Which Traditionally Male Role in Hannibal Will Be Played by a Woman?
Lara Jean Chorostecki
Another name has been added to the cast of NBC's upcoming Silence of the Lambs drama, Hannibal — but there's a twist.
The show has tapped Camelot actress Lara Jean Chorostecki to play tabloid reporter Freddie Lounds, a traditionally male role, played in previous film versions by Philip Seymour Hoffman (Red Dragon) and Stephen Lang (Manhunter) — as "Freddy Lounds," TVLine reports.

Hannibal will premiere midseason on NBC.
