nyc Peter Dinklage game of thrones beanie pup

When he's not playing Tyrion Lannister in the hit HBO series Game of Thrones, he's just a regular guy walking his dog!

Peter Dinklage and his pooch took a stroll in chilly N.Y.C. on Tuesday, and we're very eager to see him back on the small screen as the fun-loving lord with a keen taste for fine wine and women.

Last year the 43-year-old actor won the Golden Globe for Best Performance by an Actor in a Supporting Role on a TV series, but this year he missed out on snagging a nomination.

The series returns on March 31 ... can't wait!
