God Friended Me has kept the identity of Simon Hayes a mystery since winter break when the friends finally put the pieces together. Adam Goldberg was cast in the role earlier this year, and last night, debuted on the show for the first time.
Miles (Brandon Michael Hall), Cara (Violett Beane), and Rakesh (Suraj Sharma) have been working to solve who is behind the “God account” and all of their research keeps leading back to one person — Simon Hayes.
Was Adam Goldberg cast as the owner of the mysterious ‘God account?’
At the TCA’s, it was announced that Adam Goldberg would be joining the cast of God Friended Me. Simon Hayes is the most mysterious role on the show, especially because all of the signs point to him being behind the “God account.”
When he debuted last night, it was clear something was off. He had a meeting with Rakesh and offered him a job, but it would mean he would have to move away.
When Simon Hayes received a counteroffer from him, it looked like things were going to play out just the way they were meant to.
