Hugh Dancy may star in NBC's dark thriller Hannibal, but the guy definitely knows how to keep it light, too.

Case in point? His playful exchange with Chelsea Handler during an appearance on Tuesday's Chelsea Lately.

As Dancy talked about his marriage to Claire Danes, Handler at one point joked, "I don't know why you keep arguing with me. I'm just trying to steer the conversation in different directions, and you want to keep correcting me."

"Where are we going with this?" Dancy inquired.

"I don't know. I just want to know what it's like to live with another actor," Handler noted. "I'm not lucky enough to meet someone who will live with me. So, I have questions. I want to know what it's like to have a relationship."

To which Dancy replied with a smile, "Do you, though, really?"

"No," admited Handler, as both started to laugh, adding, "I think I know what it's like. But you seem like a responsible adult who wants a family, so it's a totally different ball game."

"Yes, that's right," said Dancy, before pointing out, "There's a piece not missing."
