Friend of boxing Holt McCallany has been busy of late, both inside the sphere of the sweet science, which he adores, and also in front of cameras, which, frankly, adore him.
The New York born and bred actor, who got bitten hard by he boxing bug when he played Teddy Atlas in a movie about Mike Tyson, has guested twice on the Everlast “Talkbox” podcast, and we've heard in depth how he sees pugilism and also some ins and outs regarding some of his projects.
No, I don't pretend I'm not a fan of the actor, who is gracious and entertaining when he comes to Everlast. And his latest project, in which he plays an FBI agent in the 70s into the 80s period piece “Mindhunter,” is A grade fare.
I binged on season one, and so have pestered the actor as to when season two would drop. The pestering has paid off, season two has a start date, on Netflix.
I asked McCallany how he found the latest International Boxing Hall of Fame weekend, and he weighed in:
“My weekend as Grand Marshal at the International Boxing Hall of Fame was one of the most memorable experiences of my life,” McCallany told me. “Director Ed Brophy and his team do an amazing job, and I was stunned how many “Mindhunter” fans there are in Canastota! It's a great city, and boy do they love boxing. I'll definitely be back.”
So, to that end…
Circle August 16 on your calendar. That's when season two of “Mindhunter” drops to Netflix.
