Tom Noonan (Dollarhyde) spent many hours in make-up so that artists could paint fake tattoos on his back and torso modeled after William Blake's Great Red Dragon paintings.

Michael Mann had initially considered fellow filmmaker William Friedkin for the part of Dr. Hannibal Lecktor, but when Brian Dennehy, also a prospective Hannibal, insisted that Mann see Scotsman Brian Cox in the acclaimed 1984 off-Broadway production of "Rat in the Skull", Mann was instantly won over by Cox's award-winning performance.
