David Fincher’s ‘Mind Hunter’ Casts Holt McCallany in Lead Role


“Gangster Squad” star Holt McCallany will reunite with David Fincher for Netflix’s “Mind Hunters.” According to The Hollywood Reporter, McCallany will play Bill Tench, an “inquisitive, skilled and forward-thinking detective.”

McCallany has appeared in several of Fincher’s films, including “Fight Club” and “Alien 3.” He has also had roles in “Blue Bloods,” “Three Kings,” “Lights Out” and more. In “Mind Hunters,” he will join a cast that includes “Fringe’s” Anna Torv and “Hamilton” star Jonathan Groff.

Based on the 1996 nonfiction novel “Mind Hunter: Inside the FBI’s Elite Serial Crime Unit” by John Douglas and Mark Olshanker, the TV adaptation, set in 1979, follows two FBI agents who interview serial killers in an attempt to solve current cases.

From a script by Joe Penhall (“The Road”), “Mind Hunter” is executive produced by Fincher and Charlize Theron for Netflix. The project was originally developed at HBO by FOX 21.

    Charles S.Dutton in Alien 3 was one badass dude and stole the show in my opinion.
    Forest Whitaker in Panic Room was really good.
    Taraji P.Henson in Benjamin Button,who was nominated for an Oscar for her role.
    So as you can see,there are a few of black actors that stand out in his movies.

    Fuck, maybe you could spend 15 seconds of your day not worrying about racial quotas for every one of the billions of experiences during your lifetime.
