According to a new report from Collider, prolific actor Jonathan Groff has joined the cast of The Matrix 4. Perhaps best known as Anna’s doofus boyfriend from the Frozen series, Groff’s role in this new film is being kept tightly under wraps. Considering his appearances on Mindhunter, it’s likely he’ll end up being one of the fiendish agents that chased our heroes in the previous trilogy.
With his casting, it also marks the second openly gay actor to be cast for this new sequel. Director Lana Wachowski appears to be assembling a diverse cast of actors to help make The Matrix 4 standout from the crowd. While it may be disappointing that she is going for big-name talent, it’s hard not to be impressed with everyone that has signed on so far.
We still don’t have a release date for The Matrix 4, but production will be starting shortly after the new year starts. With almost all of the principal roles filled, it’s bound to be smooth sailing to the editing room.
