James Cameron regular Lance Henriksen has been announced as the latest guest star to join Bryan Fuller’s Hannibal TV series.

The star of genre classics like Aliens, The Terminator and Near Dark will play a “top secret” role according to TV Line but at the moment there’s nothing to suggest he’ll appear in more than one episode.

Henriksen is the latest in a string of excellent actors to join the show, including Gillian Anderson, Anna Chlumsky and Eddie Izzard, and will hopefully share some screen-time with Mads Mikkelsen’s cannibalistic psychiatrist.

You can buy the Hannibal Lecter Trilogy on DVD for £9.00 on Amazon.co.uk
