Casting news for the second season of HBO’s True Detective has been almost as much of a guessing game as anything steeped in reality. Luckily, the leads have all been made official now, but there are still roles to be filled. But not this one anymore.
With the amount of buzz and quasi-secrecy surrounding the casting process for the second season of HBO’s True Detective, you’d think that either J.J. Abrams or Christopher Nolan had something to do with it. HBO has finally announced its newest cast members, along with these nifty character details.
TV buzz doesn’t get much bigger than it does for HBO’s True Detective, and the trek towards Season 2 is thankfully in full swing. The anthology drama just added four new cast members to join the four actors that were previously confirmed.
For months, numerous names were tossed out related to next season's True Detective cast. In September, Colin Farrell and Vince Vaughn were officially confirmed for Season 2 of HBO’s acclaimed series and today, Taylor Kitsch also says he will play a lead in True Detective Season 2.
While we’re over here wondering which actresses are going to land roles in Season 2 of HBO’s True Detective, Kate Mara and Ellen Page are busy showing us what Season 2 should be like. If only we could see them over our computer monitors.
HBO finally came clean yesterday about Vince Vaughn and Colin Farrell officially joining True Detective’s Season 2, but they were mum on who might be filling the female lead. That’s because they’re still trying to find someone, and it turns out they might just be talking to many more actresses than we previously thought.
Vince Vaughn And Colin Farrell Officially Set For True Detective Season 2, Here's Who They're Playing
HBO has finally confirmed that Vince Vaughn and Colin Farrell are on board to star in True Detective Season 2. There have been a lot of reports about casting for the second season of the crime-focused anthology series. Today comes word from HBO that two of the leads are on board and there's more casting to come.
True Detective has worked extremely hard to keep its second season under wraps. HBO isn’t talking. Showrunner Nic Pizzolatto isn’t talking. But Colin Farrell is totally talking and over the weekend he confirmed his involvement in the second season of the detective series. That’s one casting down and a ton more to go.
With cable having already set an extremely high bar where anthologies are concerned, NBC is throwing its hat in the ring by ordering the crime drama Manhunt straight-to-series, as the network is presumably hoping this project will capture the pop culture zeitgeist in the same way as HBO’s True Detective. You know, just with the nihilism taken down to proper broadcast standards.
Season 2 of HBO’s critical hit True Detective will offer a slew possibilities in terms of casting. While Season 1 focused on a small team of two detectives, Season 2 will focus on cops from three different areas trying to solve a murder mystery that leads to more bodies piling up. One of the series leads is reportedly going to be played by a woman, and word on the street is that About Time’s Rachel McAdams is vying for a role alongside the earlier announced Elisabeth Moss.
The first directorial candidate for True Detective's Season 2 is reportedly Justin Lin, best known for his work on the Fast & Furious franchise, for which he directed four of the six previously released films. Does this mean True Detective is going to have more explosions and massive highway set pieces?
Never mind that Breaking Bad wrapped up the second half of its final season nearly a year ago. Out of sight definitely didn't mean out of mind for the Academy voters this year, as the acclaimed AMC drama dominated the Emmy Awards, facing off against HBO's Game of Thrones and True Detective, among other series, and coming out on top. That includes closing out the awards show by winning the grand prize of Outstanding Drama series one last time.
One of the biggest stories coming out of this year’s Emmy nominations was the flippant broadness of the TV Academy’s rules for what series went into which categories. Looking to avoid all manner of category controversy are the Golden Globes.
When consider female leads for the second season of True Detective, Elisabeth Moss seems like a really obvious choice. Not only has she played a detective before, but she's a fantastic actor and would be an asset to the HBO anthology series in any role.
The latest actor’s name circling True Detective's second season is none other than Vince Vaughn, who is reportedly in preliminary discussions to take a part in the darkness that Season 2 will bring. Is this decision money, baby?
