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…

BIG mistake. Tryion was the show. His voice just vibrated through every scene he was in. We have heard the new season isn’t so good. Maybe the producers should have stopped at three seasons instead of going on. It WAS a wonderful show.

You fooled me for a full year! Didn’t read the title carefully. Replacing a bad a$$ actor and wasting a fifth of your fundings. On top of that less dragons! I was irate, & I got close to 80 people believing what I thought was true- terrible joke but thinking back… You would have loved the reactions of the enraged fans of GOT I’d convinced. The irony in your joke & everyone’s reaction, well played

yah just read the books everybody going ” wahhhh id stop watching the show” like seriously is the sense of entitlement in this day and age that ridiculous… I expect them to do this show the way I want, and they better spend 11 million per episode. Like just be FucX1n9 grateful that they are even adapting it at all and if you really love the story, go buy the books cause honestly, this is an amazing show but, It doesn’t even come close to the Books especially since they have cut out like 75% of the characters and story lines, not to mention changing sooooooo many things that they arent even really telling the same story anymore … Like Gendry being Edric storm???? and Mel going to get him(WTF)
and whats with all the Robb stark scenes ? He’s not a POV character so I hate seeing his conversations with Talisa.. And who the F is Talisa anyway ummmm Unnecessary switch Like Naming her Jeyne must have just been too confusing for the writers, not to mention she doesnt Die in the books, same with Dany’s Silver, why are D and D taking these liberties into theyre own hands like follow the story to a Tee cause George is a better writer than any of your network adapters and hes wrote it this way so far for a reason. That’s not to say I would stop watching the show if they continue down this path of changing almost everything about the story, But rather I would just pick up the books and read to remind myself of how much better they are than the show…

I never understood this brand of fanboyism. Did you expect D&D to send you a thank you note for white knighting on their behalf? Artists, including people who work in television, are obligated to please their fans, fans are not obligated to like a damn thing. The idea that fans of something have no right to voice their displeasure with certain decisions is just retarded. Just like you, Sponce.

GOT FAN April 2, 2013 - 5:52 pm

I have read all the books and follow some blogs. I am a pretty huge fan of GOT. This has to not be real. I’m sorry but Peter IS Tyrion Lannister and to suddenly change the show into most of character Tyrion Lannister takes away from what GOT is! The show has already killed two characters from the book that weren’t supposed to be and gave a useless whore (in the book) a larger role on screen that wasn’t supposed to happen. This isn’t GOT.

I seriously advise you to rename your TV Series because this IS a joke.

Sincerely,
GOT FAN

I’ll buy the whole TV series from HBO when it is completed–IF it is completed. I hate to be left hanging because the writers are too lazy or greedy to finish the story. I’m done.

The funny detail is that Peter was the only cast member who didn’t audition for the part because GRRM simply had to have him as Tyrion. To say that he initially wanted Warwick back in 2009 made me a 100% sure that it was in fact an april fools joke.

Arguing about whether TBBT is a “good” show is pointless, since it’s the simple matter of taste. And whether or not it is scientific is easy. I’m one month away from receiving my PHD in Maths and I’d have to say that most of TBBT “scientific” material is pretty basic stuff and sometimes even wrong (schrödingers cat misconceptions). Yet, it has a lot more “science” than any other sitcom (that I know of) and it reportedly helps young students head into the exact sciences direction which makes me very happy :)

If about 15 million people regularly watch something you’d have to at least consider they think it’s “interesting”.

Coming at who like what? They’re not saying that’s what it is, they’re saying that without the sex (and violence I’m sure) that’s what most of the show’s fans would think of it.

Luckily my friend caught on that it was a joke before my computer went out the window.

alright, saw this on the second so I wasn’t even thinking about it being a joke. And I was about to comment here something to the effect of “Alright, rage-quitting the series.”

When Warwick was asking for $1m per episode, I’m sorry, the veil was lifted, I carried on reading anyway, and thought it was great :’)

So glad to hear this was a joke! I’d been hoping for the past 24 hours that it was!

His character does not appear in the 4th book, but does return in the 5th, so he most likely will not be involved in the filming next season,

I read this (and probably the next) season is a mixture of both Storm of Swords books, and Dance with Dragons. I imagine that’s so that all the characters get screen time and viewers don’t get confused by the unchronological order

You had me! You had me until “We’ll be seeing a lot less of the dragons and direwolves 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.” Lol….After hearing Warwick Davis described this way, I instantly scrolled back to the top b/c I said this is BS! and very happily discovered that this was an all an April Fool’s joke after all! Lol…Thank God! :-)

Numpty’s, the biggest clue is it says (APRIL FOOLS!) in the tab title.

I think the biggest clue it was fake was that HBO would be willing to give Warwick a a decent gig.

Warwick Davis’ face will be digitally transposed over Mr. Dinklage’s in all future releases of Game of Thrones on DVD and Blu-Ray. This is what gave it away for me
