Has Hollywood overdosed on too many fava beans with their nice chianti? Two characters from the same series of Thomas Harris books wound up in development simultaneously, and how that happened is an all-too typical story of tangled Hollywood rights.
Former Bond villain Mads Mikkelsen has been cast as the title character in NBC's upcoming series, Hannibal, Deadline reports.
Mikkelsen, 46, will star opposite Hugh Dancy in the project, which is described as a contemporary thriller featuring characters from Thomas Harris' bestselling Red Dragon novel. In the show...
Hugh Dancy has landed one of two leads in NBC's upcoming Hannibal series.

Our top moments of the week:
12. Worst Kiss: Bachelor Pad wouldn't be complete (and by "complete" we mean "characteristically disgusting and bad for humanity") without a kissing contest. Holly and Blake release some sexual tension when they make out (for a while actually) during the blindfolded competition. But as if making out in front of your housemates isn't bad enough, Holly's ex-fiancé Michael has to watch the whole thing. Awk-ward!
11. Worst Scare: Talk about heated competition!
With a mischievous smile, Laura Linney is gleefully ruining a take. During a tense scene between her character, Cathy Jamison, who has Stage 4 melanoma, and her bipolar brother, Sean, played by John Benjamin Hickey, she makes her costar break down in giggles.
Whoever says cancer is no laughing matter hasn't seen The Big C, Showtime's irreverent comedy about a Minneapolis teacher, wife and mom who's trying not only to beat death but to live as fully as possible in whatever time she has left. The smartly written, beautifully cast show has earned a devoted fan base and critical plaudits, and three-time Emmy winner Linney has already snared a Golden Globe for her deft portrayal of the strong-willed Cathy....

Laura Linney, The Big C
When Cathy (Laura Linney) found out she had melanoma on The Big C last season, she kicked her husband out of the house, bought a convertible and wasn't afraid to tell anyone how she really felt.
What she didn't do was tell her family and friends about her life-altering diagnosis (save for her disgruntled neighbor, Marlene, who later committed suicide).
Months later, Cathy's cancer is out in the open — for the most part — and now that she has been forced to face her disease, she's also ready to...
