Foxtel has confirmed an airdate for the new HBO drama film My Dinner With Hervé starring leading actors Peter Dinklage and Jamie Dornan.
Inspired by a true story, My Dinner With Hervé explores the unlikely friendship between the world’s most famous French dwarf actor, Fantasy Island star Hervé Villechaize (played by Game of Thrones’ Peter Dinklage), and struggling Irish journalist Danny Tate (Fifty Shades of Grey star Jamie Dornan) as it unfolds over one wild night in L.A. in 1993 – a raw and honest encounter that will have life-changing consequences for both.
Written and directed by Sacha Gervasi, who the character of Danny Tate is based upon, the film follows the final days of Hervé Villechaize’s life, before he commits suicide at the age of 50, shortly after his interview with Tate.
My Dinner With Hervé also features a stellar lineup of supporting cast members, including Andy García as Villechaize’s Fantasy Island co-star Ricardo Montalbán, Harriet Walter as Tate’s newspaper editor and David Strathairn as Villechaize’s longtime agent.
My Dinner With Hervé will stream and screen on FOX SHOWCASE from Friday, October 26 at 8.30pm AEDT.
