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?
