Catching up on Hannibal news from last month: season three won't arrive on NBC until this summer...
Whether it's technically a delay or just how things are unrolling for Hannibal season three, the show's Television Critics' Association panel held last month confirmed that Lecter and pals won't be back on NBC until the summer. This might be old news to many, but we missed it the first time around so reporting it now in the spirit of better late than never.
Seasons one and two of Bryan Fuller's superlative psychological horror show made their debuts in April and February, leading creatures of habit to expect season three to premiere around the same time in the calendar. Not so. They're taking a little extra time with Hannibal's third run, and summer is its pencilled-in Eta.
Bryan Fuller said last year to think of the third season opener essentially as »
Title: Supremacy Director: Deon Taylor Starring: Joe Anderson, Dawn Olivieri, Lela Rochon, Robin Bobeau, Danny Glover and Evan Ross Resolutely defending your beliefs and taking firm action to uphold those views, no matter how drastic they may be, can often lead to harrowing conflicts with those determined enough to righteously defend their contradictory principles. Director Deon Taylor’s new drama, ‘Supremacy,’ which is now playing in select theaters nationwide, fearlessly chronicles the brazen and unwavering antics of supremacists who firmly set out to spread their ideas to their community, without any regard to how demeaning their principles are to many of their neighbors. It isn’t until the film’s ruthless antagonists begin [ Read More ]

Wgn America has announced an April 5th premiere date for the second season of Wgn America's "Salem".
The second season will open at the dawn of the witch war as Mary Sibley (Janet Montgomery) faces off against adversaries vying for her throne. Lucy Lawless and Stuart Townsend join the cast this season. [Source: EW]
According to TV Line, the character is "quiet, very intelligent and definitely creepy...attentive and gentle with Mason. He's a professional who cares about his work, but we get a sense he might be as sadistic as his boss — and a perfect fit to become his potential henchman."

Deon Taylor's racially-charged psychological thriller "Supremacy," which made its world premiere at the Los Angeles Film Festival, last year, to critical acclaim, opens theatrically, this Friday, January 30, 2015, via distributor Well Go USA Entertainment. Director Deon Taylor’s dramatic thriller "Supremacy," centers on any black family’s worst nightmare: being held hostage by an Aryan Brotherhood member just released from a 14-year prison stint. Based on a true story, the film follows Tully (Joe Anderson), as he is just released from prison, and is picked up by an Aryan Brotherhood groupie, Doreen (Dawn »

Multiple generations of an African American family slowly mollify the gun-crazed neo-Nazi (Joe Anderson) holding them hostage in the dour, dreary drama Supremacy. Tully (Anderson) is escorted from jail by Doreen (Dawn Olivieri), a jittery, drug-abusing Aryan groupie, to a meeting with his associates. But after Tully fatally shoots a cop, they hide out in a backwoods house, where they terrorize the elderly Mr. Walker (Danny Glover) and his close-knit brood. For the next 90 or so minutes, Glover — playing yet another gentle, whispery sage — and the various relatives preach platitudes about love and tolerance to their captor, who tells them to "shut the fuck up" or taunts them with racial slurs. Very little else happens. Director Deon Taylor punctuates »

Question: Hi, Aus! Totally love Ask Ausiello. I read it religiously. I would love some scoop on my latest obsession, Htgawm. —Andrew
Ausiello: There are no sex scenes in Thursday’s midseason premiere. I. Kid. You. Not. The episode is coitus-free. But what the hour lacks in nooky, it makes up for in awkward morning-after energy (I’m looking at you, Bonnie and Asher) and additional Murder Night flashbacks (you’ll learn just how involved Annalise was in »
Deon Taylor's racially-charged psychological thriller "Supremacy," which made its world premiere at the Los Angeles Film Festival, last year, to critical acclaim, opens theatrically, this Friday, January 30, 2015, via distributor Well Go USA Entertainment. Combining high-octane performances by Joe Anderson, Danny Glover and Lela Rochon, with a script that privileges the perspective of a tormented Aryan Brotherhood member, the film is sure to spark some dialogue. I caught up with Taylor to discuss the film, how his background directing horror movies elevated the project, and his experience working with the lovely Lela »

