This suggestion is off a list from as part of an ideal casting. Also since it’s Star Wars season I though picking Star War alunms would fun so Mads Mikkelsen it is.

Mikkelsen play Galen Erso in the 2016 Rogue one or Rouge one  if you’re dyslexic like me. He also had very long career playing different types of Character from Hannibal Lector to Kaecilius in Doctor Strange  to  playing opposite Alicia Vikander in A Royal Affair. Vikander was also the topic of a Hypothetical casting post for Esmeralda.

I will confess, Mikkelsen would not a my first pick to play Frollo but upon looking more in his acting and considering his look, I can see this a good option. First he a good actor with a good range. It’s hard to really pinpoint how he would approach the character but pending on the film direction for Frollo, I would say he could pull it off effectively.

Mikkelsen also has very interesting facial features that could lead themselves to a really good and memorable look for Frollo with the right make-up direction.  He just the kind of actor who can skew more attractive to more weird looking, I don’t mean that in a bad way.

Mads Mikkelsen would not be my first choice to play Frollo but if he was cast I would not complain. It would be interesting to see what how he would portale the character. What do you think Mads Mikkelsen for Frollo? Yay? Or Nay?

Also leading up to The Last Jedi and maybe after I’m going to more hypothetical casting using Star Wars actors so if you got a suggestion leave a comment.  Also any anti-suggestions are welcome,  like Jar Jar Binks as Frollo or Gringoire or Phoebus, maybe Esmeralda.


4 Thoughts on “Hypothetical Casting for Frollo: Mads Mikkelsen

    In this blog belonging to a Frollophile known as Christine Doctor Frollo is a photographic montage representing an adaptation situated in modern times of Hunchback casting Peter Capaldi as Frollo and Jenna Coleman as Esmeralda, based on the performances of Capaldi as the 12th Doctor in Doctor Who and Cardinal Richelieu In The Musketeers and Jenna as his companion in Doctor Who, Clara Oswald. I’d like to read a review of you about this choice of casting and some proto-editorial (more or less in the style of ‘Emerald, Lady of Red’) on the idea of recounting Hunchback in a time other than Medieval / Renaissance.
    I personally think that a historical context closer to working to recount this story are the Two Great World Wars of the twentieth century.

    Here is the picture:

      I’m sorry I didn’t reply last time.
      Oh that is intriguing. I will look into this casting and concept.

    Never thought of him as Frollo, but I can picture it… And his facial structure with those high cheekbones and austere look could work pretty well on the movie. Personally I think he has a very intimidating look about him, a look that would make childish Esmeralda fear him or a more womanly Esmeralda despise him.

    He is a good actor, that I can say, while he wouldn’t be my first choice for Frollo either, he would still make a good work.

    Missed your hypothetical casting. It’s fun to think of the possibilities.

    Well… clearly Jar Jar is the best pick for Esmeralda! XD In all seriousiness, I think that Oscar Isaac would be pretty good as Phoebus and Daisy Ridley would make an ok Emeralda
