With Colin Farrell, Vince Vaughn and Taylor Kitsch reportedly set for three of the leading roles in season two of HBO’s True Detective, the hunt for the show’s female leads continues. Elisabeth Moss and Rachel McAdams were recently named as favourites, but a new report lists Seven actresses in contention.

Brit Marling (Another Earth), Oona Chaplin (Game of Thrones), Kelly Reilly (Flight), Jessica Biel (The A-Team), Malin Akerman (Watchmen), Jamie Alexander (Thor: The Dark World) and Rosario Dawson (Sin City).

Rosario Dawson, Jessica Biel And Brit Marling To Audition For True Detective Season 2

16 September 2014 1:42 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

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, »

Rosario Dawson, Brit Marling, Jessica Biel, Kelly Reilly & More Rumored For 'True Detective' Season 2

16 September 2014 6:18 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

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. According to The Wrap, the recently rumored Elisabeth Moss and Rachel McAdams have likely had the conversations but nothing is locked in (though they could still be in play), so the door has been opened to a host of other actresses to vie for the role.

11 September 2014 5:45 PM, PDT | EW - Inside TV | See recent EW.com - Inside TV news »

Somehow, Ryan Murphy’s ultra-sexy drama series is not getting made at HBO — despite starring Anna Torv, Jennifer Jason Leigh, Jaimie Alexander, Michelle Monaghan, Scott Speedman and Wes Bentley.

HBO has shut the door on Open, the Glee and American Horror Story co-creator’s risque take on modern romance that was described as “a multicharacter exploration of the complex, ever evolving landscape of sexuality, monogamy and intimacy in relationships.”

The premium network’s programming president Michael Lombardo said in a statement: “After such a triumphant collaboration with The Normal Heart, everyone felt that Open was not the right next step for all involved. »

11:55 a.m. ICM Partners’ annual brunch has become a welcome respite from the swirl of nighttime events on Emmy weekend. Waiters with cups of Sangria spiked with apple slices and grapes greeted guests on the steps of Chris Silbermann’s Santa Monica home. The brunch  was fantastic — fresh crepes made on the spot, blintzes, all manner of egg dishes and fruit. There’s a reason we skipped breakfast.

New Cast Members Join Jack Black & Tim Robbins In ‘The Brink’

6 August 2014 7:17 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

HBO have got a new comedy show in the works and it has just added a few more cast members to the mix; Jaimie Alexander and Bernard White will join Jack Black and Tim Robbins in the shows’ main roles. The Brink, a half-hour comedy series tipped to be released by the end of the year, will be a humorous slant on the scramble to prevent geopolitical crisis as World War III looms ever closer.

Doesn’t sound that funny to us either but there’s several reasons we’re remaining optimistic. Firstly, the script is being written by seasoned writer/producer Roberto Benabib and his brother Kim, the former with credits including Ally McBeal and Weeds. Secondly, on board directing is Jay Roach who makes his first foray into directing a TV series after movies such as Austin Powers: The Spy Who Shagged Me, Meet The Parents and The Campaign. »
