‘Hannibal’ season 3: Tao Okamoto featured in ‘major arc’ with a ‘dark secret’

The popular prequel TV series centering on Hannibal Lecter has added another star to be the center of an arc in the third season of the NBC drama.

Deadline reported Friday that Wolverine co-star Tao Okamoto “is set for a major guest-starring arc on NBC drama series Hannibal. Okamoto will play the dark and mysterious Lady Murasaki, who possesses an alluring and classical beauty with a dark secret.”

Okamoto has a supporting role in the upcoming Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and according to ComicBook.com, their “sources” tell them that “Our source indicated that Japanese actress Tao Okamoto is playing Lex Luthor’s assistant, who is named ‘Mercy.’ In the comic books and Superman animated series, Mercy Graves is Lex’s personal assistant and body guard, where she is portrayed as highly intelligent and experienced in hand-to-hand combat.”

“Brent Sexton (The Killing) and Joseph Julian Soria (Fast & Furious) have booked recurring roles on USA Network’s Complications. From Burn Notice creator Matt Nix and Fox TV Studios, the drama series centers on John Ellison (Jason O’Mara), a disillusioned suburban ER doctor who finds his existence transformed when he intervenes in a drive-by shooting, saving a young boy’s life and killing one of his attackers,” the article also reported.

Mads Mikkelsen’s Dr. Lecter was seen leaving with Dr. Bedelia (played by Gillian Anderson). That is after he left Will Graham, Special Agent Jack Crawford (Laurence Fishburne), and Alana Bloom (Caroline Dhavernas) soaking in their own blood.

While nothing has been reported, it’s safe to assume the show will return in the Spring of 2015.