She’s best known for playing the headstrong Tara in True Blood, but for her next role Rutina Wesley encounters a human monster in the third season of Hannibal. Wesley plays Reba McClane, infamous to readers of the Thomas Harris source novels as the woman who got close to Francis Dolarhyde.
Unbeknownst to her, he is the Tooth Fairy, the serial killer at the heart of first Lecter bestseller Red Dragon – however her blindness makes her literally unseeing as to his true nature. Richard Armitage has been cast as Dolarhyde. The characters were portrayed by Emily Watson and Ralph Fiennes in the 2002 movie adaptation and by Joan Allen and Tom Noonan in Michael Mann’s 1986 version Manhunter.
Wesley and Armitage join new cast member Joe Anderson, who replaces Michael Pitt as Mason Verger. It looks like showrunner Bryan Fuller is really starting to blend the worlds of the series and the books, »

With HBO’s True Blood coming to an end last summer, Rutina Wesley, longtime cast member of the Southern supernatural series, is lined up for another horror show. This time around, though, Wesley will encounter human monsters rather than creatures of the night, as she’s set to join the cast of Hannibal for the third season, playing a character from Thomas Harris’ Red Dragon and its two film adaptations.
TVLine reports that Rutina Wesley, whom True Blood fans know as Tara Mae Thornton, is set to co-star in Hannibal Season 3 in the recurring role of Reba McClane, a blind woman who becomes the romantic interest of Francis Dolarhyde, aka The Tooth Fairy serial killer, who in turn will be played by Richard Armitage (Thorin Oakenshield in The Hobbit films). Reba McClane is a key character in Thomas Harris’ 1981 novel, Red Dragon, and was previously played by Joan Allen in »

Wesley will play Reba McClane, the blind woman who enters into a relationship with the psychotic Francis Dolarhyde (Richard Armitage) and helps soothe his murderous urges. Wesley takes on a role played by Joan Allen in Michael Mann's "Manhunter" and Emily Watson in Brett Ratner's "Red Dragon".
Will Graham (Hugh Dancy) will come into contact with Dolarhyde from around the eighth episode of the third season. The Tooth Fairy is the latest addition to the cast which this year will also include Nina Arianda as Will Graham's wife Molly, Joe Anderson as the mutilated Mason Verger, Gillian Anderson as Bedelia Du Maurier, and of course Mads Mikkelsen as Hannibal Lecter himself.

She’ll play Reba McClane, a blind woman who enters into a relationship with the psychotic Francis Dolarhyde (Richard Armitage), and helps soothe his murderous urges — at least at first. Will Graham (Hugh Dancy) will come into contact with Dolarhyde (aka “The Tooth Fairy”) around the eighth episode of the third season.
Also joining the cast in season three is Nina Arianda, who will play Will Graham’s wife, Molly. The new episodes will also revisit the mutilated Mason Verger (with Joe Anderson replacing Michael Pitt in the role) and a number of other characters who had unfortunate encounters with Mads Mikkelsen’s titular killer.
Variety sister site TVLine first reported Wesley’s casting.
“Hannibal” will return to NBC this summer. »

It’s been eight months since “Hannibal” ended season two with a bloodbath of epic proportions — and by the time the cult thriller returns to NBC this summer for season three, Dr. Lecter (Mads Mikkelsen) and his discerning palate will have been off our screens for more than a year. Thankfully, the network has devised a way to ease our separation anxiety with an atmospheric new trailer — a tasty morsel that should go down like liver and fava beans with a nice Chianti.
The new footage sees Will Graham (Hugh Dancy) tracking his friend-turned-foe across the globe (most notably to Florence, Italy, where some exteriors have reportedly been shot) a year after Hannibal escaped with Dr. Bedelia Du Maurier (Gillian Anderson) in the final moments of last season.

