Colin Farrell and Vince Vaughn Confirmed for TRUE DETECTIVE Season 2
HBO has officially confirmed that Colin Farrell and Vince Vaughn will star in True Detective Season 2, and that Justin Lin will direct the first two episodes. It was previously rumored that these two actors could be involved, and I think it's great that it has all been made official. These two are great actors and perfect for a crime drama series like this.
The second season will follow three police officers and a career criminal, who must navigate a web of conspiracy in the aftermath of a murder.
Farrell is set to play a character named Ray Velcoro, "a compromised detective whose allegiances are torn between his masters in a corrupt police department and the mobster who owns him"
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." I know Vaughn is mostly known for his comedic work, but I think he'll surprise a lot of people with his performance in this. That's what a show like this can do for actors.
Stay tuned for additional casting. The hour-long drama was created by Nic Pizzolatto, and is set to begin production later this fall in California.
