|Well, that is certainly a choice...|
HBO has confirmed that Colin Farrell and Vince Vaughn will star in the second season of Nic Pizzolatto's anthology crime drama, playing two of three police officers tracking "a career criminal" that forces them to "navigate a web of conspiracy in the aftermath of a murder."
While it is true that Farrell and Vaughn had been rumored for weeks to be on the casting shortlist, to say that they were the front runners would in many minds have been a joke of some sort. Most of the original hype for the first season of True Detective came from the casting of Woody Harrelson and Matthew McConaughey, two A-list actors of considerable skill and acclaim.
These two...not so much.
However, it is important to not put the cart before the horse on this one. After all, it could surprise us all. Vaughn and Farrell could prove to take the excellent scripts and broody nature of the series and run with it. And let's not forget, creator Nic Pizzolatto has stated that this season there will be three detectives, one of which we have not been privy to as of yet.
Fingers crossed it will be not a white man. There are plenty of those to be found already. Aw hell, it's gonna be David Arquette isn't it. NOOOOOO!!!
