Bryan Fuller, the creator of the Hannibal TV series, says he has invited David Bowie to appear in the next season.
In an interview with E News Fuller said “We have reached out to David Bowie to see if he’s interested and available. We would love for him to play Hannibal’s uncle, who is a character from the literature and in the books.”
Bowie is yet to respond to the offer.
In the original book Red Dragon Lecter’s uncle Count Robert Lecter was killed by Nazis during World War II.
Production for Season Two of Hannibal will begin in Toronto, Canada in August, 2013.
