Zachary Quinto who is best known for playing the least popular canon version of the character Spock is set to appear on the third season of Hannibal. Quinto is no stranger to the horror genre, having appeared on two seasons of American Horror Story. Quinto's character Dr. Thredson remains a fan favorite.
Given Quinto's history in horror and his impressive skill as an actor it is easy to imagine many ways in which he could be a great asset to 'Hannibal' in the future.Unfortunately it appears his time on the show may be very short. At this time we only know that he will appear for at least one episode as a patient of Dr. Maurier. I for one hope to see him play a major and recurring role. New characters have been known to meet rather sticky ends in the past.If that is to be the case hopefully Quinto's Vulcan flesh it to the liking of Dr. Lecter.
On another casting note it has been released that Michael Pitt will not be returning to the role of Mason Verger. Pitt is to be replaced by Joe Anderson who you might know from the film Across the Universe. The part has previously been taken on by Gary Oldman in the Silence of the Lambs sequel Hannibal. While Oldman and Pitt both performed admirably as Verger I think it will be good to have a new face or lack thereof in the role. Hannibal will return to our screens on Thursday June 4th.
