If you have seen True Detective, then you will understand how exciting it is that Glenn Fleshler (above) has been cast in a villainous role. If you haven’t seen True Detective yet, then you have some serious catching up to do, and my suggestion is you cancel EVERYTHING you plan to watch, and just watch True Detective, it is THAT good.
The Wrap reports that Fleshler will be playing the role of Cordell, the attentive and creepy doctor in Season 3. A character from Thomas Harris’ “Hannibal” novels, Cordell cares for the disfigured Mason Verger.
NBC describe the character as:
The personal doctor to a disfigured Mason Verger, quiet, very intelligent, and definitely creepy. He is attentive and gentle with Mason, a professional who cares about his work but we get a sense he might be as sadistic as Mason Verger and a perfect fit to become his potential henchman.
“Hannibal” has been beefing up its cast, with “Hobbit” star Richard Armitage set to portray serial killer Francis Dolarhyde, a.k.a “The Tooth Fairy.” Rutina Wesley, of “True Blood,” signed on for the role of Reba McClane, a blind woman who is Dolarhyde’s last chance at humanity.
The show also replaced “Boardwalk Empire” actor Michael Pitt with Joe Anderson for Verger’s role.
