The upcoming NBC series "Hannibal" has found a new cast member in "The X-Files" star Gillian Anderson. EW has the news, reporting that Anderson will play a psychiatrist to Hannibal Lecter (Mads Mikkelsen).

From showrunner Bryan Fuller ("Pushing Daisies," "Dead Like Me"), "Hannibal" also stars Hugh Dancy and Laurence Fishburne and is officially described as follows:

One of the most fascinating literary characters comes to life on television for the first time: psychiatrist-turned-serial killer, Dr. Hannibal Lecter. In this new drama from Bryan Fuller, based on the characters from Thomas Harris' classic novels, we see where this incredible story began.

Will Graham is a gifted criminal profiler who is on the hunt for a serial killer with the FBI. Graham's unique way of thinking gives him the astonishing ability to empathize with anyone - even psychopaths. He seems to know what makes them tick. But when the mind of the twisted killer he's pursuing is too complicated for even Will to comprehend, he enlists the help of Dr. Lecter, one of the premier psychiatric minds in the country. Armed with the uncanny expertise of the brilliant doctor, Will and Hannibal (known as a serial killer only to the audience) form a brilliant partnership and it seems there's no villain they can't catch. If Will only knew...


"Hannibal" is expected to debut sometime in 2013.
