With the help of his father (special guest star Laurence Fishburne), Dre begins to try to create a sense of ethnic identity for the members of his family that will allow them to honour their background while preparing them to embrace the future.

Jonathan Groff Mindhunter

He has been playing the lead role as Holden Ford since 2017 and has appeared in 10 episodes in this TV show up to now. Catching a criminal often requires the authorities to get inside the villain’s mind to figure out how he thinks. That’s the job of FBI agents Holden Ford and Bill Tench.
They attempt to understand and catch serial killers by studying their damaged psyches. Along the way, the agents pioneer the development of modern serial-killer profiling. The crime drama has a strong pedigree behind the camera, with Oscar-nominated director David Fincher and Oscar-winning actress Charlize Theron among the show’s executive producers.

Helping him in the quest is Barney, a friend with endless — often outrageous — opinions, a penchant for suits and a foolproof way to meet women. When Ted meets Robin, he is sure it’s love at first sight, but the affair fizzles into friendship. Voice-over by Bob Saget (“Full House”) tells the story through flashbacks.
