Peter Dinklage, also present in the series Game Of Throneswas invited to present she came to me, in which he plays an opera composer in lack of inspiration, with Anne Hathaway. But due to the social movement in Hollywood, both canceled their visit. This is also the case for Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Jude Law.
