Where yesterday brought some exciting 'Hannibal' season 2 news in the form of a new trailer and casting snippets, today comes the season's biggest casting news to date. 'Boardwalk Empire' alum Michael Pitt has officially joined the second season of NBC's darkly dreary cannibal drama in a major recurring role, none other than iconic literary villain Mason Verger!
After the devastating hour that was 'Boardwalk Empire's second season finale "To the Lost," we knew that the series would never again be the same. Not only did one of the series most crucial characters fall by the wayside, their death changed Nucky Thompson (Steve Buscemi) in a way that will reverberate throughout the upcoming third season. With that said though, will death really be the end? Might said character return from the grave in 'Boardwalk Empire' season 3?
