Lara Jean Chorosteck (“Camelot”, Antiviral) has joined “Hannibal”, NBC’s contemporary series take on the characters from Thomas Harris’ “Red Dragon” novel, reports TVLine.
She joins Laurence Fishburne (just cast as Jack Crawford) as one of the cast’s most recent inductees. She’ll be playing tabloid reporter Freddie Lounds. The character was previously portrayed by Stephen Lang in 1986’s Manhunter and Philip Seymour Hoffman in 2002’s Red Dragon. I guess it’s kind of interesting that she’s taking on a role previously inhabited by the opposite sex, but I’m a fan of hiring the right actor for the role – regardless of gender.
The project, written and exec-produced by Pushing Daisies creator Bryan Fuller and slated to debut at midseason, centers on the budding relationship between FBI agent Will Graham (played by Hugh Dancy) and his mentor Dr. Hannibal Lecter (Mads Mikkelsen) – who are re-introduced at the beginning of their budding relationship.
