Well shit we still don’t know the female lead for True Detective‘s second season, but at least we’ve got one casting confirmation. Colin Farrell has let slip he’s in the cast.
Time is a Mean Girls reference! That’s if this latest batch of True Detective news holds true. Apparently Elisabeth Moss ain’t nailed down the female lead for the show’s second season, ’cause Rachel McAdams is now circling it.
If True Detective‘s Guardians get their way, Time will be a Closed Airport Strip where Nietzsche drag races Lovecraft. That’s right. Them fuckers are apparently courting my boy Justin Lin to direct some of the second season.
Colin Farrell can act. Can act damn well. When he chooses to. So if he ends up on True Detective‘s second season, I expect great fucking things from him. Bring the glorious bastard on.
This site has already documented the news that getting True Detective season two off the ground is an arduous as fuck process. So it really isn’t surprising that the show’s creator Nick Pizzajaredletto has come out and said he can’t imagine the jam going more than three seasons. That is, until the HBO Monster unleashes what we around the asylum call the Equalizer. You know: a fucking fuck load of cash.
Looks like the second season of True Detective is going to be the product of intense madness and dedication. I know I’ve said this before, but I’m going to say it again. Because I come from a long line of people who lose their minds and repeat their senile blatherings. You’ll know I’ve truly lost it when you find me uttering much like my Nana did, “IS CAT FOOD MADE *FOR* CATS, OR *OF* CATS?!” while wearing nothing but evidence for the effects of gravity on the human body. For now, yeah, I’m just going to repeat this: I don’t envy the people involved in following up the first season of True Detective.
Matthew McConaughey has said that he’d be up for doing more True Detective. A factoid uttered from his gorgeous mouth that contradicts pretty much everything he said in the press while the show was airing. My two worthless cents? No thanks. Cohle is one of my favorite characters in TV history, and he established his vice-like grip on my heart in a taut eight episodes. As much as I’d like to see his glorious shitstache and gaunt cheek bones one more time, his return would run contrary to so much of what made the show so fucking wonderful in the first place. Let the wonderful coda the season ended on remain its coda.
Well, I’m glad that True Detective‘s second season doesn’t seem any less bonkers than its first. In addition to letting us know the show will have three leads, creator Nic Pizzolatto has revealed the show is exploring the Psychosphere of California. I have no idea what the fuck this means, but killer. Gnarly.
Jessica Chastain has been offered the lead role in True Detective‘s second season. Fuck yes. I’ve been a fan of Chastain since Tree of Life and Zero Dark Thirty, so this casting has me rather excited. Accept the role, Jessica! For all of us!
ALL THE FUCKING CAPITAL LETTERS FOR THIS ONE. I’m so turnt up (as the hip ones say?) on the wild Mountainous Dew this morning, I don’t even care. (If you can’t tell, I fucking hate myself.) None the less, I’m here to inject your beautiful, mushy ocular-holes with some wonderful True Detective x Hardy Boys cultural mash-up.
‘Cause fuck you, Rust Cohle is eternal.
