Hannibal Exclusive: Gina Torres Is Jack's Wife

TV Line:
Another week, another killer piece of Hannibal casting.

Gina Torres is joining NBC’s contemporary Hannibal Lecter series as the wife of Laurence Fishburne’s G-Man Jack Crawford, TVLine has learned exclusively.

Like Hannibal‘s Caroline Dhavernas, Molly Shannon, Chelan Simons and Ellen Greene, Torres — who will juggle the recurring gig with her full-time job on USA Network’s Suits — previously worked with Hannibal exec producer Bryan Fuller: She played beautiful grifter Lila Robinson in Fuller’s Pushing Daisies. The actress also has a connection to onscreen spouse Fishburne — she’s married to him!

The story is too old to be commented.

This is great news. I know she's on Suits but that's just like a 10 episode summer show on USA so she can probably do both. I just love her.

This show is looking better and better. Mads Mikkelsen playing Hannibal Lecter is really all I needed though.

Yes, I think it's going to be an awesome show. Let's hope it makes on the ratings when it comes out.
