That is Mads Mikkelsen. He played Dr. Hannibal Lecter in the TV show Hannibal. While there are other good choices, Mads just has those hard planes to his face, and he can be considered by many women, but not all women, to be handsome. He really looks batshit dangerous and that's what Lan is!
I do like Lan having ice blue eyes. How important is that to you guys though? Can they change his eye color with contacts or cgi?
