Finn Wittrock Joins 'Freak Show' Cast
Thrilled to announce the very talented Finn Wittrock has joined the cast of Freak Show!
— Ryan Murphy (@MrRPMurphy) July 24, 2014
Aside from American Horror Story and A Normal Heart, Wittrock is best known for his arc on Showtime's Masters of Sex and appearing in 2014 flicks Winter’s Tale and Darren Aronofsky’s Noah. Later this year, Wittrock will be seen in Angelina Jolie’s directorial debut about Olympian and World War II hero Louis Zamperini, »
The Silence of the Lambs star’s potential first series regular TV gig will have him playing the man in charge of a futuristic theme park where robots go berserk and attack park guests, EW.com reports.
This should take some of the sting out of that Emmy snub.

Breaking Bad, however, did not go home empty-handed; the TCA honored the show’s final eight-episode run with the Program of the Year prize (the second consecutive year it won the top award).
Colin Farrell put his impressive physique on display in a black Speedo while relaxing in Stromboli, Italy, on Friday. The actor lounged by the pool after shooting a new Dolce & Gabbana campaign with Oscar-winning director Paolo Sorrentino. Colin was surrounded by a bevy of beautiful ladies on a yacht earlier in the day, so this is likely a nice working trip for him. Before heading overseas, Colin made headlines when it was revealed that he is being considered as one of four leads for the second season of HBO's True Detective. Along with Colin, it was reported that Taylor Kitsch is also in talks to star in the show. It could be a while before we find out if Colin will be suiting up and solving crimes, so in the meantime, just enjoy him stripping down and showing off his body. »

Akiva Goldsman wrote, directed and produced Winter's Tale for Warner Bros this year and I haven't seen it, but it has been described to me as laughably bad. Something about Colin Farrell pulling off someone's face? I imagine I'll get to it.
On the other side of this story coin is a game called Space Invaders. I'm not sure how ever-present it is in the current generation, but it's that 1980s video game where you're shooting slowly advancing aliens from behind some destructible obstacles. It's kind of like a stationary Galaga.
I bet Taylor Kitsch could star in it. »
Season 2 of HBO's critically-acclaimed True Detective is starting to turn into the TV version of Star Wars: Episode VII, with more rumors and unconfirmed details circulating than actual facts. HBO hasn't even officially issued a Season 2 renewal yet, but that is merely a foregone conclusion at this point, since we have known for months that series creator Nic Pizzolatto has been working on the scripts. Today, we have even more unconfirmed information from Film Divider, which reveals the season will deal with corruption and addiction, centering on the California transportation system.
Nic Pizzolatto wouldn't confirm whether or not Season 2 centers on the secret occult history tied to California's transportation system last week, but this new report reveals the season centers on a corrupt scheme to link Northern and Southern California together through a high-speed train, which ties into land ownership and state grants. The plot has been compared to the film classic Chinatown, »
We’ve been hearing more and more about the upcoming second season of HBO’s tremendous crime anthology series True Detective as the weeks have ticked by, with word that Colin Farrell is set to take on a lead role and that Taylor Kitsch is also in talks. But in terms of what exactly the second season is going to focus on, we had previously been drawing from comments creator Nic Pizzolatto made back in May about the second season involing the “psychosphere ambience” of California, “hard women, bad men and the secret occult history of the United States transportation system.” Now, however, we may have a better idea of what to expect from the new episodes of True Detective.
Film Divider, which is relatively new but gaining a good reputation for scoops, recently reported what it has been hearing about the second season, giving us an exciting glimpse into »

You might have thought you were done discussing these but I'm just getting around to posting about them, so don't shut your trap just yet. Here's five stories that we didn't get to in anything like a timely fashion but so what? Time is a flat circle.
Story 1 Colin In Talks
I was going to wait to post about this until it was official and not just "in talks" but since the internet moves with the speed of everything casually mentioned as fact that everyone is aware of and will be old tomorrow, it should be noted that it looks like Colin Farrell will be the leading man of True Detective Season 2 (possibly Taylor Kitsch beside him). Woody Harrelson and Matthew McConaughey will be tough shoes to fill but as I relayed on twitter, he's a smart idea because people will be surprised when he's great because they haven't noticed that he often is. »

