Uzo Aduba is our new Hannibal Lecter

Uzo Aduba has had plenty of creepy moments playing Suzanne “Crazy Eyes” Warren on Netflix's “Orange is the New Black,” but she's never been as throat-clutchingly scary as she is in this clip from Glamour magazine, where she recreates Anthony Hopkins' famed “fava beans and chianti” speech from “The Silence of the Lambs”:

Aduba nails the sinister, erudite line readings required for the role of the sociopathic cannibal, and her rendition of the climactic “f-f-f-f-f” moment is arguably more chilling than Hopkins'. Can a gender-and-color-blind remake be far behind? I'm already picturing her in that three-pronged wire cage mask.
