Hannibal Exclusive: Gina Torres Is Jack's Wife!

Gina Torres HannibalAnother week, another killer piece of Hannibal casting.

Gina Torres is joining NBC’s contemporary Hannibal Lecter series as the wife of Laurence Fishburne’s G-Man Jack Crawford, TVLine has learned exclusively.

Like Hannibal‘s Caroline Dhavernas, Molly Shannon, Chelan Simons and Ellen Greene, Torres — who will juggle the recurring gig with her full-time job on USA Network’s Suits — previously worked with Hannibal exec producer Bryan Fuller: She played beautiful grifter Lila Robinson in Fuller’s Pushing Daisies. The actress also has a connection to onscreen spouse Fishburne — she’s married to him!

Hannibal, which is based on characters from Thomas Harris’ Red Dragon, centers on the budding relationship between FBI agent Will Graham (played by Hugh Dancy) and his mentor Dr. Hannibal Lecter (Mads Mikkelsen) – who are re-introduced at the beginning of their budding relationship. It’s slated to bow at midseason.

    In the late 1990′s she did a tiny little action packed series called ‘Cleopatria’ shown on channel on 11 in N.Y.C. The series was shown after ‘Xena’. Ever since then I’ve been a fan. I think that was her first series.

  15. LAURENCE IS A GREAT ACTOR …I LOVE HIM AS AN ACTOR…I JUST DISLIKE HIM AS A FAMILY MEMBER WHO FORGOT WHERE HE CAME FROM…HE IS NOT A FAN…HE IS FAM …AND I WISH HIM THE BEST.WE ALL ARE ON ASSIGNMENT AND HE IS BLESSED WITH THE ACTING BUSINESS..WE CAN’T ACT IN FRONT OF GOD..TO GOD BE THE GLORY AT THE END OF ALL OUR STORIES IN LIFE..
