The Matrix 4 continues to add to its cast. Collider reports that the movie has cast Mindhunter and Frozen II actor Jonathan Groff in an unspecified role for the sci-fi film.
Groff, who also starred in the early seasons of Glee as Jesse St. James, joins a cast for The Matrix 4 that includes Keanu Reeves and Carrie-Anne Moss reprising their roles as Neo and Trinity. Jada Pinkett Smith is also returning to play her character, Niobe, yet again.
In terms of actors new to the Matrix series, Groff will join Aquaman actor Yahya Abdul-Mateen II, Jessica Henwick, and Neil Patrick Harris. Lana Wachowski is returning to direct The Matrix 4 from a script Aleksander Hemon, David Mitchell, and Wachowski.
Groff stars in Netflix’s serial killer show Mindhunter as Holden Ford, while he also voices Kristoff in Disney’s Frozen series.
The new Matrix movie was announced in August, and although it does not yet have a confirmed release date, it is expected to start shooting in early 2020. For more, check out GameSpot’s guide to everything we know to date about Matrix 4.
