The McConaissance was already in full swing when Matthew McConaughey agreed to star in the first season of True Detective with Woody Harrelson. But HBO and show creator Nic Pizzolatto are gambling that the hard-boiled anthology can serve as a rejuvenation machine for other treading-water actors aching to break out of a rut. HBO officially confirmed today that Colin Farrell and Vince Vaughn will star in season 2—but not as partners, a la Rust and Marty. Farrell is a cop, but Vaughn will play a “career criminal in danger of losing his empire when his move into legitimate enterprise is »

HBO has announced the casting for two of its four leads for the second season of crime drama, True Detective. Was yesterday’s reveal that Colin Farrell was to join the show a little premature – and is that was sparked today’s press release? The Irish star told reporters yesterday that he was involved in the second season of the smash series. Twenty four hours later and HBO have confirmed the actor’s statement – and thrown another name into the ‘definitely’ pile: Vince Vaughn.
The goofball extraordinaire has officially joined the ranks for Nic Pizzolato’s hugely successful crime drama. Initially it was unclear how exactly the second season would expand on the world created in the first. A now-legendary eight-episode run with Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson, the show won over critics and fans. The pair played two detectives, whose hunt to track down a Louisiana serial killer spanned a sprawling seventeen years. »

Following weeks of rumors, months of amusing memes and hashtags and Colin Farrell leaking the news himself anyway, HBO has finally confirmed that Farrell, Vince Vaughn and Director Justin Lin are signed on for the second season of Nic Pizzolato’s True Detective.
Via Deadline, Farrell will play a compromised cop in a corrupt Los Angeles police department torn between his allegiance between the Lapd and a mob boss. Vaughn will play another “career criminal” whose legitimate business partner threatens both his new legal endeavor and his criminal empire.
Deadline also has the log line for the new season: “Three police officers and a career criminal must navigate a web of conspiracy in the aftermath of a murder.”

Rumors suggesting Vince Vaughn and Colin Farrell were being considered for roles or were in negotiations turned out to be spot on as both big-screen actors have officially joined the True Detective Season 2 cast list.

It has long been said that Irish thespian Colin Farrell was in talks to star in the second season of the HBO series, True Detective. In a chat with Sunday World, Farrell has now confirmed this bit his casting, and has opened up a bit about his excitement surrounding the project.
"I’m doing the second series. I’m so excited," he told the Irish paper. While there isn't much the actor knows about the story, he did discuss what he does know, while also confirming the setting.

It means I get to stay at home and see the kids," he said. Farrell also added, "These are early days and all the powers that be »

With its innovative format, tight focus on its central themes and a pair of juicy, powerful roles for stars Woody Harrelson and Matthew McConaughey, HBO’s True Detective captured the cultural zeitgeist during the early part of 2014. The names circling the lead roles for Season 2 of creator Nic Pizzolatto’s anthology crime drama include the likes of Vince Vaughn, and Taylor Kitsch, along with (reportedly) more than half a dozen contenders for the female lead role.
Now, however, perhaps the starriest name said to be in final talks has confirmed his involvement: Colin Farrell told Sunday World that he has signed on for the second season, saying: “I’m doing the second series. I’m so excited.”

“I’m doing the second series. I’m so excited. I know it will be eight episodes and take around four or five months to shoot. 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.”

"I'm doing the second series, Farrell, 38, told Ireland’s Sunday World. I'm so excited."
"I know it will be eight episodes and take around four or five months to shoot,” Farrell added. “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.”
It was announced early on that True Detective season 1 stars Woody Harrelson and Matthew McConaughey would not be reprising their roles in the sophomore season. Since then, a number of big names have been rumored to be circling parts, though it’s unknown who, besides Farrell, is officially attached to star in the HBO show.

Colin Farrell is your new "True Detective." After weeks of speculation, the "Saving Mr. Banks" actor has confirmed he'll be starring in Season 2 of the HBO crime drama, telling the Sunday World: "I’m doing the second series. I’m so excited." He then added: "I know it will be eight episodes and take around four or five months to shoot. 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." The network still hasn't confirmed Farrell's casting. "True Detective" Season 1 starred Woody Harrelson and Matthew McConaughey and was directed by Cary Fukunaga, who won an Emmy for his work on the show. It was additionally nominated for four more Emmys including Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series for Harrelson and McConaughey. Farrell is the first actor to »

The actor himself confirmed he’s on board to Irish newspaper The Sunday World. “I’m doing the second series,” Farrell (Fright Night, In Bruges) reportedly said. “I’m so excited.” And we hear Farrell’s deal with the network is indeed either done, or very close to it.
HBO, however, officially remains mum on what’s become a rather torturous casting process (in the press anyway), as the network and creator Nic Pizzolatto seek to fill several key roles on the show in the wake of the first »

Lionsgate has unveiled a collection of new The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1 images from the first half of director Francis Lawrence’s conclusion to the franchise. As seen in the full-length trailer, the story finds Jennifer Lawrence’s Katniss on the frontlines of an all-out war between the rebels of District 13 and the Capitol. These new images showcase Katniss’ battle-readiness, but the highlight of Mockingay – Part 1 for me continues to be Game of Thrones actress Natalie Dormer’s Cressida. She looks absolutely badass in the role, and after hearing Dormer’s thoughts on women in the movie industry at the “Women Who Kick Ass” panel at this year’s Comic-Con, I’m essentially ready to vote her into office. Hit the jump to take a look at the new The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1 images. The film also stars Liam Hemsworth, Woody Harrelson, Julianne Moore, »

As The Day Today’s Chris Morris might put it, “That’s it! It’s war!” The conflict between the despotic, resource-rich and couture-obsessed Capitol and the defiant Districts is coming to a violent head in the latest trailer for The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1. Check it out below. Here, Katniss Everdeen (Jennifer Lawrence) has been recruited to lead the rebel forces against those of President Snow, working alongside the likes of Gale (Liam Hemsworth), Haymitch (Woody Harrelson), Beetee (Jeffrey Wright), Plutarch Heavensbee (Philip Seymour Hoffman, in what will be one of his final performances) and President Alma Coin (Julianne Moore). Katniss has now been brought to District 13, long thought destroyed and written out of Panem history but, it emerges, a power to be reckoned with. But even as the Districts start to make progress against the Capitol’s armies, Snow delivers a nasty propaganda surprise: Peeta (Josh Hutcherson »
The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1, which has delivered us with wave after wave of posters and tiny tease videos, finally has a trailer, and it’s actually pretty cool, though perhaps not especially informative for those who haven’t read the books, and are instead just making their way through the films.
We’ve already seen some very short clips of Peeta doing publicity shots, and we get more of that, and we get to see Katniss throwing her weight around a bit, but for the most part, you’ve got to know what’s going on if you want to know what the trailer is giving you.
One question that a lot of people have going in, which the trailer doesn’t really hint at, is where exactly the first one ends. I actually thought we might get a little nugget that might help people figure this out, »
