Mads Mikkelsen on ‘Rogue One’ and Playing a ‘Star Wars’ Anti-Hero
Mads Mikkelsen has always been good at playing bad. He’s turned human organs into dinner party delicacies, whipped a naked Daniel Craig with a giant rope, and tortured by Rihanna for his infidelities. Now the Danish actor can add one more evil deed to his acting resume: creator of the Death Star.
2016 Emmy Nominees: Biggest Surprises and Snubs
Boy, that was quick. 2016 Emmy nominees were announced this morning, and special presenters Lauren Graham and (a very excitable) Anthony Anderson wasted no time in revealing this year’s crop of nominees. While there was rightfully plenty of love to go around for dramas like The People v. O.J. Simpson and Mr. Robot, and comedy faves Veep and Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, there were a few disappointments — namely, where the hell is UnREAL?! Or The Leftovers? Come on, Emmys.
'Hannibal' Season 4 Possiblity Open in 2017, Says Fuller
The likelihood of Hannibal Season 4 seems to get dimmer with each day removed from that cliff-diving finale, but according to Bryan Fuller, our chances are actually improving. Busy though he, Mads Mikkelsen and Hugh Dancy remain, Fuller says the possibility may again open up in late 2017.
Mads Mikkelsen Wants 'Hannibal' Back as TV, Not Movie
At this point, even die-hard Hannibal fans know that it would take some years for any kind of revival, given Mads Mikkelsen, Hugh Dancy and Bryan Fuller’s increasingly complex schedules, though many would presume a condensed film effort would help broaden prospects. Intriguingly, however, Mikkelsen would much prefer Hannibal remain as episodic TV than any kind of one-off movie.
'Hannibal' Close to 'Silence of the Lambs' Rights, Says Star
The prospect of a Hannibal future seems farther and farther each day, with Bryan Fuller split between American Gods and Star Trek, and its stars all off in their own galaxy, though fans well know the most fertile ground left to cover would be that of Silence of the Lambs. Rights issues made it impossible before, but Mads Mikkelsen claims NBC was close at the time of Hannibal’s cancellation.
'Hannibal' Piracy Killed the Series, Says Executive Producer
Every canceled fan-favorite draws accusations as to which factors caused its demise, and NBC’s Hannibal was no different. The dark and dreamy Mads Mikkelsen-Hugh Dancy drama simply didn’t have the viewers, something producer Martha De Laurentiis believes owes to piracy.
CBS 'Star Trek' Sets Bryan Fuller as 2017 Showrunner
CBS has kept mum on details of a new Star Trek TV series since the announcement that it would debut on CBS All-Access in 2017, and its first announcement brings mostly good news. First off, Hannibal and American Gods showrunner Bryan Fuller will return to his Star Trek past to topline the new series!
Hugh Dancy Reveals 'Hannibal' Season 4 Plot Details
Hulu’s first trailer for The Path gave us a peek at Hugh Dancy’s next role, though many a Hannibal fan keeps hope that Bryan Fuller will one day reunite Dancy and Mads Mikkelsen for another chapter. Fuller has long kept vague on the mystery plot to a potential fourth season, though Dancy gave some tantalizing clues that “took us back to the first season.”
The Best TV Shows of 2015 (According to Britt Hayes)
Not only was 2015 a great year for film, but it might have been a more consistently great year for television — so much so that it was impossibly difficult to choose just 10 shows from a list that began with about 15. As such, I want to give honorable mention to a few of the series that would have been included if this were a longer list: Tina Fey’s remarkable new Netflix comedy Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, the final (half?) season of Mad Men, the incomparably hilarious and relatable Broad City, the dizzying and dangerous journey of The Jinx, another delightful season of Orange Is the New Black, the final outing of Parks and Recreation and the reliably enthralling Game of Thrones. Oh, and Difficult People! How could I forget Billy Eichner and Julie Klausner’s wonderfully biting Hulu series? See. It was an excellent year.
