‘True Detective’ adds a number of cast members for season two

13 hours ago | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Cable channel HBO has had a history of critically and commercially acclaimed shows, from The Sopranos to Game of Thrones. Adding to their ranks this past television season was the channel’s newest offering, True Detective. With Cary Fukunaga and Nic Pizzolatto respectively directing and writing each episode, fans of the show were intrigued to see what shape the show would take in season two, with leads Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson, as well as Fukunaga, following through on their promise to exit the show after its first season. With Justin Lin stepping into the director’s chair for the first two episodes of the new season, the show’s casting began to take shape a while ago, with Colin Farrell, Vince Vaughn, and the recently confirmed Taylor Kitsch all set to play key roles. Now the show has added a number of other performers to its roster.

Headlining the new additions is Rachel McAdams. »

Kelly Reilly, Abigail Spencer And Leven Ramblin Circling True Detective Season 2

19 hours ago | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

The second season of HBO’s True Detective has already locked in its male leads, and now Deadline reports that four new names have entered negotiations. With a Friday table read – wherein the cast read through the script – in place, it makes sense for news to leak of who’ll exactly be involved. Currently finalizing a deal to secure a regular role is Kelly Reilly (Sherlock Holmes, Eden Lake), with Abigail Spencer (This Is Where I Leave You), Leven Ramblin (Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles) and Michael Irby (Almost Human) in the running for supporting parts.

Reilly and Spencer have been previously linked to the Nic Pizzolatto-created show, back when a preliminary list of actresses made its way online. Still ironing out the creases in her contract, Reilly is slated to play “the self-possessed Morgan.” While the character descriptions are still unconfirmed at this stage, it’s still exciting »
