HBO and 'True Detective' season 2 have only formally confirmed Colin Farrell and Vince Vaughn among the cast, with Taylor Kitsch and Rachel McAdams ostensibly assured, though the dark and dreamy drama has kept right on casting. Kelly Reilly, Abigail Spencer, Michael Irby and Leven Rambin have all been added to 'True Detective' season 2 but as whom, you ask?
'True Detective' season 2 has been something of a Hollywood guessing game, even with HBO's official confirmation that Colin Farrell and Vince Vaughn would comprise two of the show's new leads, following Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson of the first season. Taylor Kitsch has long been associated with the HBO drama's second season as well, but has the 'John Carter' star officially confirmed his role?
One of the biggest missteps in recent years was 'John Carter,' the film that Disney hoped to launch into a new franchise with leading man Taylor Kitsch as the titular military man who's transported to Mars, where he becomes a hero in an epic battle. But that didn't quite pan out, and now the rights to 'John Carter' have reverted back to the publishing company of original author Edgar Rice Burroughs -- and they'd like to give John Carter another shot at big screen glory.
While HBO finally made 'True Detective' season 2 castings official the other day with confirmations of Colin Farrell and Vince Vaughn, the lead female role remained in upheaval with at least 7-10 major actresses up for the part. Now, a new reports says Rachel McAdams has all-but-definitively landed the female role of 'True Detective' season 2, with Taylor Kitsch's role as the fourth soon to follow.
Casting on 'True Detective' season 2 has been equal parts crapshoot, publicist spin and investigative free-for-all, but where we thought a female lead had been narrowed between 'Mad Men''s Elisabeth Moss and Rachel McAdams, the dam has burst wide open to suggest that Jessica Biel, Rosario Dawson, Marvel favorite Jaimie Alexander and at least 4 more names are all in the running for our next 'True Detective' mystery.
HBO's 'True Detective' has kept details of of the second season more in mystery than that of the show's own investigations, but before any casting announcements are confirmed, we at last have some real info. HBO has confirmed that season 2 will begin shooting soon, aiming for a summer 2015 premiere date, while shoring up the identities of its three leading characters.
