    I've seen most of Mads' work, and by far his best performance is in Pusher 2.

    But he's great in everything.

    What if Mads' character ends up being Cylo? The first Cylo I mean...

    Cylo is a pretty goofy character. Intentionally so.

    He's not Cylo, that makes no sense if you read the comics.

    Well, it is very heavily hinted at that it's Cylo.

    I wonder if Mad's character will be a scientist who was forced into working on the Death Star project. I can't remember what novel it was, but there was a scene with Vader and Tarkin in a room full of scientists, and Tarkin making a subtle threat that they're families will be well taken care of and that secrecy was of the upmost importance. Vader was doing what Vader does best...reinforcing the threat by looming over everyone. Most of the scientists were voicing concerns of being overworked and not having enough details to see what was being constructed. It was a project management nightmare in that the big picture wasn't being shared with all of the project teams...due to the secrecy. Jyn Erso's character could've been smuggled out of her home (or abandoned) due to the fact that her father (Mads) wanted her safe. Mads would've been pretty much the recluse paranoid scientist in an area Manhatten Project setting with no connections to family or the outside world.

    MSW reports more evidence that Mads' character name is "Galen."

    Galen Erso. Perfect.

    Unless Jyn prefers to be called by her mother's name.

    Yes it has a nice sound to it. But we'll have to wait for confirmation on that one.

    article confirms mads is jyn's father.

    •New information about Jyn Erso (The Theory of Everything’s Felicity Jones), the outlaw who has clashed with both the Rebellion and the Empire, and now has a chance to clear her ledger of past wrongs by leading a mission for the good guys. It’s also personal – her father, played by Mads Mikkelsen, is a scientist whose knowledge is sought by both sides.

    This will be the most interesting character of the movie. Good thing they got a world-class actor for this kind of role. :)

    That's some truly Star Warsian plaid he's wearing.

    I like how they clarified that it was just a file picture. Would have loved to see the debates on if plaid had a place in the GFFA. :p

    im sorry i have to strongly disagree and say Hannibal is his best performance and role! HEAVY bias here though ;)

    also, this guy will be vital to the plot, but im not sure he's going to see a lot of screen time with a whole range of characters, both new and old

    I think his unrivaled best performance is in Age of Uprising: The Legend of Michael Kohlhaas

    Well it would have be a nice wink to George anyway. If you're going to go for obtuse and nostalgic, why not? :p

    That sounds familiar.
