Warner Bros. releases The Great Gatsby 3D on May 10, 2013.
Casino Royale. Quantum of Solace. Clash of the Titans. The Three Musketeers. These are just some of the more recent Films in which you’ve seen Mads Mikkelsen and while out getting Breakfast with Billy early this morning, I bumped-into the brilliant Actor who looked like he was out for a walk or a jog. Mikkelsen who earlier this year won Best Actor at the Cannes Film Festival in May for The Hunt, currently is in Toronto filming Hannibal.
The upcoming NBC Series which centers around Criminal Profiler Will Graham (Hugh Dancy) who seeks help from famed Psychiatrist and Cannibalistic Serial Killer Hannibal Lecter (Mikkelsen), yet at the same time becomes his greatest Nemesis. Fans of Silence of the Lambs will eat this up. In a non-Cannibal sorta way of course.
Things aren’t slowing-down any time soon for the dark, mysterious Danish Actor who has been in Toronto multiple times before for TIFF and even promoted both The Hunt and upcoming Period Drama, A Royal Affair, while filming Hannibal. I did meet the Actor back in 2009 following a Screening of the phenomenal Coco Chanel & Igor Stravinsky, but am thrilled to have a Snap together with him. Mikkelsen was smitten with Billy, leaning-down to give him a pat on the head. Super-gracious!
Hannibal wraps in February 2013. Learn more about the Series here.
