Academy Award-winning actor Peter Dinklage is joining the star-studded cast of Universal’s Wicked, lending his voice to the role of Dr. Dillamond, a CGI goat history teacher at Shiz University. Dinklage’s casting was confirmed as a voice role, and his involvement in the project has generated significant excitement among fans and critics alike.

As a mentor to Elphaba, the protagonist of the story, Dr. Dillamond’s role is crucial in shaping Elphaba’s perspective on the world. His character is subjected to discrimination, particularly from the hands of The Wizard and Madame Morrible, making him a poignant addition to the cast. Dinklage’s impressive range as an actor, showcased in his recent work in Joe Wright’s Cyrano, makes him an excellent choice for this role.

The Wicked film adaptation is highly anticipated, and the latest reveal from CinemaCon has only added to the excitement. The film will be split into two parts, with the first part set to debut this fall and the second part following in November 2025. The first trailer premiered at the Super Bowl, generating widespread conversation and sparking interest in the project.

Michelle Yeoh will play Madame Morrible, while Jeff Goldblum will take on the iconic role of the Wizard of Oz. Broadway alums Jonathan Bailey and Ethan Slater will portray Fiyero and Boq, while Saturday Night Live’s Bowen Yang will star as Pfannee, one of Glinda’s friends.
