We're used to seeing as the big screen incarnation of famed serial killer Hannibal Lecter, but here's our latest look at in the infamous role. Take a look below:

(via IGN)

Principle photography has just started for this NBC spinoff TV series. It will see Mikkelsen play a contemporary and younger Hannibal, who will team up with FBI agent Will Graham () to search for a dangerous serial killer. Of course, Graham is unaware of Hannibal's darker and twisted alter-ego.

Of course, this isn't the first time Mikkelsen has played a twisted character. He shone out as the villainous Le Chiffre in 's first Bond movie, Casino Royale. If he can recapture some of that performance, NBC might just be on to one killer show.

What do you think? Could Mikkelsen become the new face of Hannibal Lecter? Give us your opinion below.
