After heading to Bon Temps for a heavily recurring role on the final season of HBO’s True Blood, Riley Smith will be heading back to the premium cable network this winter, with word that the actor has landed a part in the hotly anticipated second season of acclaimed crime anthology series True Detective.
The second season of True Detective, set in Los Angeles, revolves around three police officers (Rachel McAdams, Colin Farrell and Taylor Kitsch) as well as a career criminal (Vince Vaughn) who “must navigate a web of conspiracy in the aftermath of a murder.” Smith is reportedly on board to play Steve Mercier, a “boyish Sheriff’s Deputy” and the boyfriend of McAdams’ haunted protagonist.
The role will be Smith’s highest-profile to date, though some may recognize the actor from his past recurring gigs on The CW’s teen-targeted soap 90210 and Fox’s espionage thriller 24.

Ewan McGregor tells Details the Trainspotting sequel "might happen" and doesn't speak to highly of Star Wars crazies saying: I don't have any experience with them. I've never been to one of the conventions.

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.
