Mads Dittmann Mikkelsen ( listen ; born 22 November 1965) is a Danish actor. Originally a gymnast and dancer, he began a career as an actor in 1996. He rose to fame in Denmark as Tonny the drug dealer in the first two films of the Pusher film trilogy and in his longest running role as a brash yet sensitive policeman in Niels Arden Oplev's Danish television series Rejseholdet (Unit One) (2000–2003).
On the fact that he is voted "the sexiest man in Denmark" over and over: "I'd rather be voted 'the sexiest man in Denmark' than 'the ugliest man in Denmark'."
On his 1937 Danish Nimbus motorcycle: It is like something Steve McQueen would ride. I love the freedom and it doesn't go quite as fast as a modern bike, which pleases my wife.
I'm a beer man. I tried to drink whiskey and Scotch but I don't get it. It smells like a girl who didn't shower and just splashed a lot of perfume on.
