Dinklage will star as Bolivar Trask, the mutant-hating scientist from the comics who invents the robot sentinels, who themselves are one of the most iconic villains in the X-Men universe. The reveal came via an amazing new viral website Fox has set up called trask-industries.com. On the site, you can watch a commercial chronicling how Trask Industries has been keeping us safe from the mutant threat for 50 years, thanks to giant purple robots.
The site also features some video of Dinklage as Trask, sporting the aforementioned mustache along with amazing '70s hair and glasses. He seriously looks like he just walked off the set of Anchorman. It’s awesome.
The new X-Men movie doesn’t premiere until May of next year, so we’re going to have a pretty difficult time containing our excitement over the next ten months. Dinklage and sentinels, yay!
