‘The Angry Birds Movie’ a ‘break’ for Peter Dinklage

Los Angeles, April 27 (IANS) Actor Peter Dinklage, who has lent his voice for the Mighty Eagle in “The Angry Birds Movie”, says it’s a “break” from all the “slapstick drama” he has been doing lately.

Ever since “Game of Thrones” burst onto television screens, it was the portrayal of Tyrion Lannister by Dinklage that had everyone talking. Now the Golden Globe winner is looking forward to taking a break from his dramatic portrayals and finding some comic relief in his professional career.


“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,” Dinklage said in a statement.

“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,” he added.

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 27 in English, Hindi and Tamil. It will also be available in 3D.
