My Dinner with Hervé: His Real Life Was the Biggest Fantasy of All, a new feature film based on the life of Hervé Villechaize (1943–1993) starring Peter Dinklage, premieres on HBO on 20th October 2018.

Inspired by a real story, My Dinner with Hervé explores the unlikely friendship between struggling journalist Danny Tate (Jamie Dornan) and Hervé Villechaize, the world’s most famous knife-wielding French dwarf actor, as it unfolds over one wild night in L.A. — an encounter that will have life-changing consequences for both. The film also stars Mireille Enos as Hervé’s longtime girlfriend Kathy Self, Harriet Walter as Danny’s newspaper editor Fiona Baskin, Oona Chaplin as Danny’s girlfriend, Katie Nielson, with David Strathairn as Villechaize’s longtime agent Marty Rothstein, and Andy García as Ricardo Montalbán, Villechaize’s Fantasy Island co-star.

In a smaller role, Swedish actress Helena Mattsson portrays Britt Ekland who co-starred with Hervé Villechaize in the 1974 James Bond film The Man with the Golden Gun directed by Guy Hamilton (portrayed by Doug Cox in My Dinner with Hervé). Mark Umbers portrays the late Sir Roger Moore in one of the other smallers roles. (Helena's sister, Sofia Mattsson, portrayed Gundel in Becoming Bond starring George Lazenby. Small world.)
