True Detective

The casting rumours for season 2 of True Detective have been doing the rounds now for a few weeks, with is said to be that there will be 4 leads in the series.

In the last day HBO have now confirmed that both Colin Farrell and Vince Vaughn will play 2 of those leads. They have also announced that director Justin Lin will direct the first 2 episodes of an 8 episode run.

Season 2 of True Detective is said to be about:

Three police officers and a career criminal must navigate a web of conspiracy in the aftermath of a murder.

Farrell will play, Ray Velcoro, a compromised detective whose allegiances are torn between his masters in a corrupt police department and the mobster who owns him with Vaughn to play, Frank Semyon, a career criminal in danger of losing his empire when his move into legitimate enterprise is upended by the murder of a business partner.

With 2 more leads still to be confirmed, with at least one expected to be a woman, it’s really exciting to see who they bring into the show.
