There really isn’t much Warner Bros could do at this point to entice me to see Fantastic Beasts 3 considering my personal feelings l about J.K. Rowling (nosy bigot, nerd), Johnny Depp (court certified “wife beater”, greasy teeth and hair), and Eddie Redmayne (looks like Albert Nobbs, #NotMyMarius), but hiring my favorite Danish snack food, Mads Mikkelsen (tastier than Smørrebrød, would let him cannibalize my labia a little) is a start. According to Deadline, Mads is currently Warner Bros’ first choice to replace Johnny Depp as Grindelwald in the movie, which is already in production. If that happens, and they can get the coronavirus under control to the point where I can take a plane trip of at least 8 hours, then I MIGHT consider watching it until the Klonopin and tonic kicks in. I might. But only for Mads.
I mean, just look at him! I’d open a vein for Mads, and I’d be able to do it using his cheekbones (and yes, I do have zaddy issues, so what!) Deadline reports:
Put Mads Mikkelsen atop the list of actors being considered to replace Johnny Depp in the David Yates-directed Fantastic Beast 3, the third installment of the Harry Potter spinoff based on the JK Rowling fantasy franchise. Sources said he is Yates’ choice to play Grindelwald and he is in early talks. The aim is to keep on track a picture that recently moved its original November 12, 2021 release date to summer 2022. The cast led by Eddie Redmayne and Jude Law are already shooting.
In a way I want Mads to tell Warner Bros to kick rocks because there’s no way FB3 isn’t a cursed production and I don’t want any bad juju spraying all over Mad’s face. It won’t be sexy like whatever is happening here in this poster for his latest Danish film, Druk.
Deadline says that even though Johnny is out as Grindlewald, he had originally signed up for a five-picture deal which could translate to a sustained paycheck for whoever replaces him. I mean, if they can pay for Johnny to sit on his ass, they should be able to come up with enough scratch to pay Mads to step on our necks.
