In case you're late to the party, HBO's crime drama True Detective is really effing great. Starring Woody Harrelson and the resurgent Matthew McConaughey, it premiered back in January, wrapped up in March, and just yesterday earned itself whole slew of Emmy nominations.
Here's the thing, though. True Detective is one of them "anthology" series, which means every season will have a completely new storyline, a completely new set of characters and, thus, a completely new cast. And given how much ass Harrelson and McConaughey kicked, it's not going to be easy for the second season to live up to the first.
However, word on the street (and by street I mean internet) today is that HBO is gunning for Colin Farrell and Taylor Kitsch for the two male leads, which is good news for fans of the series. Farrell has turned into quite a fine actor in recent years, and while Kitsch's John Carter and Battleship both sucked, he was great in Friday Night Lights.
Will Season 2 of True Detective be as good as Season 1? That remains to be seen. But if these casting rumors pan out, it probably won't suck.
