Jonathan Groff has landed a new gig on Netflix original series “Mindhunter.”
The show, from “House of Cards” executive producer and director David Fincher and Charlize Theron, is based on the book “Mindhunter: Inside the FBI’s Elite Serial Crime Unit” by former special agent John Douglas and Mark Olshaker. The book chronicles Douglas’s investigation into high-profile serial killers and rapists such as the Atlanta child murderer and Seattle’s Green River killer.
According to Deadline, Groff will play FBI agent Holden Ford alongside Holt McCallany, who is set to star as FBI Agent Bill Tench. Anna Torv will also star as a psychologist. The show’s premise will have Tench interviewing serial killer to help solve current murders.
Groff will appear in the “Looking” television movie later this year and can be seen in the cast of “Hamilton” on Broadway.
