Jonathan Groff Shot the Same 9-Minute 'Mindhunter' Scene 75 Times

Jonathan Groff attends a For Your Consideration event for his Netflix series Mindhunter on Friday night (June 1) at Raleigh Studios in Los Angeles.

The 33-year-old actor was joined at the event by co-stars Anna Torv, Holt McCallany, and Cameron Britton, as well as director David Fincher.

David opened up about how he had his cast do many, many takes of each scene.

“The scene with Happy [Anderson] was 11 pages. We had three cameras outside the cage, and we’d do a nine-and-a-half-minute take,” David said (via IndieWire). “We didn’t have a break, well we broke for lunch — I would say we did it 75 times in the day.”

David was really specific with us about every single word, and every single turn of the scene; he was critically specific about the purpose,” Jonathan said. “On the days of shooting, we would go in the room, sit down, and talk about how leaning forward could change the dynamic of a conversation.”

Jonathan Groff Says He 'Had No Idea' People Thought His 'Mindhunter' Character Is Sociopath

Jonathan Groff happily poses with his Mindhunter co-stars Anna Torv, Holt McCallany and Cameron Britton during Day Two of the 2018 Vulture Festival presented By AT&T at Milk Studios on Sunday (May 20) in New York City.

“Everyone has said to me after they watch the show, that they thought the character was a sociopath,” Jonathan, 33, told the audience (via Vulture). “And I had no idea! No idea.”

“So many of my friends were texted me, saying ‘Okay, so when are you gonna start killing people?’,” Jonathan added. “I think the thing that they are aligning with… that I think is very similar, that we start to see more and more in our characters is this characteristic of narcissism and becoming self obsessed.”

Also in attendance at day two of the festival was Ava DuVernay, Johnny Knoxville, Ray Donovan‘s Jon Voight, Liev Schreiber, writer David Hollander, Susan Sarandon and Eddie Marsan, as well as Vanessa Bayer, Phoebe Robinson and Gillian Jacobs of Netflix’s Ibiza.
