The Only Actor To Appear In Four Hannibal Lecter Movies (Not Anthony Hopkins)

Contrary to what some might be incorrectly inclined to assume, Frankie Faison isn’t related to fellow actor Donald Faison, who played Dr. Christopher Turk on Scrubs. Faison has plenty of his own claims to fame though, outside of just playing Barney in the Hannibal Lecter movies, including his role as Deputy Commissioner Ervin Burrell in HBO’s critically lauded crime drama The Wire. Faison also drew laughs as the Queens slumlord that Akeem and Semmi rent an apartment from in the classic Eddie Murphy comedy Coming to America.

Perhaps what’s most remarkable about the fact that Faison appears in four different Hannibal Lecter movies is that there’s no indication his appearance in Manhunter had any connection to his Silence of the Lambs casting. It’s seemingly by pure chance that he ended up being the only actor to take part in both Hopkins and non-Hopkins Hannibal Lecter movies. It’s also a fun coincidence that he would go on to appear in Hopkins’ Red Dragon after appearing in Manhunter, making him the only actor to be part of two different adaptations of Red Dragon.
