A talking lion figurine told us something great Wednesday night: Wonderfalls sweetheart Caroline Dhavernas
will be part of the Hannibal cast.
Just kidding about the lion – it was actually showrunner Bryan Fuller, the man behind both the single-season cult hit and NBC’s upcoming horror series, who tweeted the news. “CAST #Wonderfalls #Hannibal” said his cryptic message, accompanied by a photo of Dhavernas in her Wonderfalls days.
We hear that the actress will play a series regular named Dr. Alana “Al” Bloom, a psychiatric protege of Hannibal Lecter’s who teaches psychology at Georgetown University and is consulting with the FBI on criminal profiling when she introduces her mentor to Laurence Fishburne’s Jack Crawford.
