Party Smasher Inc. - the new musician / illustrator / photography site created by Dillinger Escape plan's Ben Weinman - has released a new video interview with actor Mads Mikkelsen, in which he discusses horror movies, classic rock, and more. Check it out below, and Party Smasher also comments:

"Mads Mikkelsen is the Danish actor currently killing it (literally) as Hannibal Lector on the hit show Hannibal. Perhaps it was his bloody eyed role in the James Bond film Casino Royale, that showed us just how creepy this guy could be. What most people don't know, however, is that he was originally a gymnast and dancer. The guy can KICK!

"Check out this one-on-one with Elliot of Little Punk People where Mads talks about his love for classic rock, horror movies, and getting over the nerves of playing one of our generation's most iconic villains."

Enjoyed this interview very much. I thought the young interviewer did a great job, and Mads seemed to genuinely connect with him. They both seemed very comfortable. I learned a few things about Mads, and I think the "money shot" was when Mads said that he looks for the good in the bad guy and the bad in the good guy, when studying for a role. I appreciated the refreshing angle of this interview! Thanks.

I'll watch this later but I'm a big fan of Mads Mikkelsen. Pusher II is one of my favourite films and Valhalla Rising and The Hunt are great too.

After "Hannibal" I started checking out his back catalog and he's in some interesting stuff. "The Hunt" for instance was a tough watch, but he does a phenomenal job in it.
