Fans of Hannibal Lecter lore, get excited: NBC’s “Hannibal” has found its Mason Verger.
For those unfamiliar with the Verger character, he’s an unstable, young, wealthy patient of Dr. Lecter’s (Mads Mikkelsen) who enters into a dangerous cat-and-mouse game with the serial killer. The character was featured in the 2001 “Hannibal” film, based on Thomas Harris’ novel of the same name, with an unidentifiable Gary Oldman famously playing an older version of the character.
Season 2 of “Hannibal” premieres Friday, Feb. 28 at 10 p.m. ET/PT on NBC.
