I could not agree more. From what I’ve seen his on screen acting is also solid. I’m sorry the picture isn’t showing up for you. Here, see if this link works: https://photos.app.goo.gl/pyBPfseZbpyAjpcZ8
Yep, that works! Thanks. It’s a pity you couldn’t make his eyes fully red, but this is a great indication of what Mikkelsen’s live action Thrawn would look like. Personally, I think maybe a small chin prosthetic to make it sharper (as long as it’s not uncomfortable for Lars) and he’s there.
I’d prefer animation for a Rebels sequel - I think it’s more faithful to the original show, and you can do much more ambitious projects that way. But if they’re going the live action route, Lars Mikkelsen is the man to bring Thrawn to the big screen.
EDIT: also for some reason, the original picture is NOW showing up all of a sudden. 🤷♂️ Sorry if you had to go to any trouble putting it on google photos!
