Happy Birthday Peter Dinklage!

Today is Peter Dinlage's 45th birthday!  I admit that I've never seen Game of Thrones, so I'm most acquainted with Dinklage's big screen work.  

My favorite Dinklage performance, though, might be from the very first thing I saw him in.  Thomas McCarthy's The Station Agent is one of my all time favorite movies, and I will be watching it today in celebration of Dinklage's 45th.  He stars as a lonely train enthusiast named Fin who inherits a small train depot after his closest friend dies.  Even though he only wants to be left alone, he can't keep away Patricia Clarkson and Bobby Cannavale.  It's truly a gem of a movie.  

If you haven't seen The Station Agent, check out the trailer below.
