HBO finally came clean yesterday about Vince Vaughn and Colin Farrell officially joining True Detectiveís Season 2, but they were mum on who might be filling the female lead. Thatís because theyíre 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 isnít talking. Showrunner Nic Pizzolatto isnít talking. But Colin Farrell is totally talking and over the weekend he confirmed his involvement in the second season of the detective series. Thatís one casting down and a ton more to go.
True Detective is coming off of a tightly written and critically acclaimed first season. It makes sense that HBO would want True Detective Season 2. Here's everything the world knows about the follow-up...
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 HBOís True Detective. You know, just with the nihilism taken down to proper broadcast standards.
Season 2 of HBOís 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 Timeís 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 yearís Emmy nominations was the flippant broadness of the TV Academyís 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 actorís 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?
In the fastest news to zip around the entertainment-verse today, it seems like True Detective may have landed another Season 2 lead. Soon after news broke that veteran actor Colin Farrell is in talks to join the critically-acclaimed drama, news broke that his partner in crime will likely be none other than Taylor Kitsch.
What fans are really hungry for now is news about who will take the two stellar actorsí places once Season 2 rolls around. Hereís one big clue: Colin Farrell.
Following up on the lengthy list of Emmy nominations that was announced today, we've picked over the choices the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences made with regards to the main categories, and we found quite a few reasons to applaud the nominees, and just as many reasons to to wave our fists and complain over the talented actors and outstanding TV shows that didn't make the cut this year.
There is one giant, glaring issue with these Emmy Nominations that every single man, woman and child in the free world should share. It makes no sense whatsoever that True Detective and Fargo are not in the same category. None. And rather than a weird little quirk, the diverting paths of those two shows are a clear example of a larger problem thatís only getting worse.
