    Lars any relation to Mads? This could be cool.

    “Lindsay Lohan will guest-host E!’s Chelsea Lately next Monday, filling in for the late-night comedy’s emcee Chelsea Handler.”

    Do I watch the train wreck or just look away?

  3. CJ says:

    For anyone who is unfamiliar with Lars Mikkelsen, go watch Forbrydelsen (the original Danish “The Killing”) and Borgen! Since they’ve run on the BBC, there are versions to be found with English subtitles. Lars is amazing and I’m really looking forward to seeing him on Sherlock.

  4. Joe R says:

    Most importantly, Natalie Morales was Wendy in the tragically overlooked “The Middleman”! She never gets credit for that.

  5. Angela says:

    Man, “The Soup” is almost to 500 episodes already? Wow.
    Sounds fun! I live in the central time zone, so will have to see how that plays out on my television, but still, can’t wait.

    Lars Mikkelsen is awesome. So glad US audiences are going to be introduced to him – he’s got great subtlety in his acting
