Cast Hannibal Lecter for NBC's "Hannibal" pilot

So NBC has ordered "Hannibal" to series, but they haven't cast Hannibal Lecter.

Who you got?

Keep in mind that NBC's "Hannibal" is essentially a prequel to "Red Dragon."

So figure it's not an old Hannibal, but it's also not a young Hannibal.

I think Jonathan Rhys-Meyers and Matthew Good are probably too young and that Alan Rickman and David Thewlis and Tim Roth are probably too old.

So who are your choices?

So this would be the period where he's working as a pervo psychiatrist?

How about Joseph Fiennes? He's been doing nothing but tv the past few years, lost his most recent gig when 'Camelot' missed renewal, and has not a lot of subtlety but could likely sink his teeth (sorry) into the more melodramatic aspects of playing a brilliant dude-eating sociopath. The only strike against him is that his 41 looks like most people's 29, so they'd have to process all his footage with a nice high-contrast HDR technique or something to make the wrinkles pop.

Ah! Joe Fiennes, he was great as "Martin Luther" in "Luther" - And his proletarian commissioner of "Enemy at the Gates" was the perfect tragic figure. He's got a great face - I'd watch it if they cast him...

How about Jared Francis Harris AKA David Robert Jones from Fringe? I guess he might be too old, but he is creepy enough.

I think that Daniel Day-Lewis would make a great Hannabil

I'm gonna' steal an idea I saw on another board and cast my vote for Mark Sheppard.
He looks about the right age, has the right accent, and does 'i know just a bit more than I'm letting on" really well.
Great on BSG, Leverage, and lots of other roles. He deserves a shot at a big network show.

Why in the world hasn't anyone thought aout James Franco? He is a bit young but no younger than these other guys mentioned. He has boo-coo talent, will do TV and is a wonderful genious as Franco the serial killer on General Hospital; I can so see him as Hanabil, what a star, what an evil genious! Book him imediately!
