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.
