‘True Detective’ Season 2 Leads Confirmed!

The second season of Nic Pizzolatto’s moody crime drama True Detective has a couple of big names now in place in the lead roles with Colin Farrell and Vince Vaughn first to be confirmed.

Farrell, best known for his roles in Minority Report, Phone Booth and In Bruges, will play the role of Ray Velcoro, ‘a compromise detective whose allegiances are torn between his masters in a corrupt police department and the mobster who owns him’.

While we’re used to seeing him in comedies such as Old School, Dodgeball: A True Underdog Story and Wedding Crashers, Vaughn has been cast as 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’.

Judging by the official release from HBO, and several other articles, there are still a few more shoes left to fill:

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

Of the remaining two police officers, Paul Woodrugh is expected to be played by Friday Night Light‘s Taylor Kitsch while the role of Ani Bezzerdies seems to be linked with just about every actress in Hollywood.

The two new leads take over from Woody Harrelson, who played Detective Marty Hart, and Matthew McConaughey who received an Emmy nomination for his role as Detective Rust Cohle in season 1 which saw the Louisana Police State detectives Hart and Cohle hunt down a serial killer in Louisiana over a period of 17 years.

Perhaps Farrell and Vaughn will be hoping for their own ‘McConaissance’ as production on True Detective Season 2 begins in California this autumn with Fast & Furious’s Justin Lin directing the first two instalments of the eight hour-long episodes.
