Jonathan Groff shows off his gloomy side in the teaser trailer for the upcoming Netflix series Mindhunter, which premieres in October. The crime drama features the Hamilton and Spring Awakening Tony Award nominee as an FBI agent in the late 1970s who interrogates imprisoned serial killers to track down violent criminals on the loose. Take a look at the teaser above.
The sneak peek, amidst a series of Rorschach-style blood splatters, shows Groff justifying his connection to the dangerous convicts his job requires him to empathize with. “You want truffles?” he says, “you got to get in the dirt with the pigs.”
Starring alongside Groff are Holt McCallany, Anna Torv, and Cotter Smith. The series is executive-produced by David Fincher and Oscar winner Charlize Theron.
