Recent Emmy Award-winner and "Game of Thrones" star Peter Dinklage goes from dragons to limousines as he portrays "the most famous dwarf in the world" in the new official trailer for HBO's upcoming Herve Villechaize biopic "My Dinner With Herve."

The movie, written and directed by British journalist-turned-filmmaker Sacha Gervasi (Hitchcock, Anvil: The Story of Anvil), is based on Gervasi's own series of interviews that he conducted in the early 1990s as a young reporter covering the incredible life story of French-born dwarf actor Herve Villechaize, who was primarily famous for playing the iconic sidekick character Tattoo on the classic TV series "Fantasy Island" and the evil James Bond villain "Nick Nack" in "The Man with the Golden Gun."

"Fifty Shades" star Jamie Dornan plays a fictionalized version of a young Gervasi, an ex-alcoholic, recovering magazine journalist named Danny Tate, who is sent to interview Villechaize for a profile article.

"I haven't given an interview in ten years," says Dinklage in Villechaize's french accent. "I HAVE a real story for you, junior."

The HBO film chronicles Villechaize's rise to fame in the late 1970s and early '80s. It will also cover his reputation of being a notorious womanizer and belligerent Hollywood star, as well as being a misunderstood and gifted painter.

The cast also includes Mireille Enos (TV's The Killing) as Villechaize's longtime girlfriend Kathy Self; Andy Garcia as legendary Hollywood-Mexican actor Ricardo Montalban, who played Mr. Roarke on "Fantasy Island," and David Strathairn as Villechaize's longtime agent, Marty Rothstein.

"My Dinner With Herve" is set to debut October 20th on HBO.
