Hot off his role in the hit HBO Max series, The Flight Attendant, Griffin Matthews will make the jump to Disney+ in another highly anticipated series.
Entertainment Tonight has revealed that Matthews has joined the cast of She-Hulk: Attorney At Law in a recurring role. It is unknown who Matthews will be playing in Marvel Studios’ legal comedy. Matthews shared his excitement to the outlet.
“Never in my wildest dreams did I think I would join the Marvel Universe! This was never a genre that I thought an actor like me (in my package) could fit into. The most exciting part of joining the MCU was being told by our director and writers: ‘Do not try to fit. Just be you.’ And that gave me the freedom to run wild…”Griffin Matthews (Transcription via The Direct)
