Dinklage to Play "Underdog" Villain

by | March 31, 2006 | Comments

Peter Dinklage, indie-centric actor best known for his work in "The Station Agent" and "Elf," has been tapped by Disney to play the villain in the studio’s upcoming live-action rendition of the classic "Underdog" cartoon.

Says Variety: "Peter Dinklage has signed on to play the bad guy in Walt Disney Pictures and Spyglass Entertainment’s "Underdog." Live-action version of the popular kids cartoon starts shooting April 10 in Rhode Island under the helm of Frederik Du Chau.

Dinklage will portray Simon Barsinister, an evil scientist who once created a Big Dipper Machine in an effort to steal the world’s water supply."

Young actor Alex Neuberger, last seen in "Running Scared," is also aboard the "Underdog" project. Director Du Chau’s last (and first) live-action effort was last year’s "Racing Stripes."
