One of the few complaints about "True Detective" Season 1 was its lack of well-developed female characters. Case in point was Rust Cohle's girlfriend Laurie (Elizabeth Reaser), who only appeared in one episode ("The Secret Fate of All Life," episode 5) before it was revealed that she and Cohle broke up.
Turns out much more of Laurie was filmed for the HBO drama, but it had to be cut for time. In a deleted scene released by Variety, viewers learn the true reason the couple broke up: Cohle didn't want to have more children, underlining his pessimistic outlook on the world at this point in the show.
It's clear that this is a deal-breaker for Laurie, and considering where "True Detective" goes after their split, it's probably a good thing they weren't together. But who knows, maybe glass-half-full Cohle has a chance for happiness and a family again in his future. »
For better or worse, the “True Detective” Season 1 finale didn't wrap every aspect of the show up in a nice bow, and one of the mysteries was what went wrong between Matthew McConaughey's character and his girlfriend. A deleted scene (above) from the critically-acclaimed HBO drama gives some sort of closure. See photos: 10 ‘True Detective’ Acting Teams We Want to See Next (Photos) As any fan of the series would expect, it was Rust Cohle's bleak philosophy about life that pushed nice nurse Laurie Spencer (Elizabeth Reaser) away. But the clip that never made it to air gives the particular cause:. »

A deleted scene from True Detective reveals the philosophies that kept Matthew McConaughey's character, Rust Cohle, from becoming a father. He talks about his worries in it with Laurie Spencer, the character played by Twilight series and Grey's Anatomy actress Elizabeth Reaser in the first season's fifth episode, in a clip premiered by Extra. As a whole, the idea of bringing children into the world is a touchy subject for the reclusive detective.
5 Things We Learned From 'True Detective'

True Detective fans certainly have no delusions that damaged philosopher Rust Cohle (Matthew McConaughey) was an easy man to live with; his repartee with partner Marty Hart (Woody Harrelson) was proof of that. But the only true glimpses viewers had of Rust’s brief attempt at a functioning relationship — with Hart family friend Lori (Elizabeth Reaser) — were in fragmented scenes that played like fading memories. (Spoilers ahead.)
Marty’s wife Maggie (Michelle Monaghan) introduced Rust to Lori after the detectives “solved” the grisly murder of Dora Lange. Beyond that, pretty much all we knew was that the relationship ended badly. »

Love it or hate it, the season finale of True Detective's inaugural run was one of the most talked about hours of television so far this year. Hopefully you've been keeping up with Allison's recaps, but even if you've been obsessed with Nic Pizzolatto's series this year, there's a good chance you missed a few things. Like, remember when Matthew McConaughey's moody character, Rust Cohle, temporarily found love again with Elizabeth Reaser's Laurie Spencer? Did you ever wonder what happened to split the two of them up (or why Reaser had one total line all season)? Well, now you can find out in this newly released deleted scene from the HBO series. Hit the jump to check it out. Take a look at the deleted scene from True Detective below (via Variety): video platformvideo managementvideo solutionsvideo player »

It all began with a slow set-up focused on two very different detectives teaming up to solve a murder. It built through a crescendo of elevating darkness, with despair and deceit at the centre of each episode. It blew us away with an astonishing six-minute tracking shot at the end of episode four that shifted the drama into something urgent and alive. Now, it beckons our attention with every scene, lest we miss a subtle nuance or line of dialogue to reveal more about the broken hearts and battered psyches of Detectives Martin Hart and Rust Cohle. Few series have busted out of the gate with such brooding brilliance, only to sweep that from underneath us – and in the process, become even bolder by the minute. “The Secret Fate of All Life” is a disarming hour of television that flips everything we thought we might have known about True Detective in the most satisfying way. »

After airing on the A&E Network last month, fans can now own the hit two-night mini-series Bonnie and Clyde on Blu-ray and DVD starting today, January 28. Emile Hirsch and Holliday Grainger star as the legendary bank robbers, who turned from common criminals to national sensations with the help of the media. We have an exclusive featurette with stars Holly Hunter (Emma Parker) and Elizabeth Reaser (P.J. Lane), who explain how desperately Americans needed entertainment during that time period, so they turned to stories about Bonnie and Clyde instead of more depressing tales. Take a look at this behind-the-scenes featurette you can't find anywhere else, which includes historic headlines that show just how famous this duo really was.
Though Bonnie Parker (Holliday Grainger, Jane Eyre) & Clyde Barrow's (Emile Hirsch, Into the Wild) crime spree is legendary, their story has never been told quite like this. Fueled by their passion for »
Anticipation was already pretty high for HBO’s upcoming anthology series True Detective starring Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson, but the recent reviews heaping effusive praise on the show’s first few episodes have made the wait for next Sunday even more excruciating. In an effort to ease some of the pain, HBO has released another new trailer for the eight-episode drama, which revolves around the lives of two detectives during a seventeen-year hunt for a serial killer in Louisiana. Director Cary Fukunaga—who helmed every episode himself—looks to have put together a gorgeously haunting design for the show, and I can’t wait to tune in for the first installment next weekend. Hit the jump to watch the new trailer. Also starring Michelle Monaghan, Alexandra Daddario, Kevin Dunn, Elizabeth Reaser, Michael Potts, and Tory Kittles, True Detective premieres on HBO Sunday, January 12th at 9/8c. »
