Mads Mikkelsen on superhero style, Star Wars and real-life cannibalism

Q: Who’s the sharpest character you’ve played?
A: Hannibal, by far. I’ve had fantastic outfits on before, but we’re talking about a man who’s deciding his own costume, it has to be Hannibal.

Q: What’s your favourite suit he wore?
A: I have it back home. It’s a grey, reddish striped thing that Bryan Fuller actually made a copy of for himself, which they gave me at the end of shooting.

Q: Did you keep anything else from the show?
A: That was about it. There might’ve been a few other little props that I put in my pocket, but I won’t tell you because they might want it back.

Q: What style advice can we take away from Hannibal?
A: Dress as if there is no tomorrow.

Q: If you had to eat anyone, who would it be and what would you make with it?
A: The world would’ve been better off if Hannibal had eaten Hitler. But then again he has to go on and eat Stalin and Mao as well, it’s going to be a lot of meals there. But let’s eat Hitler. It has to be German sausages with some sauerkraut on the side.

Nerdist Writers Panel #129: Bryan Fuller | Nerdist
The creator of Hannibal, Pushing Daisies, Wonderfalls, and Dead Like Me discusses his work habits, putting a philosophy in every scene, death, collaboration, Star Trek, and lots more. Recorded January 19, 2014.

Somehow it only just came together for me that I could listen to Bryan Fuller talk to Ben Blacker about writing television for an hour and a half, and I could not believe I hadn’t done that yet. Have you done this yet? Because let me tell ya, it is hilarious and illuminating from top to bottom. If you are interested in any of Fuller’s shows, or TV production in general, or just working as a creative, or working with creatives, or simply fascinated by the personal history of Bryan Fuller, A Brilliant Candid Weirdo — you should super get in here.

Also, as a conversation recorded back in January of 2014, it’s remarkably… prescient? It almost reads like a three-part primer on the current state of Hannibal, with some on-point speculation about the presidential election to boot.

“Bringing ‘Star Trek’ back to television means returning it to its roots, and for years those roots flourished under Bryan’s devoted care,” said executive producer Alex Kurtzman. “His encyclopedic knowledge of ‘Trek’ canon is surpassed only by his love for Gene Roddenberry’s optimistic future, a vision that continues to guide us as we explore strange new worlds.”

The creative plan is for the series to introduce new characters and civilizations, existing outside of the mythology charted by previous series and the current movie franchises.

me, remembering that alana and margot survived instead of being uselessly killed off:

me, remembering that we have a bomb ass director who supports us and genuinely cares about our opinions/thoughts even though he’s super busy and still wants the show back just as much as we do:
