We knew eventually we'd be seeing Hugh Dancy's Will Graham donning a very SILENCE OF THE LAMBS-esque mask thanks to early "Hannibal" promo materials, but today brings an official look at the man and mask. Yep, this is very LAMBS indeed; the series has never been shy about calling to mind the movie that started it all, which is rather brave of the creative team - not to mention fun for fans. Check out the new pic below.
This follows Friday's exciting news that Michael Pitt has joined the series as iconic Hannibal adversary Mason Verger.
The dark and haunting series "Hannibal" returns for a second season with more shocking revelations and psychological cat and mouse games. Will Graham (Hugh Dancy) is locked in a mental asylum accused of Hannibal Lecter's crimes (Mads Mikkelsen). Now that Will sees Hannibal for what he truly is, he faces a fight to prove his own sanity and convince those closest to him he is innocent of murder. Jack Crawford (Laurence Fishburne) is dealing with his own feelings about Will and whether his protégé is in fact a cold-blooded killer. Looking for answers, Jack turns to Hannibal, a man he has come to trust. With Will locked up, Hannibal becomes Jack's new consultant on cases. Hannibal is torn between self-preservation and his desire to keep Will close to him, despite advice from his psychiatrist, Bedelia Du Maurier (Gillian Anderson), to stay away. The deadly dance between these characters continues to turn in startling and unexpected ways, in a season that will show that nothing can ever be the same again.
Season 2 of "Hannibal" premieres Friday, February 28 at 10/9c on NBC.
