HBO teased us with a teaser a month ago for the new season of True Detective, but now we get a full trailer with dialogue and internal conflicts and fancy tracking shots. I’m excited for this season because I’m glad they decided to take up a different setting and storyline. It’s still cops going after bad guys, but the first season of True Detective was one of the most depressing things I’ve ever watched. It was great, but I don’t know if my psyche could handle another season of that. Season 2 is set in LA and the possibilities are endless for filming there. The cast is pretty dynamite too, and I have a feeling Taylor Kitsch is going to be the show stealer by the time the season’s over. June 21st can’t come soon enough.
Exactly 24 hours after the leak of Colin Farrell staring in season 2 of ‘True Detective’ we have found his co-star. Longtime funny man and swingers star, Vince Vaughn will be starring alongside Farrell in the upcoming second installment of the critically acclaimed HBO series. Personally I love this move. Never before have you seen these two guys starring side-by-side, because, honestly, they are so very different. I am excited to see what Vaughn brings to the drama table.
Colin Farrell says he will star in HBO’s True Detective‘s upcoming second season, according to an interview published in the Irish newspaper The Sunday World, cited by multiple outlets, including The New York Times. The cable network had no immediate comment. A source close to the matter had told E! News in July that the Irish actor was being considered for a role.
“I’m doing the second series. I’m so excited,” The Sunday World quoted Farrell as saying.
True detective just got a whole lot more Irish. While they have not released a co-star, if there even is one, I am excited for Farrell to join the new installment. While I though the first True Detective lacked in story, I can say confidently that they hit the nail on the head for casting and acting. Will Colin’s accent be joining us for season 2? A man can dream.
Give me “S.W.A.T” Colin Farrell or give me death.
