Typically when you're looking for the Thin White Duke, he's driving from station to station... but you might just be able to find him on NBC next year.
'Hannibal' executive producer Bryan Fuller has revealed that he's offered musician David Bowie a role on the second season of NBC's serial killer drama.
"We have reached out to David Bowie to see if he's interested and available," Fuller told E! Online. "We would love for him to play Hannibal's uncle, who is a character from the literature and in the books."
"We don't have an answer [from Bowie] yet," Fuller added.
The character of Hannibal's uncle, Count Robert Lecter, isn't alive in the Thomas Harris novels upon which the series is based (he was killed by the Nazis) -- but don't expect that to stop him from popping up. "Since our timeline is a little more present, there's a little bit of J.J. Abrams-style alternate universe storytelling where he could still be alive," Fuller said.
It wouldn't be Bowie's first acting gig. He starred in the 1977 film 'The Man Who Fell to Earth,' and more recently appeared in 2006's Christopher Nolan flick 'The Prestige,' where he played scientist Nikola Tesla.
2013 has been a comeback year for the musician: he released 'The Next Day,' his first studio album in over ten years, back in March.
Personally, though I would love to see Bowie come to television, I'd rather him stick with recording studio albums -- he's reportedly already at work on his next one.
What do you think? Would you like to see Bowie on 'Hannibal'?
