~ The Game of Thrones superstar on voicing The Mighty Eagle in The Angry Birds Movie ~
Ever since Game of Thrones burst onto television screens, it was the portrayal of Tyrion Lannister by actor Peter Dinklage that had everyone talking. We now hear that the Golden Globe winner is looking forward to taking a break from his dramatic portrayals and finding some ‘comic relief’ in his professional career. Peter was heard saying that getting a chance to do comedy is his favourite part about the upcoming Angry Birds movie where he has lent his voice for the Mighty Eagle, a mysterious giant anthropomorphic Bald Eagle who is idolized by the Birds of Bird Island although they have never seen him in real life, but has some secrets up his feathers.
Dinklage says, “Mighty Eagle likes to talk, talk and talk about himself. He has a mighty Ego. There’s a huge group of hilarious comedians starring in the movie, like the most number of funny people ever together in one movie. I had such a blast upstaging all of them. My favourite part about the film is the slapstick comedy, it’s such a break from the slapstick drama I’ve been doing lately.”
Based on one of the most successful games of the recent times – Angry Birds, the star cast of the movie includes Jason Sudeikis (Horrible Bosses), Josh Gad (Pixels, Frozen), Danny McBride (Due Date, This is the End) and Maya Rudolph (Grown Ups, Bridesmaids). Distributed by Sony Pictures, The Angry Birds movie will release in India on May 27th in English, Hindi and Tamil. It will also be available in 3D.
