THR is reporting that Gillian Anderson has been confirmed for the cast of NBC's "Hannibal."

As first reported by EW, Anderson will play Dr. Bedelia Du Maurier, the therapist to Mads Mikkelsen's Dr. Hannibal Lecter in the drama set to debut in the first half of 2013. She'll appear in three episodes of the series.

"Every therapist needs their own head examined and we are ecstatic that Gillian Anderson has chosen Hannibal to mark her return to American television after 10 years to portray Dr. Lecter's (Mads Mikkelsen) personal psychiatrist," Fuller said in a statement. "Her intelligence and sophistication, not to mention her pedigree of ground-breaking TV, make her the perfect actress to match wits and psychological manipulations with one of the greatest villains of pop culture. I couldn't be more excited."
