Laurence Fishburne is returning to the small screen to join the cast of NBC's upcoming contemporary take on Hannibal, with characters from Thomas Harris’ Red Dragon novel.

TVLine has learned exclusively that Fishburne is circling the pivotal role of Jack Crawford, the agent-in-charge at the Behavioral Science Unit of the FBI, who is tasked with tracking down a certain flesh-eating serial killer.

The project, written and exec-produced by Pushing Daisies creator Bryan Fuller and slated to debut midseason, centers on the relationship between FBI agent Will Graham (played by Hugh Dancy) and his mentor Dr. Hannibal Lecter (Mads Mikkelsen).

    He is such a talent. I love watching him work. His wife is very talented also. That reminds me, I need to catch up on "Suits".
