Bryan Fuller, via Twitter on Thursday, announced that Chelan Simmons will be joining the cast of Hannibal. The strange part about the casting is that she’ll be reprising the same role from a previous TV Show. Yes, Simmons will be portraying her character Gretchen Speck-Horowitz, from the TV show Wonderfalls. Her rival from Wonderfalls, played Caroline Dhavernas, has already been cast on Hannibal (as a different character and not one that talks to inanimate objects) will be playing Dr. Alana “Al” Bloom. Why all this happening, the returning of a character from a short lived series, remains to be seen.
Hannibal is based on the Thomas Harris novel “Red Dragon” and is slated for a mid season premiere.
