Eddie Izzard (Oceans 12 and 13, Dressed To Kill, Velvet Goldmine) is joining NBC’s contemporary Hannibal Lecter series, “Hannibal,” as a guest star. He’ll be playing Hannibal Lecter’s cellmate. Wonder how that will work out for him?
Like “Hannibal”‘s Caroline Dhavernas, Gina Torres, Molly Shannon, Chelan Simons and Ellen Greene, Izzard previously worked with “Hannibal” exec producer Bryan Fuller on last months “Mockingbird Lane” pilot turned Halloween special.
“Hannibal,” which is based on characters from Thomas Harris’ “Red Dragon,” 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. It’s slated to bow at midseason.
