mank cast fincher

After a long hiatus from feature filmmaking, David Fincher has decided to head back to the movies with Mank, a biopic of Citizen Kane screenwriter Herman Mankiewicz. We already know that Gary Oldman is playing Mankiewicz, but what about the rest of the cast, which includes Amanda Seyfried, Lily Collins, and more? Info has finally trickled out as to who’s who in the Mank cast, including which actor is playing Orson Welles. The answer may shock you! Or not! Just keep reading!

mindhunter season 2 trailer

Director Carl Franklin is no stranger to the crime genre. Before shooting four episodes of Mindhunter season two and his illustrious career directing television, Franklin helmed two of the best damn crime movies of the 1990s, One False Move and The Devil in the Blue Dress. He’s an old pro when it comes to crafting exceptional tension, which there’s no shortage of in his episodes of the David Fincher-produced series.

Mindhunter isn’t the first time Franklin and Fincher have collaborated; the Out of Time director first worked with him on House of Cards. As he explained to us, Fincher was more involved this time around on Mindhunter. Franklin, who thankfully has a movie brewing he might direct soon, talked to us about his time working with Fincher, the unique style and stars of the acclaimed series, and a nice memory about the late, great Bill Paxton. At the time of the interview, we had yet to see the episodes he directed before the interview, so it’s a broader discussion about the Netflix series.

Bill Tench looks like he has the world weighing on his shoulders in season two of Mindhunter. The hunch, the looks of worry and distress, you can feel the restrained F.B.I. agent often coming so close to breaking, especially during a stunning scene in which he confronts, not questions, Charles Manson. The character remains endlessly fascinating to watch, as does the rest of Mindhunter.

Season two marks another one of the many collaborations between actor Holt McCallany and director David Fincher, which is a relationship going back to Alien 3. In-person, McCallany is just as captivating as he is on screen. He has such a great voice, so after hanging onto his every word during our interview with him, I left the Mindhunter junket thinking, “No wonder David Fincher loves filming this guy.” Today, he’s perhaps the closest we have to old school actors like, to name an example, Burt Lancaster, sharing a similar combination of authority and vulnerability. McCallany looks and sounds like a movie star straight out of the ’50s, making him all the more perfect for Bill Tench.

I only saw a handful of episodes before speaking with the actor, hence no questions about the scene with Charles Manson, but he discussed with us the Son of Sam sequence, his longtime collaboration with David Fincher, and Bill Tench’s worldview.

mindhunter seasons

Netflix has yet to renew Mindhunter for a third season – because they like to toy with our emotions. But if all goes according to plan we could be in for five seasons total – at least according to producer David Fincher. Star Holt McCallany recently revealed that Fincher is hoping for five seasons total, which would mean even more serial killers – like Ted Bundy and John Wayne Gacy – would be heading our way. (Not literally; that would be terrifying.)

mindhunter season 2 review

Note: This is a spoiler-free review of the first three episodes of Mindhunter season 2. We’ll have a full spoiler-filled review of the entire season next week. 

After a long hiatus, Mindhunter returns for an all-new stylish season – one overflowing with doom, lit by flashlight beams cutting through clutching darkness. One gets the sense of escalation here – the more the FBI’s blossoming Behavioral Science Unit studies the serial killers, the more serial killers there seem to be. As if the very act of trying to understand these individuals is inadvertently spawning more of them. And there’s no end in sight. After a murder is uncovered close to home, Nancy Tench, wife of FBI agent Bill Tench, comments: “This sort of thing doesn’t happen here.” “It happens everywhere,” Bill replies. The darkness is spreading.

David Fincher's next movie

After five years away from making movies, director David Fincher has finally lined up his next feature film.

Mankiewicz, the co-writer of films like Citizen Kane and an uncredited writer on The Wizard of Oz. Gary Oldman (The Dark Knight) will star, and Fincher’s own father wrote the screenplay.

So send the kids out of the room, put on some headphones, and enjoy the naughty cartoon hijinks!
