We really have been spoilt over the past few weeks, since it was announced that the third season of Hannibal will debut this summer.
The most fresh casting news is that Glenn Fleshler will appear as Mason Verger’s twisted personal physician Cordell.
His face will certainly be familiar to many as the terrifying killer from True Detective; one of the finest shows of last year.
It seems like truly inspired casting once again from the creative team, adding a face that can really blend into this twisted new world of Hannibal Lecter. Expect him to play a larger role than in the Ridley Scott film, and have much more influence on Mason’s already twisted mind.
This adds to Rutina Wesley (of True Blood notoriety) coming on board as Reba McClane, the love interest of one Francis Dolarhyde (Richard Armitage).
Joe Anderson has also been keen to show off his new role as the re-cast Verger with his new face (pictured below)
