The problem is, as described, he doesn't have any of the physical
characteristics of a genetic dwarf except the height and a faintly hunched
stance. No textev whatsoever for a normally-sized torso and
disproportionately short and malformed arms and legs. Let alone the
dish-shaping of the face.
We've had the pro-Dinklage/anti-Dinklage argument from this basis before.
Can we *please* not go there again?
