MIKKELSEN HOPES FOR BOND REPRISE
Mads Mikkelsen wants to play another James Bond villain. The actor portrayed Le Chiffre in 2006’s Casino Royale and joked he wants to persuade Daniel Craig to stay on as 007 after the release of upcoming movie No Time To Die because he wants to make another film in the series with him. Mentioning how Maud Adams famously played Andrea Anders in The Man With the Golden Gun and then returned to the franchise 11 years later as the titular character in Octopussy, he said: “I would have liked to have gone back with Daniel Craig. It was wonderful to start out with him in Casino Royale, and it would have been fun to wrap it up with his last Bond. I’ll have to talk him into doing another one.” Mikkelsen’s latest film is Another Round, in which he plays history teacher Martin, a man who has “simply forgotten how to embrace the present,” with his marriage suffering and his kids disappointed in him.
