Her latest film "Kelly & Cal" (in theaters Sept. 19 from IFC Films) sees Lewis continuing to add to her cache of layered performances by playing Kelly, a former punk rocker turned s...

Deadly Dinner Chat With TV's 'Hannibal' Mads Mikkelsen
Stepping into a role previously inhabited by others is in itself quite a daunting task, but when that role is the infamous part of Hannibal “The Cannibal” Lecter the chance to create something original seems impossible.

But could else anyone fill the shoes of such an iconic serial killer? Enter Mads Mikkelsen. As a more calculated and intellectually...
