The Wrap has word of seven actresses who are trying out for a major role on True Detective this week. According to an exclusive report from writer Jeff Sneider, those auditioning for the HBO drama include: Rosario Dawson, Jessica Biel, Brit Marling and Malin Akerman. Rounding out this list of potential tryouts include the lesser-known Jaimie Alexander (Thor: The Dark World), Oona Chaplin (Game of Thrones) and Kelly Reilly (Flight).
According to Sneider, these actors will be reading for Nic Pizzolatto, the creator and screenwriter of True Detective. Sneider says that Dawson is a favourite, aided by a stellar recent track record working on Danny Boyle’s Trance, Chris Rock’s Tiff favorite Top Five and Netflix’s Daredevil series. Meanwhile, being a Puerto Rican actor in a show that takes place in California (and where all of the other rumored stars are white) could be an advantage over the other choices, »

With Colin Farrell, Vince Vaughn and Taylor Kitsch seemingly good to go for "True Detective" season two, the one major part left to cast is the female lead. And as has been the case with nearly every movement surrounding the show, rumors are flying, and today comes a brace of new names that are apparently in the mix. But first, an update on two previously mentioned contenders.

The Vice of Virtue: Brougher’s Latest Achieves Varied Results
Those familiar with Hilary Brougher’s offbeat sensibilities, as showcased in her delightful 1997 debut The Sticky Fingers of Time, and the Tilda Swinton headlined drama Stephanie Daley (2006), will be happy to know that her long awaited third film has arrived, an adaptation of Jane Mendelsohn’s 2000 Young Adult novel, Innocence. A project first announced several years ago with a revolving list of high profile names announced as being attached (Julianne Moore, Chloe Sevigny, and Abigail Breslin, for instance), it seems Brougher’s had a bit of difficulty getting this project put together, which is evident in the final product, a film reminiscent of vintage stabs at Ya thrillers back in the 70s and 80s, such as several classic Disney titles. While it never quite succeeds as an effective thriller, Brougher manages to strike a moody ambience with this familiar material, »

Written and directed by John Michael McDonagh
Director John Michael McDonagh wastes no time in establishing the stakes of Calvary. In a darkened confessional, Father James Lavelle (Brendan Gleeson) is told that he is going to die in a week. The man planning to kill the priest explains it is exactly because Father Lavelle has done nothing wrong that he is going to die. Of the two McDonagh brothers, John Michael is known for his irreverent comedy The Guard, but with this latest release he joins the ranks of the most fatalistic of Irish artists.
With the seven days allotted to the father, he seeks to sort out his affairs while attending to his parish. The locals in question are made up of Chris O’Dowd, Aidan Gillen, Dylan Moran, M. Emmet Walsh and Isaach De Bankolé all existing at varying levels of disillusionment with the church »

The cinematic treatment of the Catholic church, particularly the priesthood, has, more or less, reflected the changing attitudes of the general public along with many revelations that have dominated the news headlines in recent years. In the 1930′s and 40′s priests were a gentle, pleasant, understanding band of brothers frequently portrayed by actors like Pat O’Brien (who was quoted as saying he would take any film or TV role as a man of the cloth) and Bing Crosby (who won a Best Actor Oscar for Going My Way, and then starred in its sequel The Bells Of St. Mary’S). With the turbulent 60′s we were treated to films more critical of church politics like The Shoes Of The Fisherman. And in the next decade priest became heroes again in the wake of the box office smash The Exorcist and its many supernatural follow-ups and rip-offs. But soon movies »

From writer/director John Michael McDonagh, Calvary tells the story of Father James (Brendan Gleeson), a good priest who is faced with troubling circumstances brought about by a mysterious member of his parish. While helping members of his church with their problems, he also tries to comfort his own fragile daughter (Kelly Reilly) and face the sinister force that’s quickly closing in on him. During this exclusive phone interview with Collider, Irish actor Brendan Gleeson talked about the trust he has in his collaboration with filmmaker John Michael McDonagh, teaming up with him a third time for The Lame Shall Enter First, in which he’ll play a paraplegic, how liberating it was to play a decent guy, and why Father James is more inspirational than an anti-hero. He also talked about his experience working with Ron Howard on Heart of the Sea, and why he wanted to get involved with Suffragette. »
