One of the best shows of last year was Netflix and David Fincher’s serial killer series Mindhunter starring Anna Torv, Jonathan Groff, Holt McCallany, and Cameron Britton as notorious serial killer Ed Kemper.
And today we have an all-new behind-the-scenes video for the series called “Cameron Britton Transforms Into Disturbed Killer Ed Kemper” and it, fittingly, features actor Cameron Britton pulling back the curtain to reveal his process as he transforms from nice guy actor into disturbed serial killer Ed Kemper.
Mindhunter is directed by David Fincher, Asif Kapadia, Tobias Lindholm, and Andrew Douglas (The Amityville Horror). Written by Joe Penhall (The Road) and Jennifer Haley (Hemlock Grove), the series was inspired by the memoir of FBI veteran John R Douglas, Mindhunter: Inside the FBI’s Elite Serial Crime Unit (written with Mark Olshaker). Penhall (The Road) created the series. Fincher, Joshua Donen (Gone Girl) Charlize Theron (Girlboss), and Cean Chaffin (Fight Club) are executive producers.
The first season is currently streaming on Netflix.
The series follows ambitious FBI agent Holden Ford (Jonathan Groff) as he struggles to comprehend incarcerated killers so that he might use this knowledge to catch others. He’s teamed with experienced agent Bill Tench (Holt McCallany) in the Behavioral Science Unit and will work with his sometimes reluctant partner to find new methods of investigation. Together they will meet some of America’s gravest killers, including Edmund Kemper (played by a mesmerizing Cameron Britton) – and face the cynicism and scorn of the tradition-bound hierarchy of the 1970s’ Federal Bureau of Investigation. Ford will risk empathizing with ‘evil’ in order to save lives. But, as Tench says, when arguing the case for their work: “How do we get ahead of crazy if we don’t know how crazy thinks?”
