We were dubious of recent 'True Detective' season 2 gossip that seemed to cement Brad Pitt as a leading contender for the as-yet-unconfirmed 2015 followup to HBO's breakout drama, but the latest major Hollywood name in play proves a bit more promising. Is 'Interstellar' star Jessica Chastain our female lead for 'True Detective' season 2, or is the rumor mill only spouting wishful thinking?

HBO's ‘True Detective’ has neither completed the course of its eight-episode run, nor has that Nic Pizzolato-scripted series even officially attained a season 2 renewal, but recently the internet has been abuzz with #TrueDetectiveSeason2 casting choices, both real and fake. The meme may have run its course, but we decided to take a serious approach to pool Hollywood A-list talent we’d like to see in ‘True Detective’ season 2!

Is Jessica Chastain a movie star? Probably not. At least not yet. However, this weekend proved that she's well on her way to being one. Headlining the top two films  at the box office in a single weekend is a great start. The Oscar nomination certainly doesn't hurt either.

'Mama' Review

The "Creepy Kid" movie is officially a genre. From 'Village of the Damned' to 'The Bad Seed' to shots of Danny Torrence spaced out and making noises from the back of his throat in 'The Shining,' there's something that cuts from the screen directly to whichever gland releases that “flight” endorphin in your brain.
