SCULLY! Fans of horror and sci-fi just got a lot more excited about Bryan Fuller’s HANNIBAL. The NBC series has scored Gillian Anderson for a multi-episode arc as Dr. Bedelia Du Maurier, Hannibal’s very own therapist.
Series creator Bryan Fuller released the following statement: “Every therapist needs their own head examined and we are ecstatic that Gillian Anderson has chosen Hannibal to mark her return to American television after 10 years to portray Dr. Lecter’s personal psychiatrist…Her intelligence and sophistication, not to mention her pedigree of ground-breaking TV, make her the perfect actress to match wits and psychological manipulations with one of the greatest villains of pop culture. I couldn’t be more excited.”
The show has yet to nab a premiere date but has netted an impressive cast that includes Hugh Dancy, Mads Mikkelsen, Laurence Fishburne, Eddie Izzard, Gina Torres, Molly Shannon, Hettienne Park, and Caroline Dhavernas.
