An agent is coming to the Matrix, but maybe not the kind you’re thinking.
According to Collider, Jonathan Groff, who is best known for playing FBI Agent Holden Ford in the acclaimed David Fincher Netflix series, “Mindhunter,” is now the latest actor to sign up for a role in the upcoming “Matrix 4.” But is he going from one Agent role to another? That’s yet to be revealed.
The report claims that Groff’s role is being kept under wraps, but considering his role on “Mindhunter,” he’d make a mighty fine Agent that could stand toe-to-toe with the sci-fi franchise’s previous actor Hugo Weaving. Maybe director Lana Wachowski has something a bit more inventive up her sleeve for this fourth installment? But hey, adding Groff is a solid choice, no matter what role he plays.
While we still don’t know much about plot or…anything really about “The Matrix 4,” we do know that Groff joins Keanu Reeves, Carrie-Ann Moss, Jada Pinkett-Smith, Neil Patrick Harris, Jessica Henwick, and Yahya Abdul-Mateen II in the cast. The latter of which is rumored to be a lead in the film, while speculation abounds that he might perhaps play a younger version of Morpheus, a character made famous by Laurence Fishburne.
As mentioned, many fans know Groff from his two seasons on “Mindhunter.” However, the actor has appeared in a number of films, including the two blockbuster “Frozen” films for Disney. He’s also appeared in the series “Looking,” which aired for a short time on HBO.
Wachowski is slated to direct the film. She also co-wrote the script alongside Aleksandar Hemon and David Mitchell. Production is expected to begin in early 2020.
