Peter Dinklage is “the man with the golden gun” in the new HBO film “My Dinner with Hervé.”
The movie stars Emmy-nominated “Game of Thrones” regular Peter Dinklage as Hervé Villechaize, the French dwarf actor who appeared as the evil Nick Nack in the James Bond film “The Man with the Golden Gun” and as Tattoo in the series “Fantasy Island” in the late ’70s- early ’80s. “50 Shades of Gray” star Jamie Dornan plays the struggling journalist Danny Tate, who is assigned to write a profile of Villechaize.
The film is inspired by the true story of the unlikely friends, who spent one wild night in Los Angeles that had life-changing consequences for both of them.
“I have a real story for you, junior,” Hervé tells Danny in the teaser trailer, above.
Alongside Dinklage and Dornan, Mireille Enos stars as Hervé’s longtime girlfriend, Kathy Self; Harriet Walter as Danny’s newspaper editor, Fiona Baskin; Oona Chaplin as Danny’s girlfriend, Katie Nielson; with David Strathairn as Villechaize’s longtime agent, Marty Rothstein; and Andy García as Ricardo Montalbán.
Sacha Gervasi directs the movie, with a screenplay by Gervasi and story by Gervasi and Sean Macaulay. Dinklage executive produces with Gervasi, Steven Zaillian, Richard Middleton, Ross Katz and Jessica de Rothschild. Garrett Basch and David Ginsberg serve as co-executive producers.
The movie will premiere on HBO on Saturday, October 20 at 8 p.m.
