@Empress

You were just jealous of the witty intellect that was flashing in that post! Laughing Razz

I was just saying that the one picture looked like a cooking show and I thought it was funny because we were talking about that before.

HA! DELETE THAT!

Mads Mikkelsen talks losing his head in ‘A Royal Affair’ & following Anthony Hopkins’ bloody footsteps as TV’s ‘Hannibal’

By mattmcd | The Reel Breakdown – Sat, 10 Nov, 2012 5:12 PM EST

Danish actor Mads Mikkelsen, 46, courts Oscar in the 18th-century romance "A Royal Affair," (opening today) the Danish entry for Best Foreign Film. In that sexy historical drama, Mikkelsen plays the German doctor and philosopher that charms crazy King Christian VII of Denmark (Mikkel Boe Folsgaard) and beds his young English queen (rising star Alicia Vikander).

"Mads? Of course, as a Scandinavian I had seen a lot of his films," Vikander told Yahoo! Movies this week. The Swedish actress, 24, who also has a major role opposite Keira Knightley in "Anna Karenina" continued: "He's one of our greatest actors. When I met Mads for the first time at a screen test in Copenhagen, it took me one second to realize he's one of the most down to earth men. He's funny, witty, brilliant and a real inspiration."

Despite his high profile in Scandinavia — and a standout role as the Bond villain Le Chiffre in "Casino Royale" — Mikkelsen's career has reached a new high this year. He won best actor honors at Cannes for "The Hunt," and he's currently filming "Hannibal" in Toronto opposite Hugh Dancy. The highly anticipated NBC series will premiere in 2013 with Mikkelsen in the title role made infamous by Sir Anthony Hopkins, Hannibal Lecter.

When I met the tall, high-cheek-boned actor in Toronto last September, he struck me as a cross between Viggo Mortensen and Ciaran Hinds — intelligent, physical and grown-up sexy. And every bit as down-to-earth as Vikander says. As for his hot streak, he was philosophical: "I never really planned a career," Mikkelsen said. "I've tried to avoid it. I've tried to do this stuff I felt for, the stuff I like. So, I've just been meeting these fantastic directors who've offered me a variation of different parts and different films. And now it's landed here."

Directors like Nicolaz Arcel, the Dane responsible for "A Royal Affair," and the screenwriter of the Swedish version of "The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo" with Noomi Rapace. When Arcel cast Mikkelsen as Johann Friedrich Struensee, the German who becomes King Christian's personal physician, he rose to the challenge — physical and emotional. "There's no such thing as easy," said Mikkelsen, "but it's easier when a script is good. Even though the characters may go through hell, it's nice for an actor because it's there on the paper."

And, in "A Royal Affair," his character literally goes through hell. Despite becoming the King's closest confidante, the doctor's radical ideas and his intimacy with the queen become his undoing. It's not a spoiler to say that things don't end well for the good doctor. It's a matter of historical record. "Yeah," agreed Mikkelsen. "I mean it's a well known story. Let me put it this way. They're both dead today."

The most heart-wrenching moment is when the doctor arrives at the scaffolding outside of town, still believing King Christian will stay his execution. As an actor, Mikkelsen had to get inside the doctor's head — and then lose it. Is it hard to recreate such a traumatic scene? "It was quite," said Mikkelsen. "We as actors imagine things like that. It's what we have to do. But if it's there and there was the scaffolding. The axe was there. It was really cold. It was really a sad day. I'm walking up these stairs now. I'm saying goodbye to my whole life. Also, he realizes it's not just fifty people out there watching. It's the whole city and they hate him. He didn't see that coming. It's heartbreaking for him."

The doctor considered himself a man of the people, given his enlightened political ideas, and then even the people turn, is that right? "They didn't have any idea what his job was. They thought he was trying to kill the King and shag the queen."

Mikkelsen's co-star Vikander added insight to the historical relationship between royal and doctor that began as a meeting of the minds and deepened from there with tragic results. "Both of them ended up in Denmark, a country where they couldn't speak out or express themselves," she told Yahoo! Movies. "In that way both of them suddenly met someone with whom they were soul-mates. They found someone that they could open up to and actually be themselves with and that was why they had such a strong connection and why they had this love affair."

