About this Article

It's fair to say that Mads Mikkelsen dines out on his new starring role. He plays the title character in NBC's new grisly gourmet drama, "Hannibal," which focuses on Dr. Hannibal Lecter -- scholar, connoisseur, cannibal -- during an earlier, more nuanced time than was covered in the hit film "The Silence of the Lambs" and its sequel. No surprise: When Mikkelsen was offered the role, he hesitated to bite.
