Scully Versus The Cannibal

It's been a decade since The X-Files ended if you can believe that (on television I mean - there was that second movie in 2008 of course) and Gillian Anderson's been keeping herself occupied ever since then mostly by acting British on British things. She even got to hang out with Danny Dyer's boner! (What a lucky goil.) 

But our too too long American Scully-drought is coming to an end - no, it's not that third X-Files movie they keep saying they're going to make, at least not yet, but something maybe even cooler - she's going to play Hannibal Lecter's therapist on Bryan Fuller's tv show Hannibal! Holy shit! Says Bryan:

"Every therapist needs their own head examined and we are ecstatic that Gillian Anderson has chosen Hannibal to mark her return to American television after 10 years to portray Dr. Lecter’s personal psychiatrist. Her intelligence and sophistication, not to mention her pedigree of ground-breaking TV, make her the perfect actress to match wits and psychological manipulations with one of the greatest villains of pop culture. I couldn’t be more excited."

She was quite good speaking ... French, if I remember correctly, in the movie Sister this year.

Even more frightening:

the first episode of the show ran in 1993 -- so this coming September marks twenty years since the premiere.

Goodness knows I love Anderson, but that Fine Young Hannibals show, or whatever the frack it's supposed to be, looks extravagantly terrible.
