Kristofer Hivju (Tormund) plays his own twin in new movie, and more celeb stuff


Kristofer Hivju has a twin?! Well, not exactly. But this is as close as we’re ever likely to get. May we present: TWIN, which according to Deadline tells the suspenseful story of “a young mother who persuades her dead husband’s identical twin to take on his brother’s identity after a tragic accident.” Not only did Kristofer Hivju have a double role in the series, but he also co-created it!

Looks intense. If you prefer something sillier, here’s Hivju doing a twin bit on the Norwegian talk show Senkveld:

TWIN was screened at the Cannes Festival earlier this year. According to Broadway World, it “will premiere on MHz Networks’ streaming service MHz Choice [on] February 4, 2020 and on DVD March 17, 2020.”

In other Scandinavian actor news, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau (Jaime Lannister) has joined the cast of a Danish romantic drama called A Taste of HungerDeadline reports that the film is about a culinarily inclined couple who make sacrifices to achieve their ultimate goal: a Michelin star.

Coster-Waldau playing a chef? Yes, please. A Taste of Hunger is in pre-production now.
