Every actor has a fit, a character mold, that they build their careers on and expand from, at least starting out. The bad guy, the girl next door, the cop, the angel. It is an approach to finding roles and networking that can create a successful and lucritive brand. There is a delicate balance between working a brand and being typecast. Actor Andy Gates joins us to discuss the evolution of his brand as the guy next door, the every man and the roles landed with this approach.

"I am enchanted ... and ...terrified." Tonight is the night, the confrontation between Hannibal Lecter and Mason Verger with Will Graham caught in the middle. And Hannibal does not disappoint in what is quite possibly the best show of the season featuring Michael Pitt giving what should be an award winning performance. The entire sequence between Hannibal and Mason while Mason is under the influence is incredibly entertaining and has co-hosts, Thomas, Dave, Doc and Christopher, smiling from ear to ear.

The penultimate episode of NBC's hit horror tv show Hannibal is brilliant. Director Christopher G. Moore is back to guide show hosts Thomas, Dave and Doc through each and every conversation in Tome-Wan between Hannibal and Will and Hannibal and Mason and Jack and Will. Thomas is thrilled with the Mason line "I have a taste and consistency that's similar to a a chicken gizzard. I'm full of myself!" while Doc likes the whole bit about "Eat my nose?" Or it may be Mason's confession that he planned to feed Will to the pigs or Hannibal's gaping glance at Mason sticking his father's knife into Hannibal's chair. The show is full of little nuggets - incredible television.

"This little piggy went EEEEEHHHHH all the way home?" Mason Verger terrorizes his sister Margot as he drops a meat puppet version of her into a pit of hungry pigs. Thomas, Dave and Doc are once again joined by director Christopher G. Moore to discuss NBC's hit television show Hannibal. But what is the meaning of long pig. Oh, Freddie.

Finally, we are introduced to the long anticipated character, Mason Verger portrayed by Michael (Boardwalk Empire) Pitt. Who knew he would end up a mix of a random James Bond villain and 80's pop star Thomas Dolby. Regardless he is ever bit as unnerving as expected. The show goes into bizarre territories with a blend of two simultaneous love scenes between Will & Margot and Hannibal & Alana with a little of the Hannibalized-Wendigo sprinkled in for good measure. It is a shocking episode that puts Will in a very precarious place, no longer seeing good and evil.

As always we want your feedback so drop us a line at thomas@horrornewstv.com or dave@horrornewstv.com or docrotten@horrornewstv.com and we’ll talk next week as we continue to bring you our recipe for fear with HORROR NEWS TV HANNIBAL FAN PODCAST.
