NBC’s “Hannibal” is getting more fresh meat. “Veep”‘s Anna Chlumsky recently booked a guest-starring gig on the mid-season drama, TVLine reports. Chlumsky will play Miriam Lass, a young FBI trainee under the tutelage of Laurence Fishburne’s Jack Crawford.
The upcoming drama, a contemporary take on the characters from Thomas Harris’ “Red Dragon” novel, is written and executive-produced by Bryan Fuller (“Pushing Daisies”). It focuses on the fledgling relationship between FBI agent Will Graham (Hugh Dancy) and his mentor Dr. Hannibal Lecter (Mads Mikkelsen).
Chlumsky, best known for the My Girl films, has appeared on TV shows including “Army Wives,” “Law & Order: Special Victims Unit” and “Covert Affairs.” She remains a regular on HBO’s political comedy “Veep.”
