Theory. I love that show! It killed me to have to turn it down.”

This reporter, for one, stands in shock and awe at the decision handed down this, the first day of April. Today was supposed to be a great day for Game of Thrones fans with season 3 kicking off last night and an almost assured announcement regarding a fourth season. I suppose we should all just take a deep breath and trust in the wisdom of the producers and creators that brought us this wonderful show in the first place.

We’ll update this piece when we know more about the fate of Tyrion Lannister.

Goodbye, Peter.

Game-of-Thrones-Season-2-George-RR-Martin-Tyrion

UPDATE: April Fools!

I know, I know this was one of the cruelest jokes anyone could have played on the first of April.. and just hours after the season 3 premiere!   Everyone would be devastated if something happened to Peter and his relationship with Tyrion Lannister.  To be fair we did give you some hints along the way (give it a re-read if you were fooled!).  Though we understand that many of you couldn’t get past the headline without tears of rage/sadness filling your eyes leaving you unable to read and/or think straight.

We apologize for any hurt feelings, friends lost or keyboards/monitors smashed as the result of our little April fools gag.  We know most of you took it in stride.  Rest assured that Game of Thrones will premiere next year airing around the same time as last year’s start and you’ll be watching it online with HBO GO as easily as ever. You can even stream Game of Thrones for free online with HBO Now, these days.

We felt like trolls all day but we hope the majority of our readers had a good little laugh.  We promise we won’t ever do this again… on our honor as Lannisters.   Until next year…

Haha Theres no way HBO could do that. I laughed at the announcement cause theres just no way they could replace him. Even if Peter died HBO would have to get their special effects crew working on a cgi version of him. Of all the terrific characters in GOT hes the best. I just couldn’t continue to watch without him. You rock Peter and I am glad they were joking.

Peter rocks it out! I loved him in Find Me Guilty, Elf and I am looking forward to Knights of Badassdom and his CONTINUED role on GOT. Willow, Leprechaun, Acorn and the not so recognizable Wicket (Ewok)….Warwick is a great actor but no else could play Tyrion at this point without a huge outcry….good prank HBO

Everything always descends to, “Big Bang Theory is shit” which it is, because it’s tedious, predictable, clichéd and lazy, nothing at all to do with science and everything to do with bad writing. The fact that it gets 20 million viewers per week is not a measure of quality, it’s a measure of intelligence, or lack thereof.

T’ank g’d eet vazz ‘üst a yoke!

Reply
Chad Mucklow April 2, 2013 - 2:48 am

Lol, people really do get militant about the entertainment that they enjoy.
The argument here seems to be “Who is a douchebag?” and I hate to break it to you but it’s most of you.

Game of Thrones is a wonderful show with wonderful actors, doesn’t hold a candle to A Song of Ice and Fire but it’s fantastic anyway.

TBBT is a sitcom, one that I enjoy immensely. As sitcoms go it’s one of the better ones, I’ve only ever watched three of them religiously. (Friends, HIMYM and TBBT)

I loved SoA until the end of season 4.

The Walking Dead was amazing until the latest season which I didn’t enjoy much what with the lack of focus on the main cast (and what’s with Rick & co not taking Woodbury?)

I don’t like Breaking bad, I’ve tried to watch it a few times but I get this feeling I’m about to sit through another Weeds (Regular dude sells drugs, things get crazy, he stops being so regular, things get crazier season by season until it’s so far out of the realms of possibility that I’m just saying “Meh”). That and the manufacture of Meth Amphetamines aren’t a subject that interests me at all.

I love Arrow, but then I love anything DC. (Not Smallville though)

The point I’m making is that it’s a person’s prerogative to pick and choose which TV shows they enjoy. There is no point in hating on folks just because they like something that you do not. But then I suppose that’s religion for you, and what are people doing if not worshiping these video files?

“Heathen! Game of Thrones is the true show, there is no show but Game of Thrones!”

Get over yourselves.

I can’t fathom how an off-hand comment expressing mild contempt for a TELEVISION SHOW – not any human individual or group, not a set of beliefs – sparked such a heated and hostile argument! There are the obvious trolls, and some that are probably subtle trolls that I don’t notice, but… people on the internet get so upset so quickly! It escalates and you’re enraged but NOTHING SUBSTANTIAL OCCURRED! I realize I’m not the first person to comment on this phenomenon, but I am rather in an altered state of consciousness where I have the desire to comment. on something on the internet. with a bunch of strangers. thoughts?

When I saw the headline, I was thinking “WTF?!?”. When I saw the “new direction”, I started looking at the date to see if it was still April 1st. Then when I saw Warwick Davis, I busted out laughing. Then I didn’t read the rest. I’m hoping no one else fell for this.

Uh isn’t this post about Game of Thrones? Why all the talk about The Big Bang Theory? Some people like it, some people don’t. Doesn’t mean you have poor taste either way, it just means that you have different tastes. Also bashing other shows doesn’t prove that your show is better. Sorry Breaking Bad is amazingly acted, written, and directed. Also just because something makes a lot of money, or gets 20 million viewers does not prove that its great. We need more discussions not arguments. We all have different opinions, let us all just accept that fact and move on with our lives.

Not even cool! You got me because where I am (South Korea), it is no longer April Fools. I thought all the cruel pranks were done for the year…

lol seriously? this was a silly joke. and people are arguing over the quality of the show the Big Bang Theory? lmao wow. If people did not like that show or any other show it would not have been on this long. See in the world of hollywood tv and movies there is this things called FAN BASE. which means a group of a lot of people that like something enough to make it popular. might not be all the people in the world in that group but more than enough, lol i mean who fights over a show seriously lol lamers

I was wondering why Peter was leaving because Tyrion was supposed to be more comical only to go on The Big Bang Theory, which is supposed to be funny. Also, why would you want to mask his face in the DVDs??? LOL. I was going to fly off my soapbox if the dragons were really going to be gone because of some actor I’ve never heard of!!! I figured it was all April Fools, but you never know anymore.

I was about to be so pissed, he’s my favorite character. Get rid of that douche Joffrey. And why are none of you actually talking about “Game of Thrones” and fighting over “The Big Bang Theory”? True internet queers.
