"Looking" and "Mindhunter" star Jonathan Groff has joined the cast of "The Matrix 4," according to the entertainment website Collider.

Groff joins Keanu Reeves and Carrie-Ann Moss, who are reprising their "Matrix" roles Neo and Trinity, respectively. Also joining the cast is "Watchmen" star Yahya Abdul-Mateen II in an unknown role. Also Jada Pinkett Smith will return as Niobe. Jessica Henwick and out actor Neil Patrick Harris are also joining the highly anticipated project.
