Hannibal Nabs Zachary Quinto for Season 3 Role

It places the Quinto in the thriller — it does this whenever it’s told.

The Slap and American Horror Story star Zachary Quinto will guest star on Season 3 of NBC’s grisly good Hannibal, TVLine has confirmed. 

The actor will play a patient of Gillian Anderson’s Dr. Bedelia Du Maurier for at least one episode — which has us wondering if the show might flash back to that time the enigmatic therapist took a life while under the influence of our titular sociopath.

Quinto’s casting was first reported by EW.com.

Whereas Hannibal‘s first two seasons kicked off in April and February, respectively, fans will have to wait for summer 2015 to take a bite out of Season 3 — which will feature a significant time jump following Episode 8.

Tony winner Nina Arianda, The Hobbit‘s Richard Armitage, True Blood‘s Rutina Wesley and The Divide‘s Joe Anderson will all be new additions to the show’s cast this year.
