Peter Dinklage sword fights, writes poetry, and sings in Cyrano trailer
Game Of Thrones veteran Peter Dinklage (Tyrion Lannister) sort of returns to a medieval setting in Cyrano, a new musical based on the famous 1897 play Cyrano de Bergerac by Edmond Rostand. Peter Dinklage stars as Cyrano, a smart and courageous blacksmith who is too insecure to go after the woman he loves, Roxanne (Haley Bennett). Instead, he tells the handsome Christian (Kelvin Harrison Jr.) what to say so that Christian can woo her instead.
The play has been adapted several times over the years – Steve Martin and Daryl Hannah gave their turns in the 1987 film Roxanne, for example. This new release is a musical written by Dinklage’s wife, Erica Schmidt. Dinklage originally played the role on stage in an off-Broadway production, but it’s clear it was so good that you had to commit to the movie.

Critics praise Peter Dinklage’s performance in Cyrano
Dinklage looks great in her Renaissance finery and has all the magnetism we remember. Game Of Thrones. The film becomes solid reviews, with Dinklage distinguished for its performance.
The only bad thing about this trailer is that Dinklage doesn’t actually sing in it; yes, the title lies a bit. But surely he has to sing at some point? Otherwise, I would like to get my money back. Come on, Tyrion, let’s listen to these tips!
Cyrano hits theaters in December.
