“The Visitor” director Tom McCarthy is reuniting with his “Station Agent” star, Peter Dinklage, for HBO’s “A Game of Thrones” pilot, based on George R.R. Martin’s series of “A Song of Ice and Fire” fantasy novels .

AICN got a tip in February that Dinklage was likely to be tapped for the role of Tyrion.
