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".

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.

Videos Watch the Hannibal Season 3 Teaser Trailer
TVLine had learned exclusively that the actress is joining Hannibal‘s third season in the pivotal recurring role of Reba McClane, a blind woman who catches the eye of Francis Dolarhyde — Aka The Tooth Fairy (played by The Hobbit‘s Richard Armitage) — and represents his best chance at humanity.
In the first teaser trailer for season 3, Will Graham (Hugh Dancy) obsessively still on the hunt of Hannibal Lecter (Mads Mikkelsen) in what we assume is Florence, Italy. In the new season, both Hannibal Rising and Red Dragon will get a new literal re-telling, with showrunner Bryan Fuller, the series will mash up elements from the books in a unique way—including revealing a very different origin story for the good doctor.
It will be a while before dinner is served, but for now you can enjoy this appetising entrée until the new season debuts this summer.

If it's one thing we love, more than dear family members and this great United States of America, it's NBC's "Hannibal." The operatic horror series, based on the Thomas Harris novels that also inspired "Silence of the Lambs," "Manhunter," and, yes, "Hannibal" (sorry if this is getting confusing), is one of the most visually striking, emotionally riveting and just-plain-scary television series to ever hit the small screen. All of this makes the wait in between seasons downright torturous, especially since it was recently announced that the show wouldn't return until summer. And thanks to a new trailer for the third season that NBC has just unleashed, well, that wait is going to be even harder.
The show, of course, follows the adventures of Dr. Hannibal Lecter (Mads Mikkelsen), a murderous shrink who is involved in a deadly game of cat-and-mouse with an FBI profiler named Will Graham (Hugh Dancy). For »

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.

Much like the culinary prowess of its compelling villain, the build-up to Hannibal season 3 has required a delicate balance of ingredients. The threat of the show’s cancellation loomed over fans until NBC optioned the gritty thriller for a third season, and tidbits surrounding the latest additions to its cast dripped through slowly until EW finally debuted the upcoming season’s first teaser trailer earlier today. All in all, our appetites have been whetted. Now we’re ready to eat.
The third year of NBC’s dark, brooding show finds troubled FBI profiler Will Graham (Hugh Dancy) in hot pursuit of the charismatic Hannibal Lecter (Mads Mikkelsen). The dark, shadowy teaser only hints at the extent of Will’s determination in tracking down the cannibalistic serial killer. Remaining loyal to the tone of the show, the teaser avoids flashy extravagance, opting instead to burn out slow with scattered shots of »

“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" fans must be downright salivating by now. After the will-they-or-won't-they waiting period regarding the NBC series' cancellation, fannibals rejoiced at the renewal news in May 2014. Then it was announced at Comic Con in July that the third season would mind the novels of "Hannibal" and "Hannibal Rising," before starting the "Red Dragon" plot late in the season. Creator Bryan Fuller even teased the appearance of Clarice Starling, or at least mentioned their goal to include the second-most-famous character of Thomas Harris' novels. Add to the fervor a growing cast, including everyone's favorite "X-Files" actress Gillian Anderson, and anticipation for Season 3 had to boiling over. But then NBC turned down the heat last week during its TCA presentation, when it announced plans to push the premiere date back to this summer. Consider this an apology. Below you'll find the first trailer for "Hannibal" »

If you're into dark and creepy and you're not watching NBC's "Hannibal," you're missing out on some of the best and creepiest TV currently out there. The cat and mouse mental (and physical) chase between Will Graham (Hugh Dancy) and Hannibal Lecter (Mads Mikkelsen) is nothing short of spectacular. Almost as spectacular as the fact that the show, which is scheduled to return this summer, is still on network TV.
The third season will incorporate aspects of Thomas Harris' "Hannibal Rising" and "Red Dragon" and will follow Will as he hunts for Lecter in Europe. Details are vague (exactly how we like it) but the trailer is gorgeous and creepy, continuing the trend of the show's stunning good looks.
