"Unfortunately, no one can be told what the Matrix is. You have to see it for yourself."

I could SO see something like that in my head. There would have to be a dramatic pause between "You" and the "have to see it.." of course.
Seriously, I'm happy with this casting choice. He can definitely serve as a strong lead and the series is also bringing in at least one other new character I believe. It will be a true test of the show's formula as to how well it will do from here out.
