Bond bad­die picks Lecter over Thor

The Gold Coast Bulletin - Play Magazine - - PLAY FREE TV -

vil­lain Mads Mikkelsen (pic­tured) has pulled out of the Thor se­quel be­cause he’s play­ing can­ni­bal Dr Han­ni­bal Lecter in a new TV drama pre­quel to Red Dragon. The Dan­ish Casino Royale star will take on the role pre­vi­ously played by Brian Cox and Sir An­thony Hop­kins in the TV adaptation of writer Thomas Har­ris’s con­cept, and that means he won’t be free to bat­tle Thor . ‘‘I had a meet­ing with them, but they were a lit­tle too late,’’ he tells The Playlist. ‘‘And then Han­ni­bal came in, and ev­ery­thing just came in the same pe­riod, so now it’s not hap­pen­ing.’’
