Jonathan Groff and Stephen Colbert Sing MINDHUNTER: THE MUSICAL

Jonathan Groff and Stephen Colbert Sing MINDHUNTER: THE MUSICAL

Last month, Netflix debuted its newest crime drama, Mindhunter, which depicts the early days of the FBI’s Behavioral Science Unit in the late ’70s. Broadway star and Frozen voice actor Jonathan Groff plays the lead role in this David Fincher produced series that offers a very bleak look at the worst of humanity. But during his guest appearance on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, Groff was able to show off some of his vocal range as he performed a song from Mindhunter: The Musical, which we wish were a real thing.

Stephen Colbert couldn’t resist joining in on the song as well, and we have to admit, it’s really catchy! It’s almost enough to make us want a real Mindhunter: The Musical, with the original cast from the show reprising their roles. While the music and the dark subject matter may seem like an odd fit, Collider points out that this isn’t the first time that Mindhunter has been given some hilariously out of place music. Comedian Paul F. Tompkins posted his own “alternate” take on the theme song in October, and we loved it.

While Mindhunter was somewhat overshadowed by Stranger Things 2, the early indications are that a second season order is likely. Hopefully we’ll get more of these amazingly off-the-wall Mindhunter musical mash ups.
