Has True Detective Uncovered One Of Its Cast?

true-detectiveAfter the first season of HBO's breakout hit True Detective, folks have been wondering what exactly they were going to do next. The story following stars Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson was wrapped up in season one and the same two detectives having a story worth second case on the level of the first stretches the believable level a bit.

So the plan was to do the second season with a whole new cast focusing on three investigators and of course speculation for that cast has been all over the place including name like: Colin Farrell, Taylor Kitsch, Vince Vaughn and Elizabeth Moss.

If you believe what you read in newspapers and on-line, one of three roles may finally been cast. Colin Farrell told and Irish newspaper that he will appear in Season 2 of the series. The Dublin-born actor said: "I'm doing the second series. I'm so excited. I know it will be eight episodes and take around four or five months to shoot."

Farrell also told the Sunday World that the filming will take place in Los Angeles which goes along with the reports that the season will focus on the death of a corrupt city manager of a fictional California city who's found brutally murdered amid a potentially groundbreaking transportation deal that would forever change freeway gridlock in the state.

The casting has not been confirmed by HBO at this point.
