More casting news for “Hannibal” has come in as EW is reporting that sci-fi fan favorite Gillian Anderson of “X-Files” fame is set to join Bryan Fuller’s NBC serial killer thriller “Hannibal.” Read on to find out just what she’ll be doing.
In a multi-episode arc, Anderson is going to play murderous psychiatrist Dr. Hannibal Lecter’s (Mads Mikkelsen) own therapist! Oh, yes. This is gonna be fun!
One of the most fascinating literary characters comes to life on television for the first time: psychiatrist-turned-serial killer Dr. Hannibal Lecter. In this new drama from Bryan Fuller (“Pushing Daisies,” “Heroes”) based on the characters from Thomas Harris’ classic novels, we see where this incredible story began.
Will Graham is a gifted criminal profiler who is on the hunt for a serial killer with the FBI. Graham’s unique way of thinking gives him the astonishing ability to empathize with anyone – even psychopaths. He seems to know what makes them tick. But when the mind of the twisted killer he’s pursuing is too complicated for even Will to comprehend, he enlists the help of Dr. Lecter, one of the premier psychiatric minds in the country. Armed with the uncanny expertise of the brilliant doctor, Will and Hannibal (known as a serial killer only to the audience) form a brilliant partnership, and it seems there’s no villain they can’t catch. If Will only knew…
Starring Hugh Dancy as Will Graham and Mads Mikkelsen as Hannibal Lecter, “Hannibal” will breathe new life into a deadly classic. Laurence Fishburne and Caroline Dhavernas co-star along with Molly Shannon, Anna Chlumsky, Chelan Simons, Ellen Greene, Gina Torres, and Raul Esparza
