Hannibal Just Recast This Major Character image

If a TV show ever has to replace an actor during the middle of a character’s narrative arc, it certainly helps if the character’s face has been sliced up to the point of unrecognizability. Hannibal fans are in for one hell of a switcheroo for the super sickoMason Verger, as actor Michael Pitt has left the series entirely and won’t be coming back for Season 3. Luckily, NBC was quick to find a replacement in Hercules actor Joe Anderson.

I don't watch this show, but saw this news and thought the actors didn't look like each other?   I remember Michael Pitts from something... maybe an SVU episode and I think he's very distinctive, so recasting has to be hard.

I have to admit whenever I saw this guy on Hannibal I kept thinking of him as Jimmy on Boardwalk Empire.  I am sure there are other people that are worked up about the switch(not that it's the shows choice...it's the actors choice) but for me...I am okay with this one.

I thought the same thing, they don't look or sound anything alike. But the character has scars all over his face so I don't think it will matter much. But I don't think Michael Pitts is the best actor in the world so i'm a bit worried.
