Every X-Men movie needs a human antagonist, and in Days of Future Past, that part falls to Bolivar Trask, creator of the greatest threat faced by mutantkind: Sentinels. Given that Trask's creations are what bring about a dystopian future in which mutantkind is on the brink of extinction, it's fair to say that he's going to be a central part of the movie's goings-on ... which is why it's good they got an actor like Peter Dinklage to play him. And, for Dinklage, who has already conquered the fantasy world with one of everyone's favorite characters on Game of Thrones, Trask is a chance to dip his toe into the previously unexplored world of comic-book cinema.

We recently had the opportunity to sit down with the Emmy award-winning actor to talk about his transition to superhero movies, where Bolivar Trask is coming from, and what it took to rock that sweet mustache in the film.
