Hannibal Casting Scoop, Gillian Anderson will Co-star in the NBC Thriller


It’s been 10 years since Gillian Anderson attempted to “debunk the X-Files of Fox Mulder” but the actress still has a huge sci-fi following. NBC has made a great casting choice for their upcoming series, Hannibal.


Our Hannibal casting scoop comes from James Hibbard’s  Inside TV exclusive on December 12th, 2012.



Hugely exciting casting news; Gillian Anderson to join Bryan Fuller’s Hannibal.

In a multi-episode arc on the upcoming NBC drama, Anderson is going to play Dr. Bedelia Du Maurier — murderous psychiatrist Dr. Hannibal Lecter’s (Mads Mikkelsen) own therapist.

“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,” Fuller said in a statement. “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.”




There is no current premier date for Hannibal on NBC; rumor is the series will air in the spring. TV Film News will keep you posted.
