‘Station’ star on right side of tracks

Dinklage, Bloomberg in on Touchstone TV deal

Thesp Peter Dinklage, who earned raves as the star of indie feature “The Station Agent,” has sealed a talent holding deal with Touchstone Television.

As part of the pact, Dinklage has aligned with Stu Bloomberg, whose shingle is set up at the studio, to create a small-screen vehicle for the actor.

Besides “Station Agent,” Dinklage also stars in the current box office hit “Elf.”

“A successful television series can be boiled down to two elements: a strong idea and a strong actor,” Bloomberg said. “Going into the development process with Peter, we’re blessed with the latter. Now it’s our job to create the former.”

Dinklage has also signed on to appear in the film “Surviving Eden,” a mockumentary about a reality show winner who goes from nobody to celebrity and back again. Dinklage will star opposite Cheri Oteri, Jane Lynch and Michael Panes; Greg Pritikin (“Dummy”) will produce.

The actor is also set to appear on stage in the Lincoln Center production of “Toulouse Lautrec,” directed by Martha Clark.

Dinklage first appeared in the 1994 feature “Living in Oblivion.” Other credits include “Safe Men,” “Bullet,” “13 Moons” and “Human Nature.” His TV resume include guest stints on “Third Watch,” “Oz” and “The Street.”

But it’s his star turn in “The Station Agent,” which won the 2003 Sundance fest audience award, that served as the actor’s breakthrough role.

Dinklage is repped by SMS and Turnpike Entertainment.
