Peter Dinklage made his acting debut in the 1995 comedy-drama ‘Living in Oblivion’. After appearing in a series of supporting parts in much of the 1990s and early 2000s, he made his breakthrough by starring in the Tom McCarthy-directed comedy-drama ‘The Station Agent’ in 2003, which had him play a railroad-obsessed introvert who inherits an abandoned train depot. He was cast in the role by director Tom McCarthy who recalled fondly his appearance in McCarthy’s play ‘The Killing Act’ in 1995. For his performance, he received a Screen Actors Guild Award nomination for Best Actor and an Independent Spirit Awards nomination for Best Male Lead. In the same year, Dinklage played the title role in the play ‘Richard III’ at The Public Theater. He also played a children’s book author in the comedy ‘Elf’.
