HBO has just confirmed in a press release that Colin Farrell and Vince Vaughn will star in Season 2 of True Detective. It looks like some of the rumors we reported on last month turned out to be true. I wonder if Taylor Kitsch and Elisabeth Moss will be announced soon?
Per the press release, Colin Farrell will star as Ray Velcoro, a compromised detective whose allegiances are torn between his masters in a corrupt police department and the mobster who owns him.
Vince Vaughn will play Frank Semyon, a career criminal in danger of losing his empire when his move into legitimate enterprise is upended by the murder of a business partner.
The press release also says that more casting announcements will come once they are confirmed.
As we've reported before, Season 2 of True Detective will no longer take place in Louisiana, but will instead be jetting west to California.
So what do you think? Do you think Farrell and Vaughn can live up to Woody Harrelson and Matthew McConaughey?
