    As we make our way around this flat circle known as time, more and more is coming out about the second season of HBO’s darling True Detective.

     

    First off, those rumors about Colin Farrell becoming
    one of the season’s four leads are all but confirmed, according to the
    up-and-coming but reliable site Film Divider. Farrell, along with other
    rumored lead Taylor Kitsch, will reportedly make up
    two-thirds of the investigative triangle this season focuses on — two
    men and a woman from different cities and law enforcement bodies will
    come together to uncover mass corruption.

     

    In terms of the investigation, here’s an excerpt from Film Divider’s plot description:

    The new mystery is to be kickstarted by the murder of Ray
    Caspar, City Manager of a fictional Californian city. From what I can
    gather, the new, partly invented map that Pizzolatto is drawing will be
    essential to his new story. As he teased, some months ago, part of the
    mystery will involve California’s transportation systems. This plot will
    involve a corrupt scheme to link North and South California with a high
    speed train, all in pursuit of profitable land ownership and lucrative
    federal grants.

    Anyone getting a Chinatown feel from this?

     

    Keeping in line with True Detective‘s overall aesthetic, all
    of the characters are going to be totally messed up. The younger lead
    will reportedly play a California Highway Patrol officer who was
    “suspended for sexually exploiting a young woman he pulled over.” On top
    of that, Farrell’s character will have “cocaine and anger management”
    issues, while the female lead will also have a troubled past. So, par
    for the course.

     

    For those of you doing math at home, so far we’ve only covered three
    of the reported four central characters. That fourth lead will allegedly
    go to this season’s villain — so start making your casting bets
    accordingly.

     

    Now, all of this is still unverified, and creator Nic Pizzolatto doesn’t seem like he’d be beneath pulling the rug out from under us. But it just sounds good enough to be true, right?

    I think if they are casting Farrell and Kitsch, they are going to get a real veteran actor for the villain role. I’m hoping that we get a legend like Jack Nicholson, Robert De Niro, Bruce Dern or Al Pacino.

    -Also, I like Ewan M., but I would MUCH rather see Farrell in this piece, for a career resurgence, that he really needs!

    Why do I have a feeling that female character will be the underwritten one? Ugh…

    You’re right, it totally has a Chinatown vibe. For that matter, I hope the other character is a femme fatale female cop with shady past like Faye Dunaway in Chinatown. lol

    Yeah. Maybe Dustin Hoffman? He has the recent HBO connection with Luck.

    I think Farrell is a terrible choice because this actor is not a high level.

    He may not be on the level of McConaughey and Harrelson, but he is still a pretty high-level actor

    Before the past two years people would have said the same thing about  McConaughey. If you knew his work beyond the wannabe blockbusters you’d know otherwise. He should have gotten an Oscar nod for In Bruges, and he gave solid performances in Tigerland, Intermission, Cassandra’s Dream and Horrible Bosses. I also think he suits this genre than say a McGregor.

    Does anyone here know how long it actually took to produce season 1 of True Detective?  I ask because recently people here are speculating that TD season two will not be ready in time. 

    I would be surprised if it took them more than 4 months at the most to do season one.  Considering they are creating around eight hours of content, I doubt it would take them the normal 9 months most television shows take. 

    No matter what happens, I cannot see HBO waiting until next summer to debut season two.  Considering this is possibly there hottest (at least their most prestigous) property right now, I am sure they would be willing to re-organize their schedule to fit TD in.

    Unless they have further delays in finding the cast for season two, it sounds like they might start production soon. 

    I do not know about anyone else, but I cannot wait to hear who they have signed for season two.  It seems half of Hollywood’s A-listers have been rumored to be casted, so I am eager to see who they actually end up with.
