Gillian Anderson to Guest Star on HANNIBAL

December 12, 2012 by  

Holy awesome guest casting, Batman: NBC confirms that former THE X-FILES star Gillian Anderson has signed on for a multi-episode guest arc on their new drama, HANNIBAL.

“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,” HANNIBAL creator Bryan Fuller said in a statement to (Who was first to break the news.) “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.”

Anderson is set to play Dr. Bedelia Du Maurier, who is the psychiatrist to titular character Dr. Hannibal Lecter (Mads Mikkelsen).

    YEP! Especially given that I might not have tuned in otherwise. If she’s willing to do it I expect it’s good.
