    For Season Two of HBO anthology series “True Detective,” do you want to see another male pairing, i.e. Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson, or do you hope the producers branch out to showcase female partners or even a male-female duo?

    Whatever the case, give us your dream cast and brief character descriptions for Season Two below. (Some of your suggestions may be included in a future article at Gold Derby!)

    My dream cast:

    Ian McShane and Jennifer Garner. He’s the grizzled detective ready for retirement; she’s his estranged daughter who gets transferred to his precinct against both of their wishes because of her prior knowledge on the case.

    Great topic Marcus!!!

    I would love to see a female pairing as well.  

    I like the idea a contrasting pair…how about Viola Davis as a seasoned detective paired with an agent from INTERPOL to solve a case with international implications.  The INTERPOL agent would be played by the sublime Olivia Coleman, who would have been my choice for an Emmy if Broadchurch had been eligible in the US.

    On Twitter I saw someone suggest Kyle MacLachlan and Sherilyn Fenn, which would be amazing because it would basically be our only chance at a pseudo-Twin Peaks continuation. And assuming they keep the same creepy atmosphere, it would fit even more!

    They would play older detectives whose judgment is increasingly questioned by their precinct, which seems to get younger and younger every year, as Fenn’s character notes. MacLachlan and Fenn’s characters have been partners for decades, but only solving relatively minor crimes, until one day they get a crack at a big case involving multiple gay teens committing suicide in the same general area. MacLachlan’s character doesn’t think they’re open-and-shut cases, and convinces Fenn’s character that there must be something more to it. They are forced to deal with office politics and a corrupt bureaucracy. Meanwhile, MacLachlan’s character is harboring a secret love for Fenn’s character, but she doesn’t have the same feelings for him.

    To summarize, the logline would be “KYLE MacLACHLAN and SHERILYN FENN reunite as a pair of older detectives from a sleepy suburban town who believe a series of gay suicides in the area may be something more sinister in TRUE DETECTIVE Season 2.”

    Okay I’m done!

    Time for two women next season. Regina King’s my first choice. Pair her up with a veteran actress to counter. Frances McDormand? Sigourney Weaver?

    Honestly, I’d love to see Lupita Nyong’o paired with someone – maybe someone like the aforementioned McDormand or Weaver

    Jodie Foster and Sandra Bullock, with Jodie in a Rust-like role and Sandra as the Marty character, married with kids and always hitting on hot guys (with much male nudity).

    There’s no reason to continue if they’re just gonna repeat the same characters and dynamics. Season two should almost feel like a different series.

    That True Detective Season 2 tag on twitter a few weeks back was not only hilarious, but had some excellent ideas.

    Let’s get two women partners. I don’t care who. Just make it feel like a different show. No need for another Rust.
