Also in 2008, Mikkelsen, along with fellow James Bond villain Richard Kiel, was invited by Swiss watchmaker Swatch to Bregenz, Austria to present the Swatch 007 Villain Collection. Mikkelsen had a large supporting role in the 2010 remake of the film Clash Of The Titans, starring as Draco, the leader of the king's guard. Mikkelsen will co-star alongside Harvey Keitel and Roy Dupuis in the Rue Morgue Cinema horror western Cut Throats Nine. Mads Mikkelsen serves as Goodwill Ambassador for Refugees United.
