Holt McCallany has been cast as the lead in David Fincher’s new Netflix crime drama series “Mindhunter”.
McCallany previously worked with Fincher on “Alien 3” and “Fight Club” and scored rave reviews for his leading man performance in FX’s short lived boxing drama “Lights Out”.
Set in 1979, the TV series centers on the inquisitive and skilled FBI Agent Bill Tench (McCallany) who, along with fellow serial killer investigator in the behavioral science unit, FBI agent Holden Ford (Jonathan Groff), interview serial killers to help them solve current murders.
Anna Torv is also onboard the series as a psychologist. Joe Penhall and Scott Buck are penning while Fincher and Charlize Theron are executive producing.
