Dinklage was accompanied by Aaron Dessner and Bryce Dessner of the National.

Cyrano is a musical romantic drama film based on the Erica Schmidt stage musical. Schmidt's musical was itself inspired by the Edmond Rostand play Cyrano de Bergerac.

In the new film, Dinklage plays Cyrano de Bergerac, a French novelist and playwright. A trailer for the movie shows Cyrano (Dinklage) love his friend Roxanne (Haley Bennett) from afar, convinced that she wouldn't feel the same and that the world wouldn't accept their romance.

The National wrote the music and lyrics for both the stage musical and the new film. The movie is directed by Joe Wright (Pride & Prejudice, Atonement) and also stars Kelvin Harrison Jr., Bashir Salahuddin and Ben Mendelsohn.

Cyrano opens in theaters Jan. 21, 2022.

Dinklage is known for playing Tyrion Lannister on the HBO series Game of Thrones.
