    They used his likeness for admiral jhared montferrat in the short story, Blade Squadron so it would be cool if he actually portrayed that character.

    Great casting!!! I would love to see him as a high ranking Imperial, even to the extent that it may be carried on in Rebels and the live-action TV show.

    WHAT A STEAL. Can't wait to see if he and Mendelsohn's characters have any head butting.

    I'm can't see him as anything other than an Imperial Moff.

    Yeah, I can't not see bad guy for him, he does it so well.
    I think Mads makes me more excited than Forest Whittaker, and that's saying something because I'm super psyched he's officially it.

    This is interesting casting, for sure. He was great in Casino Royale.

    Indeed. If he can give the same performance he gave in Casino Royale or The Hunt (never saw it but I heard he was good) into a Star Wars character then that would likely make him a complete favorite among well everyone.

    Not in the hero shot. European AND has amazing cheekbone --> Imperial Moff.

    Hopefully when he catches the Rebels, he will eat them.

    I watched Casino Royale only once (TBH, because I dislike that film) and can't remember much of that film. But it's interesting that this Moff from the Blade Squadron story was drawn to look similiar to Mads Mikkelsen. Given the Story Group's approach to connect the various new canon stories, it's much likely that he will be playing that role in Rogue One.

    We know that Montfarret was serving on Vader's flagship at the time that Rogue One occurs, and we've all heard the rumors about Vader in Rogue One. We also know that Vader's flagship chasing the Tantive is a direct result of the events of Rogue One. It would make perfect sense for Montfarret to appear in Rogue One.

    If it's true that he's playing a mocap character, and assuming the bounty hunter rumours are true, he'd be a great Cad Bane. Bane's features would have to be mocap if he were to get a decent sized speaking role.

    I think Tudyk is playing Cad Bane.

    Le Chiffre in Star Wars... That's a really great casting choice!

    Perhaps Mads is playing another rare hero, maybe even a Bothan?

    *Pouts just a little bit because I still [face_love] him as Tristian... and I would have liked to have seen another character in that vein.

    I have a hard time believing that he WON'T be playing a villain. It's what he's most known for, he does it REALLY well, and everything about him just screams "sinister Imperial."

    He's the one I'm most excited about for Rogue One casting.

    He'll probably be a villain, but I love it if he got another hero role.

    Maybe Mikkelsen will end up playing a mo cap Cad Bane.

    Where has the rumor come from according to which Mikkelsen will be playing a mo cap character? I hope it's not true, Mikkelsen is such an intimidating looking fellow that it's seems like a waste to use him only as a mo cap actor. I mean, yes everybody likes Cad Bane, but Mikkelsen as a Imperial admiral or some such would be worthy of admission by itself.

    Mads may be my favorite actor. The film that made me a huge fan was Pusher 2 by Refn. But Valhalla Rising is also pretty amazing.

    This and Ben Mendelsohn is just too much to hope for. SW fans should consider themselves very lucky.

    How is Casino Royale getting so many mentions, but not Hannibal? I like all three actors' portrayals, but to me, he's the definitive Hannibal. Considering the company he's in, that's saying a lot.

    I look forward to seeing what he contributes to this universe.