While in "A Royal Affair," Mikkelsen's plays a doomed hero; he's equally adept at playing villains. Enter Hannibal Lecter, the TV series. The NBC show is set in contemporary America. It takes place before the FBI arrests Lecter for his serial crimes. "That was a nice shift of gear for me," said Mikkelsen of being cast in an American TV series. "Like wow, why not stick with something for a long time and see how it goes?"

Certainly Anthony Hopkins, who won a Best Actor for playing Lecter in "The Silence of the Lambs," throws a big shadow over the character. "You can't avoid that," agreed Mikkelsen. "He made it iconic and for a good reason. He's absolutely outstanding in that character. We cannot move away totally from the fact that he is what he is, if not a little decadent then at least a man full of taste. But this takes place before he's captured. Before anyone knows what he is."

Mikkelsen offered a thumbnail of the plot, which is a prequel. "Lector is hired to help Will Graham [Dancy], who is a genius FBI profiler. But unfortunately Will suffers from too much empathy. It means he cannot deal with the cases. He's putting himself in the shoes of the killers and he cannot handle that situation. So, the FBI hires me to help him deal with his job."

Big mistake, right? "Right," Mikkelsen continued, "I'm a psychiatrist. And all of a sudden I find myself in this candy store where I love being in the middle of every investigation that comes in. It means I can do pretty much what I want. I can manipulate the cases that Will's running. I can get away with anything."

Does this Lecter commit murders or just solve cases? "There's a lot of solving cases and I do eat stuff occasionally," Mikkelsen said. "A man's gotta eat."

Meet the new Hannibal Lecter

JOHANNA SCHNELLER
Special to The Globe and Mail
Published Friday, Jan. 25 2013, 5:00 PM EST
Last updated Wednesday, Jan. 30 2013, 9:14 AM EST


The first time most North Americans saw Mads Mikkelsen, he was torturing Daniel Craig with infinite finesse as the banker Le Chiffre in 2006’s Casino Royale. Not only was that the first 007 film the Danish actor was in – it was the first he’d ever seen.

“I actually lied at the audition,” Mikkelsen told me during an interview in Toronto, where he’s shooting a TV series. “During the whole press tour, I was still trying to get hold of what this Bond thing was about. In Australia, a journalist caught my trick; she asked me a 10-question quiz about Bond and I got zip right. So then I went back and saw them all. I enjoyed the universe, but I grew up with Bruce Lee and grittier action stuff.”

As he made that admission – in fact, as he said most everything – a small grin hovered around Mikkelsen’s mouth. It softened the stark planes of his jaw, cheek and brow bones, which thrust out of his face at angles so dramatic they’re almost cubist. The grin also conveyed that he’s pleasantly amused by the attentions of movie stardom, but only to a point; he clearly prefers working to talking about it. His manner is genial but brisk, and at times his Danish accent recalls Arnold Schwarzenegger’s Austrian one, only delivered at twice the speed.

There’s no doubt that Mikkelsen, 47, is having a pop-cultural moment. Last May, he won the best-actor award at the Cannes Film Festival for playing a teacher accused of child abuse in Thomas Vinterberg’s The Hunt. Last month, the lush period drama A Royal Affair – Mikkelsen stars as the real-life 18th-century doctor whose relationship with Denmark’s Queen Caroline helped bring Enlightenment ideas to that country – earned an Oscar nomination for best foreign-language film. (A Royal Affair opens in select Canadian cities this Friday, and The Hunt is due out this spring.) A Royal Affair is the second foreign-language nominee that Mikkelsen has headlined, by the way; the first was 2006’s After the Wedding.

As well, later this year Mikkelsen will star as Dr. Hannibal Lecter in the NBC series Hannibal, a prequel to the Anthony Hopkins films, which is shooting in Toronto. “He’s a practising shrink who’s hired by the FBI to help out a younger profiler [Hugh Dancy] who has too much empathy,” Mikkelsen says. “They ask me to help him cope with his cases, not understanding I’m a kid in a candy shop.”

All this Mads-mania doesn’t feel sudden to Mikkelson, however; he’s been working toward it for a long time. As a child in Copenhagen, he was a gymnast, then studied contemporary dance. At 16, he began dancing professionally, touring the world and at one point working with Martha Graham’s company in New York. (Mikkelsen’s lissome screen presence reminds me a bit of Christopher Walken, who also has a dance background.)

