In further casting news, Anna Chlumsky has signed on for a guest starring spot on HANNIBAL, opposite Hugh Dancey (as Will Graham) and Mads Mikkelsen (as Hannibal Lecter).
The VEEP and MY GIRL star will play Miriam Lass, a young FBI trainee under the tutelage of Laurence Fishburne’s Jack Crawford. No word on whether or not she'll have her liver eaten with fava beans in a nice chianti, but this being a "guest spot" I'm leaning toward the possibility. Think about that-- Vada Sultenfuss could be one of HANNIBAL's inaugeral Red Shirts.
HANNIBAL, written by executive producer Bryan Fuller, sports a pilot directed by David Slade. Other guest stars include Eddie Izzard, who will be playing a character claiming to be "The Chesapeake Ripper." NBC still hasn't released a premiere date for the show and its subsequent episodes, so keep on the lookout for that news to drop anytime now. While you're doing so, have enjoy a revealing glimpse of Chlumsky's "girls" below.
