Jonathan Groff – the voice of square-jawed ice farmer Kristoff in Frozen and Frozen II – is joining the cast of the new Matrix movie.

According to Collider, Groff, who also plays Agent Holden Ford in the Netflix series Mindhunter, will join Keanu Reeves and Carrie-Anne Moss on the bill in The Matrix 4, though his role is being kept under wraps.

Though how he looks in that suit in the David Fincher-produced FBI series, it's being rumoured that he could be lined up as one of the suited and booted AI 'agents' in the Matrix itself.