“But I was more in love with the drama of dance than the study of it,” Mikkelsen says. So at 26, he enrolled in theatre school. In his final year, he cut some classes to shoot a film, Nicolas Winding Refn’s Pusher. It would become a trilogy; Mikkelson reprised his role as the hoodlum Tonny in Pusher 2. When he graduated at 30, Pusher was already in theatres, “so I skipped the whole part of knocking on doors,” Mikkelsen says. Five years later, in 2000, he was starring in a hit Danish TV series, the police procedural Unit 1, which made him comfortable enough with fame that even Bond didn’t rattle him – much.

“Shooting Casino Royale was not an extraordinary experience, in that we made scenes as we would have done in any film in the world,” Mikkelsen says. “But when we did the premiere in London, I saw the magnitude of what Bond is. There were 50,000 people in Leicester Square, we were walking the red carpet forever, we met the Queen.

But you can only be famous to a certain degree in Denmark,” he continues, “and if you’ve been in a popular TV show, you’re already famous for life. We say our ceiling is very low, meaning that you’re not supposed to stick out in any way. Anyone who tries to ‘make it,’ we take them right down. There are people who say, ‘Way to go, that’s cool,’ but the next day in the paper, the paparazzi will take my picture on the way to play tennis wearing something casual, or maybe when I have the flu, and they’ll put up the story, ‘He’s done! He’s finished!’” He grins again.

Mikkelson signed onto Hannibal for the steady work and the chance to play a rich character. When he first read the script, he recalls thinking, “‘Can we get away with this on American television?’ It’s very elaborate in the way that people play with each other’s minds.” He also welcomed the opportunity for his family to live somewhere new for a while. He and his wife, Hanne Jacobsen, have a son, 15, who’s in school in Toronto, and a daughter, 20, who’s doing volunteer work in India, “saving the world, as you’re supposed to do when you’re 20,” Mikkelson says.

“I’ve always liked visiting Toronto, and it has not disappointed me since moving here,” he adds. “The Canadian people have the same approach to irony and sarcasm as we have in Denmark. It’s a nice way of having a beer, instead of cracking jokes nobody gets. But they also have the ambition that we are fighting against back home.”

Lecter may be the stuff of nightmares, but playing him doesn’t haunt Mikkelson: “No, I’m not tortured, ever. For me, it’s always been about getting into the character as fast as you can and leaving as fast as you can. I don’t insist on my family calling me Hannibal.” Grin. “But I take my work enormously seriously. When I do something, it has to feel right; everything has to be right. I’m not ambitious about my career, but I am ambitious with each job. I can be fairly annoying to work with. No compromises, let’s put it this way. Compromises are from hell.

“I ask a million questions, and I insist on having answers,” he continues. “Yes, I’ve been doing this for years, but if you were doing it for only one week, you’d have a perfect right to ask those questions as well. I think that is what we have to do. I have to know what the director wants. Some are very much in their head, and I need to force it out of them. I can’t just play around for eight hours and see if something happens. And I’ve called people in the middle of the night because there’s something I’ve been thinking about that we’re shooting the next day.”

He can be intimidating, Mikkelson admits. “I never see that myself, but I hear it once in a while. Hopefully, people figure out that I’m doing it all for the film.” A final grin threatens to break out. “People will sometimes say, ‘Oh man, in the beginning I thought you were going to kill me. But it turned out to be cool.’”

'Hannibal' first NBC trailer revealed -- EXCLUSIVE

by James Hibberd

Below is the first trailer for NBC’s upcoming drama series that takes on the most popular non-supernatural serial killer in American movie history. This is a cool short tease. The clip includes one of the most darkly playful exchanges from showrunner Bryan Fuller’s pilot script — FBI profiler Will Graham (Hugh Dancy): “I don’t find you that interesting.” Lecter (Mads Mikkelsen): “You will.” Also, like the Hannibal title font.

This trailer makes its on-air debut tonight during Saturday Night Live (Django Unchained star Christoph Waltz is the host). The thriller will premiere Thursday, April 4 at 10 p.m. Scroll down for your first look….

NBC startet "Hannibal" im April

17.02.2013 - Ralf Döbele/wunschliste.de in Serien (international)

Endlich steht fest, wann NBC den berühmtesten Kannibalen der Filmgeschichte auf seine Zuschauer los lässt. "Hannibal" mit Mads Mikkelsen in der Hauptrolle startet am Donnerstag, den 4. April.

