Though the series itself has yet to secure a mid-season premiere date, we've been hearing quite a bit about the various Bryan Fuller alum chosen to take part in the director's upcoming NBC drama 'Hannibal,' an adaptation of author Thomas Harris' classic Hannibal Lecter mythos. And while most castings have focused on original characters, we've just learned that Fuller vet Raul Esparza has been cast as the classic seedy character Dr. Frederick Chilton! So how long will the good doctor be in for?

It really pays to know Bryan Fuller. Not only has the one-time 'Pushing Daisies' producer cast a number of his past stars in NBC's upcoming Hannibal Lecter adaptation 'Hannibal,' but he even provided a role for comedian Eddie Izzard! The UK star has previously been attached to Fuller's other NBC effort 'Mockingbird Lane' as Grampa Munster, though NBC passed on the series and burned off its pilot as a "Halloween Special." Find out Izzard's ripping new 'Hannibal' role inside!

Who's ready for liver with a bit of fava beans and a nice chianti? Yesterday, we managed to catch our first look at NBC's upcoming Hannibal Lecter adaptation 'Hannibal,' in the form of a number of photos from Entertainment Weekly. In it, we saw the good doctor himself (Mads Mikkelsen), as well as the likes of Hugh Dancy's Will Graham and a bit of behind-the-scenes work, but what do the latest photos tease about an iconic movie moment?

For as much as we might have liked to see Bryan Fuller's 'Mockingbird Lane' be given a chance at a full series, likely the most intriguing of the director's upcoming efforts is that of 'Hannibal,' a modern prequelized take on the relationship between the iconic Dr. Hannibal Lecter (Mads Mikkelsen), and up and coming FBI agent Will Graham (Hugh Dancy).  The first photos of Mikkelsen's Hannibal have been revealed, but how do they taste to fans of the classic films?

Well, that certainly won't be a stretch. As NBC's Bryan Fuller-adapted 'Hannibal' continues casting toward its mid-season 2013 premiere, the core roster of characters around the good Dr. Lecter seems more and more intriguing. We've known for sometime that former 'The Matrix' and 'CSI' star Laurence Fishburne would take the role of FBI director Jack Crawford, but now we've learned he'll get to star opposite his own wife! Who will former 'Firefly' and current 'Suits' star Gina Torres play in the 'Hannibal' universe?

Huh. Alright then. Earlier today we learned a bit more about why NBC seems to have decided not to move forward on the Bryan Fuller-helmed 'Munsters' reboot 'Mockingbird Lane,' reportedly owing to disagreements over just how quirky and "Fuller" the world outside the actual 'Munsters' should be. Given 'Hannibal's' latest round of castings, including typically comedic performer and 'SNL' vet Molly Shannon, might Hannibal Lecter's world be in for the same treatment?

Considering how many eyes are going to be on NBC's upcoming adaptation of 'Hannibal,' an updated prequel take on the classic Thomas Harris Hannibal Lecter novels, it's surprising to think that we haven't seen very much in the way of footage, or even photos from production. We've seen a set photo or two, and even gotten plenty out of casting, but what bout the man himself? Does the first poster for 'Hannibal' reveal the good doctor, or keep us in the dark?

'Pushing Daisies' creator Bryan Fuller might have needed a bit of comfort this week, after rumors flew that NBC was dropping his oft-questioned, but wholly intriguing 'Munsters' reboot 'Mockingbird Lane.'  And how better to comfort the man then by diving into new work and hanging out with friends?  That's why the latest addition to Fuller's forthcoming NBC adapation of 'Hannibal' might look familiar to fans of 'Pushing Daisies,' but who exactly will Ellen Greene be playing?

Well, this is an odd play for NBC. Whenever a famed showrunner takes upon a new project, it's fairly commonplace for said producer to recruit actors from his former series, be they lead or supporting. NBC might be entering whole new territory, however, as 'Hannibal' showrunner Bryan Fuller seems not only to have recruited former 'Wonderfalls' star Chelan Simmons for his new series, but her character as well! What the what?
