Death Stranding looks to co-star Mads Mikkelsen - rumour

Hideo Kojima's favourite actor.

Hannibal actor Mads Mikkelsen appears to have a role alongside Norman Reedus in Hideo Kojima's mysterious PS4-exclusive Death Stranding.

The acclaimed director tweeted the following photo from a motion-capture studio working on the title:

Not much on its own, right? But then a fan of Mikkelsen posted the following Instagram photo of himself with the Danish actor wearing the same orange hoodie with a grey lining.

This alone could be a coincidence, but the fan posted a few more details of his exchange with Mikkelsen. It turns out he ran into the actor in Sheffield where he was "acting in a video game."

Furthermore, he stated it was "a Japanese game".

Corroborating this scenario further is the fact that Kojima tweeted last year that Mikkelsen is his "favourite actor."

Of course this could all be coincidence. Lots of people wear orange hoodies with grey linings and work on Japanese video games, right?