To put it simply, the second season of "Hannibal" ended in a blood bath, with the fates of key characters up in the air. How anyone survived is beyond me, but I'm willing to suspend some disbelief for season three, because the NBC's series is as good as anything on your favorite premium channel, and today a new trailer has landed. Don't worry about spoilers, as this one is heavy on mood and not so much on plot. What we can glean is Mads Mikkelsen's Hannibal Lecter is on the run...sort of. His dark secret is still only the knowledge of a few people, as far as we can tell, given that the trailer shows him attending dinner parties and concert recitals. But Will Graham (Hugh Dancy) is on his tail for vengeance forgiveness. Is it a ploy to trick Hannibal? And what about Mason Verger (Michael Pitt has been recast, »

We have to wait until the Summer to see the return of NBC's "Hannibal" to screens, but today the network has offered us a treat with the first trailer for the upcoming third season. The first footage focuses on Will Graham's hunt for Lecter, the latter now residing in Florence with Dr. Bedelia Du Maurier (Gillian Anderson).
All three characters are seen in the footage, along with our first glimpse of Tao Okamoto as Lady Murusaki. No sightings of Richard Armitage as Francis Dolarhyde or Joe Anderson as the now disfigured Mason Verger as yet.
Nina Arianda ("30 Rock") has also joined the cast in a recurring role this season. With the new season jumping forward, Arianda will play a single mother named Molly who is also Will Graham's wife. Kim Greist and Mary Louise-Parker have played the role in previous screen adaptations of "Red Dragon".

“Our minds can concoct all sorts of scenarios when we don’t want to believe something. We construct fairy tales… and we accept them.” A teaser trailer for Season 3 of NBC’s Hannibal has been released, giving us our first look at Will Graham (Hugh Dancy), Dr. Hannibal Lecter (Mads Mikkelsen), and more in the drastically different third season of Bryan Fuller’s serial killer series.
Season 3 of Hannibal will debut this summer. It was recently revealed that Tony award-winning Nina Arianda (Broadway’s Venus in Fur, Rob the Mob, Midnight in Paris) will play a recurring role in the third season. Arianda portrays a character named Molly—a strong single mother who is a romantic interest for one key character.

"Hannibal" season 3 will be a little late for dinner — as in summer. NBC executives had previously suggested that Bryan Fuller's Hannibal Lecter prequel series would likely return very late in the season, and at press tour today, NBC entertainment chairman Robert Greenblatt said it would actually be on in the summer. "It's a show we love," Greenblatt said. "We love it. We also love summer," noting that it would be part of a lineup that could also include David Duchovny chasing Charles Manson in "Aquarius" and Zachary Levi in "Heroes: Reborn." "It’s been critically acclaimed by a few of you in the room, if not many," he added. (Technically, this may be true; "Hannibal" finished 12th overall in the HitFix Television Critics Poll, but with only votes from eight critics.) Hannibal's first season debuted late in spring, and the show wasn't even renewed for a second until »

“The Hobbit” star will play Francis Dolarhyde, a serial killer with a penchant for biting his victims — earning him the nickname “The Tooth Fairy.” Dolarhyde was the primary antagonist in Thomas Harris’ “Red Dragon” novel and subsequent film adaptations “Manhunter” and “Red Dragon,” which featured Tom Noonan and Ralph Fiennes in the role, respectively. Armitage is expected to debut in episode eight.
Also joining the “Hannibal” cast in season three is Joe Anderson, who will be replacing Michael Pitt in the role of Mason Verger. Recurring guest star Gillian Anderson has been promoted to series regular for the new season.
Armitage’s casting was first reported by Variety sister site TVLine.

The Tooth Fairy is a monster… at least in Thomas Harris’ 1981 novel, Red Dragon, as well as the 1999 Brett Ratner film of the same name. Instead of carefully placing money underneath the pillows of slumbering children, this Tooth Fairy slays entire families on the night of the full moon, and his skin-tearing teeth and paranoia-driven rage are coming to Season 3 of NBC’s Hannibal TV series.
TVLine reports that Richard Armitage (Thorin Oakenshield in The Hobbit films) will play The Tooth Fairy serial killer, aka Francis Dolarhyde, for at least six episodes of Hannibal’s upcoming third season, which will debut sometime in NBC’s midseason schedule. The Tooth Fairy was portrayed by Ralph Fiennes in 2002’s Red Dragon.
Recently, another Hannibal roster move was revealed, as Bryan Fuller cast Joe Anderson as the villainous Mason Verger after Michael Pitt decided to drop out of the role, likely due to a busy schedule. »
