Laurence Fishburne May Join NBC’s ‘Hannibal’
Laurence Fishburne is considering another go at network television one year after ending a successful stint on CBS’ CSI. The actor is said to be in talks to join NBC’s Hannibal, a new series based off the characters in Thomas Harris’ infamous ”Red Dragon” novel.
Hannibal, from writer Bryan Fuller, is described as an hourlong contemporary thriller revolving around FBI agent Will Graham and his mentor, Dr. Hannibal Lecter, who are reintroduced as the beginning of their budding relationship.
Fishburne is in talks for ”the pivotal role of Jack Crawford, the agent-in-charge at the Behavioral Science Unit of the FBI who is tasked with tracking down a certain flesh-eating serial killer,” reports TVLine.
Fishburne has some exciting projects coming up, including a role as Perry White in next year’s Man of Steel.
