Colin Farrell announced last weekend that he was joining the cast of the critically acclaimed crime drama True Detective, HBO has now just confirmed that Farrell and Vince Vaughn will star in the series’ second season.
Neither were on my radar….but there’s some interesting casting going on here.
Farrell will star as Ray Velcoro, a “compromised detective” caught between his bosses and the mob. Vaughn will play Frank Semyon, a career criminal about to lose his empire after the death of a business partner. Director Justin Lin is slated to direct the first two episodes in the new run (Lin is known for his work in the The Fast and The Furious franchise) More casting will be announced soon but it seems there are many names rumored to be in the mix such as Friday Night Lights star Taylor Kitsch, The Notebook‘s Rachel McAdams, and Mad Men’s Elisabeth Moss
So are you happy with Farrell and Vaughn? If not who would be your ideal cast?
