Suits star Gina Torres has been added to the cast of NBC's upcoming Hannibal Lecter series Hannibal, TVLine reports.

She'll play the wife of Laurence Fishburne's FBI agent Jack Crawford. The role won't be too much of a stretch for her — the two are also married in real life.

Fishburne isn't the only connection Torres has to the cast. She and Hannibal co-star Ellen Greene also appeared together in Pushing Daisies, which, like Hannibal was created by Bryan Fuller.

The thriller stars Hugh Dancy as FBI agent Will Graham and Mads Mikkelsen as the cannibalistic Dr. Lecter. It is scheduled to premiere on NBC at midseason.
