Mad Mikkelsen has revealed that he wished he had a chance to speak with Johnny Depp before Mikkelsen took on the role of Depp’s dark wizard Gellert Grindelwald in the upcoming third Fantastic Beasts movie.
Depp was set to reprise his role as the main villain in the Harry Potter prequel spinoff film series when he lost his job following a UK court ruling that a British newspaper that had criticized Depp’s casting in the second film. by referring to the actor as a “wife beater” he was not guilty of defamation and that Depp’s description of a “wife beater” was “substantially true”. Since then, Depp has also lost his appeal of the court decision.
Mikkelsen discussed the issue. in the sunday times and explained, “I mean obviously they were going to make the movie, and obviously he wasn’t involved anymore. But I didn’t have a dog in that fight. And I don’t know what happened. [in his private life]And I don’t know if it was fair that he lost his job, but I knew the show was on, and I would have loved to have talked to him if I had the chance, but I just don’t know him in that sense. “
He added, “But they called me and they were obviously in a rush, and I loved the script, so I said yes. And I know it was controversial for a lot of people, but that’s how it plays out from time to time.”
It is interesting that Mikkelsen is quite vague about why I would have wanted to discuss the role with Depp, as Mikkelsen’s comments certainly seem to suggest that he thinks it’s clear the movie will go on without Depp no matter what, so it doesn’t seem like Mikkelsen was prepared to broadcast on the job offer. , Depp asked him to do so, so it is unclear what he really wanted to say to Depp on paper.
Directed by David Yates and written by JK Rowling and Steve Kloves, Fantastic beasts 3 stars Eddie Redmayne, Katherine Waterston, Dan Fogler, Ezra Miller, Mads Mikkelsen, and Jude Law. The film hits theaters on July 15, 2022.
