Thor 2 Actor Cast As Staring Role In NBC's Hannibal Lecter Series

Actor Mads Mikkelsen, cast in an unknown villainous role in next years superhero flick, Thor 2, will also villainize in an upcoming NBC drama, simply titled Hannibal, a re-imaging of horror movie icon, Dr. Hannibal Lecter, the villain and main character in a book series by author Thomas Harris, along with a series of film adaptations.

 Coincidentally, he is not the only Thor actor to have played Lecter. Anthony Hopkins, before staring as Odin in Thor, had performed as Lecter in The Silence Of The Lambs, in which he earned an Oscar, as well as the sequel, also titled Hannibal, and one of the prequels (Red Dragon). Like Mikkelsen, Hopkins is set to star (or in his case, reprise his role in) Thor 2.

 The release date to NBC's Hannibal is currently unknown. The series will star Mads Mikkelsen, and Hugh Dancy. Series created by Brad Fuller. The first season will span across 13 episodes. Pilot directed by David Slade. Based on the characters created by Thomas Harris.

  I think they pretty much covered all the bases with the Hannibal films. The TV series will just water down the character, IMO.

Actress Caroline Dhavernas Cast As Dr. Alana Bloom In NBC's 'Hannibal'

Get ready to pass out the fava beans, because NBC is planning on releasing a Television series about Hannibal Lecter, who is arguably the greatest movie serial killer of all time, in early 2013. Recently cast is an actress named Caroline Dhavernas (in the picture below), who is set to portray Dr. Alana Bloom, known in the previous books and films in the Hannibal Lecter Series as Dr. Alan Bloom. Alan Bloom isn't the only male character becoming a female for the series. Character Freddy Lounds will become Fredricka Lounds.

 

The series will star Mads Mikkelsen as Dr. Hannibal Lecter, Hugh Dancy as FBI profiler Will Graham, and Laurence Fishburne as Jack Crawford. The pilot will be directed by David Slade. The series will be based on the characters of the Thomas Harris novel Red Dragon. The first few seasons will take place before Red Dragon (therefore, before Lecter's incarceration), and season four is planned to adapt the novel. This is the third time Red Dragon has been adapted making it the Hannibal Lecter novel with the most adaptations. The first was the 1986 box office failure, titled Manhunter, the second being the 2002 film of the same name, which served as a prequel to The Silence Of The Lambs and Hannibal.

Actress Lara Jean Chorostecki Cast In NBC's 'Hannibal'

Actress Lara Jean Chorosteki has recently been cast as tabloid blogger Fredricka Lounds in NBCs Hannibal Lecter TV series, a role previously portrayed by Stephen Lang in the 1986 film, Manhunter, and by Philip Seymour Hoffman in 2002s Red Dragon. The series, simply titled Hannibal, is based on the Hannibal Lecter novels written by Thomas Harris.

 Oddly, the gender of the "Fredricka" Lounds character has changed. In the novels, as well as previous adaptations, the character was a male journalist named Freddy Lounds. Another male character in the series, Alan Bloom, has also had a gender switch, now named Alana Bloom.

 Official Synopsis: One of the most fascinating literary characters comes to life on television for the first time: psychiatrist-turned-serial killer, Dr. Hannibal Lecter. In this new drama from Bryan Fuller ("Pushing Daisies," "Heroes"), based on the characters from Thomas Harris' classic novels, we see where this incredible story began.

Will Graham is a gifted criminal profiler who is on the hunt for a serial killer with the FBI. Graham's unique way of thinking gives him the astonishing ability to empathize with anyone -even psychopaths. He seems to know what makes them tick. But when the mind of the twisted killer he's pursuing is too complicated for even Will to comprehend, he enlists the help of Dr. Lecter, one of the premier psychiatric minds in the country. Armed with the uncanny expertise of the brilliant doctor, Will and Hannibal (known as a serial killer only to the audience) form a brilliant partnership and it seems there's no villain they can't catch. If Will only knew...

Starring brilliant young actor Hugh Dancy as Will Graham, "Hannibal" will breathe new life into a deadly classic.

NBC Cast Hettienne Park As Potential Love Interest For Will Graham In 'Hannibal'

The Hollywood Reporter is reporting that actress Hettienne Park (Bride Wars, Young Adult) has been cast in their upcoming Hannibal Lecter TV Series (simply titled Hannibal) as Beverly Katz, a crime scene investigator who is likely to become a love interest to Will Graham, one of the two main characters of the series, the other being the title character, the cannibalistic psychiatrist, Dr. Hannibal Lecter.


Hollywood Reporter released the following information on the character: Beverly Katz will be a crime scene investigator who specializes in working with fibers and works with two other investigators who, with her help, piece evidence together. Katz confronts Will Graham, when she first meets him, about his unusual role with the FBI and flags the special treatment he receives. As the series progresses, a romance is likely to form.

Vera Farmiga Cast As Norma Bates In A&E's 'Bates Motel' TV Series

A&E has cast actress Vera Farminga (seen below) as Norma Bates, mother of the psychotic serial killer, Norman Bates, in Bates Motel, a TV series prequel to the legendary 1960 horror film, Psycho. Norma Bates has previously been portrayed by the voice of Virginia Gregg in the 1960 classic, and by Olivia Hussey in Psycho IV: The Beginning.

Bates Motel is not related to the 1986 TV movie of the same name, which it itself was a spin-off to Psycho. The A&E TV series will be about the relationship between Norma and her son, Norman Bates, taking place before her death, which would one day lead to the insanity of future serial killer Norman Bates, as seen in Psycho. The series will likely ignore the events of the previous less-than applausable prequel, Psycho IV: The Beginning. It doesn't seem like a coincidence that this series is happening the same time as NBC's upcoming series, Hannibal, loose prequel to another horror classic, The Silence Of The Lambs.

A&E Finds Its Norman Bates in a Former Child Star

Norman Bates has officially checked in to the “Bates Motel.”

A&E cast Freddie Highmore to play the famed serial killer of Hitchcock lore, according to The Hollywood Reporter. Who is Highmore you ask? He is best known for playing Charlie in the Johnny Depp version of “Charlie and the Chocolate Factory,” but will now play a decidedly more intense role as the younger version of Bates. Highmore also had roles in the movies “Finding Neverland” and “August Rush.”

While the original Hitchcock film “Psycho” features Bates as a loner, the prequel series will be more crowded. Vera Farmiga had already been cast as his mother Norma, and and the lead role as Charlie in Tim Burton’s Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory, joins the previously cast Vera Farmiga, who will play his mother Norma, and Max Thieriot, who will play Norman’s older brother.

When it hits the cable channel, the series will take a look at the backstory of Norman’s relationship with his mother and why he became a killer.
