Veteran actor Laurence Fishburne is returning to television in a key recurring role on NBC’s upcoming serial killer thriller Hannibal.
Fishburne will play 'FBI Behavioral Sciences Unit leader Jack Crawford and will be the stern boss to FBI agent Will Graham’s (Hugh Dancy). Crawford introduces Graham to a psychiatrist with a rather dark secret (Mads Mikkelsen) who helps them solve crimes.' The Jack Crawford role has been played by Dennis Farina (Manhunter), Scott Glenn (The Silence of the Lambs) and Harvey Keitel (Red Dragon) in the film versions of Thomas Harris’ Hannibal Lecter novels.
The 13-episode first season of Hannibal is expected to premiere in midseason on NBC.
