'Hannibal' Star Hugh Dancy Joins Hulu's 'The Way'

Hugh Dancy will follow NBC's "Hannibal" with a starring role on the Hulu relationship drama "The Way," joining Aaron Paul and Michelle Monaghan.

According to Entertainment Weekly, he'll play Cal Roberts, the charismatic leader of a cult who becomes entangled in a complicated relationship with two of its members, Sarah (Monaghan) and her conflicted husband Eddie (Paul).

Although it's already been reported that Dancy's "Hannibal" contract had expired in the wake of the thriller's cancellation, this would seem to be the definitive nail in the show's coffin.

Hulu has ordered 10 episodes of "The Way" (working title), which is scheduled to begin production next month in New York.
