Meet the new Hannibal Lecter…

June 6th, 2012 by Marc Comments

Well we’ve been talking about the new Hannibal TV series coming for a while now… but at last, we have our Hannibal Lecter

Danish actor Mads Mikkelsen, fresh from his Best Actor win at Cannes, will play the cannibalistic Doctor in NBC’s upcoming series.
We are big fans of Mikkelsen and reckon this is an inspired bit of casting. The Series itself will take play pre-Red Dragon and will focus on Lecter and Will Graham (Hugh Darcy) as they solve the toughest serial killer cases together… all the while Lecter will be hiding his murderous nature.
The series will be produced by Bryan Fuller who brought us Pushing Daisies and the superb Dead Like Me.
No definite date on whn the 13 episode first season will begin filming.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
