We already know that Mads Mikkelsen can cut an imposing presence on the big screen (and small too; see “Hannibal“), but the actor is showing a whole new side of his talent in the upcoming “Men & Chicken.” The movie allows Mikkelsen to practice his comedy chops, and today we have an exclusive clip that highlights these skills that are not often seen.
Directed by Anders Thomas Jensen, and co-starring David Dencik, Nikolaj Lie Kass, Søren Malling, and Nicolas Bro, the story follows a pair of socially challenged siblings who discover they are adopted half-brothers, and journey to the small, insular Danish island of Ork, where they make discoveries about their unexpected and wacky family. In the clip below, Mikkelsen’s character is seen on a date, albeit one with an ulterior motive.
“Men & Chicken” opens in limited release on April 22nd. Watch below.
