Per TV Line, Ellen Muth (pictured above; “Dead Like Me”) has been added to the cast of NBC’s “Hannibal” as a guest star. In an homage to her “Dead Like Me” character ‘George’, she’ll be playing ‘Georgia” on the cannibal-centric new show.
The Bryan Fuller-produced drama is being billed as a contemporary take on the characters from Thomas Harris’ “Red Dragon” novel that focuses on the fledgling relationship between FBI agent Will Graham (Hugh Dancy) and Lecter (Mads Mikkelsen), his mentor. Other key cast members include Lance Henriksen (Near Dark, roughly 8% of horror movies in general), Gillian Anderson (“X-Files”), Gina Torres (“Firefly”) and “Wonderfalls”’ Caroline Dhavernas.
NBC has yet to schedule a premiere date for “Hannibal.”
