Apparently, this film has been in the works for years. Starring Peter Dinklage and Jamie Dornan (Fifty Shades of Grey), My Dinner With Hervé centers on Sacha Gervasi’s (Hitchcock) own experience interviewing Hervé Villechaize. Reportedly a passion project for Dinklage, The Game of Thrones actor is finally getting his wish, and we have the first photo from the HBO film and a synopsis.
An unlikely friendship evolves over one wild night in LA between a struggling journalist and actor Hervé Villechaize, the world’s most famous gun-toting dwarf, resulting in life-changing consequences for both.
The diminutive star’s life came to a tragic end when he committed suicide in 1993. Here’s hoping the film provides more insight into the man they referred to as Tattoo on Fantasy Island.
