Mads Mikkelsen tackled the role of cannibal Dr. Hannibal Lecter in the television series ‘Hannibal’. Now, it seems the incredibly talented actor has formed a taste for horror, he wants to sink his teeth into a new subgenre, zombies.

During an interview with Birth Movies Death Mikkelson revealed that he really wants fight zombies.

I love zombies. I do love watching Walking Dead. I do. There’s something so fascinating, where (Mads is getting very excited) when the zombies are moving sufficiently slowly, you actually want to live in that world, you know? Because you can just fucking chop the shit out of them!” He continued, “But you should always be aware! Don’t get too close up! Because that’s when that’s when they come. They are quite fascinating, the fast ones. Like World War Z. But it’s also too scary, man (laughs). That’s too fast for me. I wouldn’t stand a chance.”

I could see Mikkelson on ‘The Walking Dead’ or as the star of his own zombie film. He would be a nice addition to ‘The Walking Dead’. In fac, he and Norman Reedus, who plays Daryl on the hit series, have worked together before. Both Mikkelson and Reedus appear in Hideo Kojima’s video game ‘Death Stranding’, alongside Guillermo del Toro.




You can also see Mads Mikkelsen in the upcoming films ‘Rogue One: A Star Wars Story’ and ‘Doctor Strange’. Let’s hope the powers that be hear Mikkelson and grant his wish. With his range, I have no doubt he would be a fantastic zombie slayer.
