Jonathan Groff Reveals He First Met with David Fincher for Justin Timberlake's 'Social Network' Role

Jonathan Groff opens up about the audition process was like while going for the lead role of Holden Ford in his new Netflix show Mindhunter during a BUILD Series panel on Wednesday (October 19) in New York City.

“I said yes immediately before reading what it was just because I’m such a [director] David Fincher fan,” the 32-year-old actor expressed. “The material seemed so exciting and working with David so I put myself on tape and the next day they asked me to fly out on my day off from Hamilton to go to L.A to met with him.”

Jonathan then revealed that he originally first met with David when he auditioned for The Social Network: “I met him seven years before when I auditioned for The Social Network for the Justin Timberlake role, Sean Parker. Some auditions you just remember forever,” Jonathan admitted. “Sitting with David Fincher and working with him for a couple hours on that material, I just became obsessed with his brain and the way that he talked. He’s just a charismatic, intelligent person. Obviously I didn’t get that part but I never forgot that experience.”

“As an actor the scenes are so meaty and the characters that we’re talking to and the character I get to play is so complicated, multi-layered and interesting,” Jonathan added about Mindhunter. “I would leave set on a high and couldn’t wait to get to work everyday to sort of dive into the material.”

Ellen DeGeneres Delivers Powerful Message on 'Me Too' Movement

Ellen DeGeneres Delivers Powerful Message on 'Me Too' Movement

Ellen DeGeneres is speaking about the “me too” movement, and speaking about sexual misconduct happening all over the world every day.

“This is not a male thing or a female thing. It is not a Hollywood thing or a political thing. This is a human thing. And it happens in the workplace, it happens in families, it happens all over the world, and we are all the same. We all want the same thing—we want respect and love and kindness. And if I could have those three things—and a new iPhone 10—I would be complete,” Ellen said on her show.

Ellen continued that from a young age, “girls are taught to stay quiet and be nice” while “boys are stronger and somehow, [girls] are less than.”

“Women and even some men are sharing their stories on Facebook and Twitter—some of them for the first time. And people are ‘liking’ or ‘thumbs upping’ or ‘hearting’ the post. And it’s hard to know which is the right response. Is it a crying face emoji, ’cause I’m sad that that happened to you? Or is it a smiley face to say, ‘Good for you for speaking out?’ I’m not sure about the etiquette, but I do know that hell hath no fury like a woman with a Twitter account,” Ellen continued.

Jared Leto keeps it cool as he sits down onstage to speak at the D.Luxe Conference presented by WSJ. Magazine held at The Montage Laguna Beach on Wednesday (October 18) in Laguna Beach, Calif.

“I’ve always been entrepreneurial ever since I sold dope as a kid. I’m sure I’m not the only one,” the 45-year-old Oscar-winning actor expressed at his panel. “I hate wasting time. I’m obsessed with efficiency. I’ve been practicing saying no—even things that are opportunities. Opportunity cost is a real thing.”

“I love to work. I don’t do dinners, I don’t do lunches, I don’t do breakfasts. I just fucking work,” Jared continued. “That’s what I love to do, because I love to make things and share them with the world… and I do not take it for granted for one second.”
