Mindhunter Teaser: Jonathan Groff Grills Serial Killers in New Netflix Drama

If you thought Rachel Berry was a tough nut to crack, just wait until you see who Jonathan Groff is going up against this time.

Groff (Looking, Glee) stars in Netflix’s upcoming crime drama Mindhunter, executive-produced by David Fincher and Charlize Theron, as an FBI agent who interviews incarcerated serial killers in an attempt to solve ongoing crimes.

Though Mindhunter‘s first season doesn’t drop until October, the streaming service on Wednesday gifted us with a first look at the 1979-set series, based on the John E. Douglas novel Mind Hunter: Inside FBI’s Elite Serial Crime Unit.

Additional stars include Holt McCallany (Blue Bloods), Anna Torv (Fringe), Hannah Gross and Cotter Smith (The Americans).

    Doesn’t look particularly interesting, but you had me at Groff and Anna Torv.

  2. Sam says:

    Any chance Groff’s character is gay? It would be cool to see a drama series with a gay protagonist.

    • Ian says:

      That was my first thought. He doesn’t need to be type cast, but being the gay lead of a show like this would be pretty progressive, and if he’s a likeable and interesting character, well that would be the perfect palette cleanser to Looking.

      • Sam says:

        I’m not saying he’s a bad actor and I think many LGBT actors can play outside of their sexuality. THAT BEING SAID, he reads as gay to me no matter what role he’s in. So if he gets it on with Anna Torv I might be rolling my eyes.

    Anna Torv! Yay!

  4. Jeff Black says:

    Mind hunter isn’t a novel, it’s memoir by an actual retired criminal profiler for the FBI who caught several different serial killers. Amazing true story that hopefully will get told properly.

  5. James D says:

    God I’ve missed Anna Torv since Fringe ended. I’m sold already – rest of the cast is pretty strong too.

  6. Deb Saine says:

    “mindhunter” the book isn’t a novel – it’s non-fiction!!

  7. James Moore says:

    Been there, done that. Whatever happened to originality?

  8. N says:

    Sounds good

  9. Jared says:

    The premise doesn’t interest me but Jonathan Groff does!

  10. Soraya E. says:

    So… this is Criminal Minds meets?…

  11. webly3 says:

    I have faith in this solely because of Anna Torv.

  12. MMD says:

    Not too sure about the show but I like Jonathan Groff. I’ll at least give it a try.

  13. Olivia says:

    Anna Torv, Jonathan Groff, serial killers, story based on true crime experience, all mixed into one AND not sanitized because on Netflix?

    I’M. IN.
