We know that season 2 of HBO's hit series True Detective is now filming and it will star Colin Farrell, Vince Vaughn, Rachel McAdams and Taylor Kitsch. We can now add one more name to the list, 80's rock legend Rick Springfield.
Just finished my 1st day of shooting for season 2 of HBO's True Detective. What a great script. Working w/ Colin Farrell & Rachel McAdams!

Though most folks know Springfield from his hit songs Jessie's Girl, Human Touch and Don't Talk To Strangers – he has also been a regular working actor for almost as long. While putting out a multitude of albums over the years, Songs For The End Of The World being the most recent, he's also starred in television series like General Hospital, Human Target and High Tide, a movie pilot for Forever Knight and recently on Showtime's Californication where he played an exaggerated version of himself.
It's unknown at this time what or how big of a role Springfield has, but his casting seems to be a very interesting choice.
And now, since most of you are probably thinking about this anyway.
