Casting News: 'The Matrix 4' Adds 'Frozen' Actor Jonathan Groff
The cast of The Matrix 4 has expanded again with the addition of Frozen/Mindhunter actor Jonathan Groff.
Groff, who voices Kristoff in the Frozen movies and stars as Agent Holden Ford on Netflix’s crime drama Mindhunter, has joined the eagerly-anticipated sequel in an unknown role, Collider has learned.
Franchise regulars Keanu Reeves, Carrie-Ann Moss, and Jada Pinkett Smith are all returning for the fourth movie in the visionary sci-fi franchise, which will be a rather belated follow-up to 2003's The Matrix Revolutions.
Other new cast members include Neil Patrick Harris, Aquaman's Yahya Abdul-Mateen II, and Game of Thrones alum Jessica Henwick, who's rumored to be playing a villain.
Lana Wachowski, who co-created the franchise with sister Lilly Wachowski, is returning to the director's chair for the fourth movie, which is due to start shooting in early 2020. Lana has co-written the script with David Mitchell and Aleksander Hemon, both of whom worked on her cult Netflix series Sense8, which sadly came to an end last year.
Groff, 34, is also known for portraying King George III in the original Broadway production of Hamilton, and for his TV roles in Glee, The Normal Heart, and Looking. In the latter, his on-off love interest was portrayed by Being Human and Doctor Who favorite Russell Tovey.
