It's a "Mads" house, a Maaaaaads house!!
Danish actor Mads Mikkelsen, fresh from winning an acting award at Cannes, was just cast as Hannibal "the Cannibal" Lecter in NBC's new fall thriller.
Hannibal also stars Hugh Dancy as an FBI investigator who enlists the help of renowned psychologist Dr. Lecter — without realizing he is secretly also a sociopathic, murdering man-eater.
Yikes! Sounds terrifying!
Anthony Hopkins famously portrayed Lecter in three successful films, winning an Academy Award for Silence of the Lambs in 1991.
The great Dane will have huge shoes to fill!
Do U think he's up to the task!
