While you wait for Friday’s new episode of Hannibal, here’s a pretty awesome picture for the viewers.

If you’re a fan of Thomas Harris’ novels or have seen Ridley Scott’s film Hannibal, then you should be familiar with the character Mason Verger, originally played by Gary Oldman. Well, director David Slade has posted a picture of actor Michael Pitt (Funny Games, The Dreamers) as the character… before he cuts his own face off. Check out the image below.

Episode 2.09 “Shiizakana”: “The FBI is called in to investigate the discovery of a truck driver’s body, seemingly torn apart by two separate species of animal working in tandem, neither of which consumed their kill. After one of his therapy sessions, Will (Hugh Dancy) meets Hannibal’s (Mads Mikkelsen) strange new patient, Margot Verger (Katherine Isabelle). Will and Margot compare notes on Hannibal and his unconventional advice. Continually encouraging his patients to revel in what they are, Hannibal aims to determine Will’s true self by sending him a test, the results of which surprise even Hannibal.

The episode also stars Aaron Abrams, Scott Thompson and Jeremy Davies.