Die Midseason-Serie erhält jenen Sendeplatz um 22.00 Uhr, auf dem gerade erst "Do No Harm" nach nur zwei Episoden ein unrühmliches Ende gefunden hat (wunschliste.de berichtete). Auch andere Dramaserien, die NBC in den letzten Jahren am Donnerstagabend etablieren wollte, fanden bei den Zuschauern keinen Anklang. "Prime Suspect", "Awake" und "The Firm" wurden alle nach nur einer Staffel von NBC wieder eingestellt.

Für die Serienadaption von Thomas Harris' legendärer Romanfigur zeichnet Bryan Fuller, Erfinder von "Pushing Daisies" verantwortlich. "Hannibal" setzt am Beginn der Beziehung zwischen FBI-Agent Will Graham (Hugh Dancy) und Dr. Hannibal Lecter (Mikkelsen) ein. Zu diesem Zeitpunkt ahnt Graham noch nicht, dass sein vermeintlicher Mentor ein gefährlicher Serienkiller ist. Die erste Staffel von "Hannibal" wird 13 Folgen umfassen.

Hannibal starring Hugh Dancy, Mads Mikkelsen and Laurence Fishburne to air on Sky Living in the UK

The hotly anticipated drama series will be shown in Britain shortly after its US premiere in April

Tom Cole, 5:17 PM, 25 February 2013

Hannibal, a new US TV series starring Hollywood actors Hugh Dancy, Mads Mikkelsen and Laurence Fishburne, will air on Sky Living this spring.

Based on characters created by Thomas Harris in his novel Red Dragon, Hannibal explores the budding relationship between the genius psychopath Dr. Hannibal Lecter (Mikkelsen) and a young FBI criminal profiler named Will Graham (Dancy).

Fishburne stars in the drama as the head of the FBI’s behavioural sciences unit, and Hannibal will also feature guest appearances from Gillian Anderson as Lecter’s therapist and Eddie Izzard as an inmate at an insane asylum.

In the series, Graham is faced with a case he can't crack and turns to Lecter in an attempt to better understand the criminal mind. But while the breakthroughs keep coming, little does Graham suspect that the man he's looking for might just be the doctor himself.

Discussing the show, Sky Living’s director Antonia Hurford-Jones said: “We are delighted to be adding Hannibal to our line-up of quality US drama on Sky Living. We know this is something our customers really love and we are committed to bringing them the best the US has to offer.

“This series is perfect for Sky Living because it will appeal not only our core female audience, but to a shared one too. Plus it will complement our new original commissions which are starting to come through.”

Hannibal is set to debut on NBC in the US on Thursday 4 April and will begin airing on Sky Living shortly after its stateside premiere.

I am somewhat scared of Hannibal - I never watched the movies 'cause I didn't dare to. I am not very good at watching suspense stuff or stuff that is too bloody. And now seeing these weird deaths in the trailer... pfff... Does anyone know, if there will be a world wide synchronous start of the series?

Edit:
Just found a two minute extended trailer here.

Soooo... Hannibal episode 1 has been out for a few days. Have any of you seen it already? What do you think?

Personally, I am completely hooked already ... and I'm also kinda afraid of food right now.. sooooo disturbing! Shocked

phhhh - just watched the first episode - thanks to you, Caranaf, I somehow missed it.

My two cent: I now know perfectly well why I never watched the films! I always have problems with this kind of suspense, I can hardly stand it. Plus I must say I really find it disgusting - not necessarily the deaths (though I wouldn't want to have these as bed time stories) but Mads character and Hannibal being a cannibal. Normally I can abstract when I watch movies - working at the theatre does this for you: You know they are only playing... Laughing But my stomach is still upset after watching this episode... Shocked
But what makes me suffer the most is this extremely suffering Agent Graham Hugh Dancy is playing - every look, every word he utters is pure agony - and that is just boring to me: if he suffers that much already in the first episode where should that lead to? The character seems to be rather one dimensional and boring to me. Rolling Eyes
Mads is playing wonderful. But I think I won't watch another episode - I just can't stand it. Just as I feared and expected it... *sigh*

granted Agent Galahad [omg what's his name in the show? I already forgot ^^] really has his issues... but I think (and maybe it's wishful thinking) that before the s**t really hits the fan things are going to get better for him, with the help of Hannibal of course, which will make the ultimate catastrophe even more devastating... and I am looking forward to this abysmal cataclysm. Then of course, I might also be completely wrong and it really will be dull... well then there is still the pure Madsness to enjoy... which means I will probably stay hooked, no matter what Laughing
