HANNIBAL Gives Us First Look at Michael Pitt’s Mason Verger — Finally!

We’ve previously only heard allusions and references to Mason Verger on NBC’s Hannibal, the only man to have — uh, spoiler, I guess? — survived an attack by Hannibal Lecter in the Thomas Harris cannibal-killer saga of movies and novels. But it looks like he’s about to make his big debut, as evidenced by these new photos.

We’d previously only been privy to a single black and white photo of Michael Pitt’s Verger, thanks to director David Slade. But now we have Verger in full, unadulterated context. And — oh snap! — he’s going to be playing right alongside Mads Mikkelsen’s Hannibal Lecter from the outset. Standing so brazenly next to his previously attempted victim, sister Margot Verger (Katharine Isabelle), proves that we’re in store for more of Bryan Fuller’s textbook tension-building and seriously audacious serial murderpeople. Something tells us Dr. Lecter is going to find it all very, very rude. We’re, for one, very much looking forward to Friday at 10 PM, when the episode in question “Naka-choko,” debuts on NBC.

Now, morbid question alert, but tell us: by whose hand would you rather theoretically die — Hannibal’s or Mason’s? Let us know in the comments.

  2. Cherry Darling says:

    Anything with Katherine Isabelle is worth my time♡

  3. vismund says:

    stereotypes exist for a reason

  4. Overheten says:

    My god, stop it with the obnoxious politically correct whining about stereotypes.

    News flash- there are actual, real gay men that are feminine and have risky sex with multiple partners.

    I tended bar for 18 years and we had a ton of gay guests in. About half of them were stereotypical.

    Get a life, you control freak.

    @vjj I may have misunderstood your comment, so please, just to clarify; What character?

  6. Cpt Spaulding665 says:

    isn’t labeling the guy “an out gay man” a negative gay stereotype?

  7. Lori T. says:

    If you’re going to be murdered anyway, being part of one of Hannibal’s themes would be the way to go!

  8. vjj says:

    I’m shocked Bryan Fuller (an out gay man) would adapt this character to embody so many negative gay stereotypes.
