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.

    I can’t believe I have to wait until the Summer to see one of the best shows on TV!

  2. Awesome news! I don`t think he will have a long and prosper life anymore, when he meets my favourite cannibal. :D

    Very excited about this!! Both the casting news and that it looks like we’re really going to learn more about Bedelia and Hannibal’s past! I don’t want to wait any longer!

    summer is a bad idea for ratings. People will be on vacation. It will stink to miss some of the episodes.

      You will be able to watch the episodes you miss online. Unfortunately, “Hannibal”‘s ratings are bad anyway…we’re lucky that NBC is letting the series continue at all.
