Brace yourselves, y’all. If you couldn’t tell by my above exuberance, the Mikkelsens are coming. It has just been announced that accomplished Danish actor Lars Mikkelsen, brother to Mads, will have a key role in the coming 3rd season of BBC’s Sherlock. I…honestly don’t know whether to crow or give my condolences right now. Sorry, fandom, I knew thee well? These brothers have got shit on LOCK from what twitter/tumblr rainbow!barf is telling me. This, is despite Hannibal being currently off-air while Sherlock s3 hasn’t even started yet. It’s a scary thing. Let me dance in it.
Lars will be playing a villain (snerk) named Charles Augustus Magnussen and, as far as we know, all direct references to canon blackmailing villain “Charles Augustus Milverton” are correct and expected. *does the wave* Get used to the above picture: You’ll be seeing it a lot as fans the world over begin frothing at the mouth. Can’t say I blame them.
Goddamn, I love Denmark.
[Editor’s Note: I am losing my shit. TWO MIKKELSEN MEN! I can’t. I just can’t. BUT. I. WILL. And clearly there is a shortage on cheekbones because of these two. I say GOTDAAAAAYUMMM. – DivaJulia]
