Rachel McAdams and Taylor Kitsch
"I'm doing the second series," Farrell said. "I'm so excited." HBO reportedly has a few other big names circling including Rachel McAdams, Elisabeth Moss, and Taylor Kitsch, according to Entertainment Weekly.
About the second season, Farrell said, "I know very little about it, but we're shooting in the environs of Los Angeles, which is great. It means I get to stay at home and see the kids."
Farrell is only the first of four rumored leads to officially confirm his involvement with two other actors, Taylor Kitsch and Vince Vaughn, still in the mix but not confirmed. Kitsch would play another detective investigating “the bloody murder of a corrupt city businessman found dead the night before a major transportation deal”
Season 2 of “True Detective” is finally starting to take shape.
Days after Colin Farrell confirmed his involvement, HBO announced Tuesday that Vince Vaughn will join him in the cast of the anthology series.
Vince Vaughn, who made his bones in Swingers, is reportedly the bad guy. A corrupt corporate type, he’s got politicians in his pockets and more than misdemeanors on his mind.
Vaughn’s character is described as “a former thug turned businessman” who is working with corrupt politicians to push through “a high-speed railway system” that would run along the coast of California bringing business in its wake.
