Jonathan Groff in Mindhunters

Jonathan Groff Joins David Fincher's New Netflix Series Mindhunter

Jonathan Groff has secured a killer new TV gig.

The Looking actor — who’s currently stealing scenes in Hamilton on Broadway — has signed on to star in Mindhunter, David Fincher’s forthcoming Netflix series based on the 1996 nonfiction book Mind Hunter: Inside the FBI’s Elite Serial Crime Unit.

The book, written by John Douglas and Mark Olshaker, chronicled Douglas’ pursuit of some of the most notorious serial killers and rapists. Fincher will direct the premiere and serve as an EP with Charlize Theron.

Details on Groff’s series-regular role are being kept under wraps. Netflix declined to comment.

Groff recently completed work on Looking‘s two-hour wrap-up movie, which will air later this year on HBO.

    I probably won’t buy him as an FBI Agent but damn so glad to see Jonathan on TV again….

      Can I ask why?

    • Hurley says:

      Because he’s gay?!?

      • Leo says:

        Hell no. It’s not about sexual orientation. It’s a subjective opinion because I only saw him on TV playing dramatic scenes and I think he’s perfect in those. This is just like when they cast Debra Messing in Mysteries of Laura, and I was proven so wrong. So, I’m crossing fingers for J-Groff.

    Amazing news! Can’t wait to see him on TV again, both in this show and in the Looking movie, which I hope airs soon.
