Mads Mikkelsen Recalls The Time He Walked Out Of The Fantastic Four Audition

Mads Mikkelsen, recently seen in Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, gave an interview yesterday to Short List where he recalled the time he walked out of an audition for Fantastic Four.

You've spoken about auditioning for Fantastic Four and finding it an excruciating process. Can you remember any other particularly bad auditions?

I've had tons of them. We've all been there. We all show up and it's a little office room with a desk and some books and they want you to do a scene where you have two lines – maybe not even two lines – maybe just "Bleurgh!" or "Get back!" And you're hiding behind a palm tree that's not there. It's like, "Guys, couldn't you have picked a different kind of scene to this? This is fucking mad." You feel like an idiot.

Have you actually walked out of any?

I think I walked out on the Fantastic Four one. I think I actually said, "I can't do it. It's not about you, I'm sorry, this is wrong."

This follows up on a January interview he did with Xposé, recalling how the audition embarrassed.

However, Mikkelsen also recalled one tale of his audition for superhero movie Fantastic Four. After being asked in the casting office to pretend to extend his arms like a rubber man, he was so embarrassed that he thought, "I can't do this anymore."

We'd be embarrassed too if our agent told us we had to audition for Fantastic Four.
