David Fincher’s new early days of profiling series “Mindhunter” hit just under two weeks ago and is already being embraced by critics and viewers judging by reviews and social media reaction.
Holt McCallany, who plays co-lead Bill Tench in the series, has worked with Fincher before and has spoken with Screen Rant this week about his turn in the series. He reveals that Fincher has a five-year plan in place:
“You know I’m in small, you know, supporting parts, peripheral parts. And so it was a big deal for me to be invited back by David in one of the leads. Because you know I believe in his talent, you know, and I know that you know, he wants to do five years of this show. Five seasons of these characters and so I’m hopeful, you know I don’t take anything for granted.”
McCallany previously worked with Fincher on both “Alien 3” and “Fight Club,” but notably found fame in other roles including “Below,” “Three Kings,” “Jade,” “Casualties of War,” “The Peacemaker,” “Men of Honor,” “Gangster Squad,” “Blackhat,” “Sully,” “Jack Reacher: Never Go Back” and shows like “Lights Out” and “CSI Miami”.
The first season of “Mindhunter” features serial killers Ed Kemper and Richard Speck being interviewed by the agents of the FBI’s then gestating Behavioural Science Unit, while Charles Manson and David Berkowitz get name dropped. The second season is expected to center on the Atlanta child murders that took place between 1979 and 1981.
