I am ashamed to not be caught up on “Hannibal.” I haven’t watched any of this season yet, but after hearing how it’s even better than last year I promise to buy it on iTunes and check it out ASAP. In the meantime, while you wait for Friday’s episode 2.09 “Shiizakana”, we’ve got a little treat for you.
If you saw Ridley Scott’s 2000 film Hannibal, or if you’ve read the book by Thomas Harris, you’re familiar with the batsh*t crazy character of Mason Verger. Director David Slade has circulated a picture of Michael Pitt (Funny Games, The Dreamers) as the character. Granted, this is before that unfortunate business with the pigs, but it’s still nice to see how his visage looks before it’s been digested.
The character is being described as “Joker-esque”, which means absolutely nothing to me. Best to just wait and see.
