Makes sense, Sculley is pretty much Clarice with a medical degree. So this is going to be like Dexter only on NBC? Yeah. Gillian, I love you but you should have pushed for another X-Files movie instead.

mark her return to American television after 10 years

Glad they made that point in the article,

Loved her in Bleak House.

Excellent news! Without further ado, let's celebrate!

If any of the characters were going to get a spinoff, I figured it would be B.A. Baracus.

Wow, she's a LILF.

Hellooooo, Clarice Dana nurse!

After that last one? No, just let the series rest in peace. No need to desecrate its corpse.

Shazam999: Wow, she's a LILF.


Is that first L supposed to stand for lesbian? Cause I don't think she's a full-on lez, just an ac/dc.

/ ya know, goes both ways

Because a Hannibal series without Hopkins is called for?

So, when the show gets canceled after five episodes, is she going to be absent for another ten years?
 
2012-12-13 12:03:08 PM  
She's in 2 movies playing on the film festival circuit this year: "Sister" from Sweden and "Shadow Dancer" from Ireland.

Huh? I wasn't even talking about Hannibal, just saying another X-Files movie would probably be a bad idea.

/ but for the record, no, I think it's a terrible idea. Hopkins owned that role so thoroughly it's pretty much ruined for anyone else for at least another generation

I would like to have sex with her.

And by 'sex' I mean 'put my semi erect penis in her vagina'

I hope I'm not being too cryptic.
 
2012-12-13 12:15:11 PM  
So they're going for 13 episode seasons. Don't know how long viewers will stick around for a murder-of-the-week show. They'll have to use their big hooks sooner rather than later: Lector escapes, maybe he kills Graham or Crawford, Clarice debuts, hunt for Lecter, etc.
 
2012-12-13 12:28:03 PM  
WHat I want to say is that she is a brilliant woman whose compassion and kindest I have heard about for years. She is successful is almost every positive quality a person could list.

But the guy in me can only think, "Oh man, she is so gorgeous."

So who is going to play Scipio?
 
2012-12-13 12:46:15 PM  
I would really like her to make a guest appearance on Californication so Duchovny can bone her on screen (can't remember if that ever happened in the movie.) Plus, boobies.
 
2012-12-13 12:48:25 PM  
I'd eat her.

With or without some fava beans and a nice chianti.

Well, I snerked. I'd prefer that concept, actually.

Go back and watch the very first epi of X-files. She was even hotter when she was still pretty young. Those lips!

Still want to see more about Will Graham. He is the most interesting character to me (see Manhunter). I am disappointed there hasn't been more about him.

IIRC there was a scene in one of the X-files movies where she's getting out of his bed, but no, we never see them doing the dirty deed on screen.

Then you'll get your wish. This show is about the days before Manhunter/Red Dragon, at the time when Graham was first after Hannibal. Should be an interesting dynamic. If I remember the book correctly, Graham was using Hannibal as a consultant on the case, with no idea that he was the killer.

she reminds me of Nana Visitor

Yeah, he was. In fact he caught Lecter by seeing a print in his office (Wound Man) that tipped him off. He was so into the mind of Lecter he couldn't shake it. (It's one of the reasons I liked the Manhunter adaption better then the Red Dragon: the dynamic between Lecter and Graham was better, even in that one scene).

Sure, the last one was terrible but I dug the first one. And the alien invasion was supposed to happen in 2012. I could have gone with one more film.

She played the role of Lady Dedlock in a 2005 BBC TV production of Bleak House. She does a very credible English accent.

Lady Dedlock tells Esther that she is her mother

Didn't that scene happen in Red Dragon? Not Manhunter? In Manhunter, Hannibal killed and buried women.

Oh, I thought that meant she liked playing guitar in school uniform.

I was speaking of the source material for both the novel "Red Dragon". Sorry, should have made that clear.

Ok...second try at clarifying...I don't mean the scene in the office was in Manhunter I meant the one scene in Manhunter between Lector was better than the various scenes in the Red Dragon Movie. Wow...sometimes I know what I am trying to say, but still can't manage to.
