Trying to get news about upcoming Star Wars films is like trying to get blood from a stone. But then you”re just sitting there, minding your own business, and Mads Mikkelsen (Hannibal, Doctor Strange) pops onto British news channel Sky News and drops a bomb about who he plays in Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. Bless you, Mikkelsen.
WARNING: SPOILERS BEYOND THIS POINT. SERIOUSLY.

“I can say absolutely nothing about it. Well, I can, but I”d have to kill you and the entire audience.” A little think like potential murder could never stop Mikkelsen OR Star Wars fans, though. With very little prompting from the host, he continued, “I wasn”t really sure if I was wearing a stormtrooper outfit or anything like that. I read the script was very beautiful. There”s this lovely, young, strong, woman, and I play her…father.”
There you have it, folks. Mads Mikkelsen is playing Mr. Erso in Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. You know what that means. Jyn Erso”s dad is evil. Because it wouldn”t be Star Wars without parent issues.
