- “That was a close one...”
Griffin is a member of the Arcanian race and the last who has the unique ability to foresee the infinite potential outcomes that are dependent on the actions taken in any given scenario. He is also the sole possessor of the ArcNet Shield, which Kay requires to prevent the Boglodite invasion of Earth in 2012. Griffin is portrayed by Michael Stuhlbarg.
In 1969, Griffin inadvertently meets with Agent K and Agent J at Andy Warhol's apartment. He astonishes J with his extensive knowledge of future events. However, when Boris the animal arrives on the scene, which Griffin correctly predicts, he flees immediately. Before he leaves, Griffin imparts to K and J that he will give them the item that they require most if they meet again. When they find Griffin again at Shea Stadium, he reveals how he sees the future by displaying the World Series taking place three months in the future.
After handing K the ArcNet Shield to be placed on the Apollo 11 rocket, he fails to predict Boris' arrival, who snatches him via motorcycle. After a brief chase on vertical cycles, the MIB agents manage to recapture Griffin and elude Boris. The MIB agents then escort Griffin back to the Headquarters, wherein they use jetpacks to travel to Florida to intercept the impending launch. However, they are impeded by several military officers on patrol, but Griffin manages to convince the colonel to assist them by showing him his ability. Griffin refuses to progress with K and J, imparting once J is out of earshot that "I can't bear to watch this part.".
With the timeline restored, Griffin is once again seen in the diner with J and K, who are seemingly oblivious to his presence. He then refers to the audience stating that everything turned out alright. However, Griffin quickly predicts an impending asteroid collision with the Earth because Kay forgot to leave a tip for the waiter. The crisis is averted when Kay returns and leaves some money on the bench, as a satellite diverts the asteroid's path, thus the Earth is safe for now. Soon after that, Griffin lets out a sign of relief, remarking "That was a close one."
Shea stadium was remade with computers due to the fact that it was torn down a few years ago.
He is arcanian in race, and arcane is affiliated with magic, a reference to his fortune teller-esque ability.
Griffin seems to reference the future often.
