NBC Casts Hannibal

Bryan Fuller's series "Hannibal" has cast its lead. Mads Mikkelsen, who you may remember as the villain in "Casino Royale" has landed the role.  

Fuller recently told Entertainment Weekly: “It’s before he was incarcerated, so he’s more of a peacock,” Fuller says. “There is a cheery disposition to our Hannibal. He’s not being telegraphed as a villain. If the audience didn’t know who he was, they wouldn’t see him coming. What we have is Alfred Hitchcock’s principle of suspense — show the audience the bomb under the table and let them sweat when it’s going to go boom. So the audience knows who Hannibal is so we don’t have to overplay his villainy. We get to subvert his legacy and give the audience twists and turns.”
