If the NBC series Hannibal gets picked up for a second season, series creator Bryan Fuller revealed he wants to bring David Bowie on board. Here's what the executive producer had to say about what role he wanted the iconic singer/actor to play.
"I guess my dream casting for the show would be to cast David Bowie as Hannibal Lecter's uncle. If we get a Season 2, I will reach out and see if there is any interest."
While nothing has been made official yet, Bryan Fuller said that NBC is happy with Hannibal's ratings.
"NBC is saying that they're very happy with where we are at so I hope that indicates towards a second season because I have a plan for season two that I think would be very exciting."
When asked how long he sees the series running for, Bryan Fuller said he has arcs mapped out for upwards of seven seasons, which may even tie into the movies Red Dragon, Silence of the Lambs, and Hannibal.
"I have arcs through, about season 7. I think seven seasons sounds about right. Season 1 is about the bromance, the second season would be the nasty breakup, and our third season would have a fugitive angle to it. The fourth season would be Red Dragon, the fifth season would be in the realm of Silence of the Lambs, the sixth season would be in the realm of the novel Hannibal, and I think the seventh season, it would be interesting to see Will Graham and Clarice Starling, or a Clarice Starling-like character, to come together and share an adventure with their nemesis Hannibal Lecter."
Hannibal airs Thursday nights at 10 PM ET on NBC.