Death? Mourning? Ain’t nobody on Sunday’s True Blood got time for that. Less than 24 hours after losing Alcide, Sookie re-focused her efforts on saving her friends from the H-Vamps — and, of course, getting her flirt on.
To be fair, Sookie and Jason did place some quick, tear-jerking phone calls to Jackson and Hoyt (Hoyt!!!) to inform them of their respective losses. Hoyt’s reaction was particularly heartbreaking, not only because he loved his crazy mama, but because Jason had to pretend like they didn’t know each other. »
The first season of HBO’s True Detective was a big success for the Us cable channel, scoring acclaim for its twisty, complex, thoughtful plotting and dark-skewing performances from Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson, who both won Emmy nominations for their work. Given the show’s anthology style, neither will return for season 2, and The Wrap reports that Colin Farrell is now in talks to step in.HBO isn’t commenting on casting rumours, so Farrell’s involvement won’t be confirmed until there’s an official announcement. But he’s certainly a solid choice for the cop drama. In addition to the Seven Psychopaths star, Taylor Kitsch is also being floated as a likely co-star. He’s had a rough time of it in cinemas, but Kitsch was praised for his turn on HBO’s TV movie The Normal Heart and of course used to do great work on TV's Friday Night Lights. »
With people dying left and right (and occasionally naked) on True Blood‘s final season, it’s becoming harder to predict just how it’ll all end — and Lauren Bowles is relishing every minute of her front-row seat to Bon Temps’ demise.
Speaking with TVLine below, Bowles reflects on Holly’s three-week stint at Fangtasia, then does her best to tease the rest of Season 7, including my personal favorite question: Will someone say “I do” before the series ends? Plus, she discusses the possibility of a True Blood »
HBO is refusing to give any comment on its possible True Detective Season 2 casting, but shortly after it was announced that Colin Farrell was in talks for one of four main leads, it was revealed that Taylor Kitsch is being eyed by the network to also star in the hit HBO drama series.
Colin Farrell will play the older lead male detective if he signs on, with Taylor Kitsch playing his younger partner. HBO programming president Michael Lombardo commented earlier in the week that an official casting announcement is coming soon.
An insider claims that Colin Farrell fills the character type HBO is looking for, a true movie star who is both rugged and gritty. The actor is said to be very close to signing his deal. At this time, it's not known if Taylor Kitsch has officially entered negotiations.
The Wrap says Colin Farrell is in talks to star in the second season of HBO's True Detective, an anthology performance-based mystery series whose first iteration just nabbed it's cast some Emmy nominations.
Series creator and writer Nic Pizzolatto has been pretty tight lipped about what the second season would be about and who would be in it. It's going to involve the transportation industry, the occult, take place in the State of California and has about four "lead" roles.
As of now Nic Pizzolatto is half-done scripting Season 2, which means look for a casting announcement as soon as next week.
These reports were squarely denied by HBO. You know, like they are all the time. »
We just barely reported on HBO programming president Michael Lombardo having said that he expects True Detective season two casting news to arrive something over the forthcoming week – now we have the next best thing to an official announcement. Multiples sites are reporting that Colin Farrell is deep in talks to play the lead character in the second season of Nic Pizzolatto’s high art/neo-Noir hybrid series, while Taylor Kitsch is said to be a front-runner for one of the three remaining “central roles.”
Farrell, according to The Wrap, is near to reaching a deal that will see him portray True Detective season two’s “older male lead” - a role that apparently requires someone who ...

Just a day after True Detective earned 12 Emmy nominations, news has broken that Colin Farrell and Taylor Kitsch are in talks to star in the second season of HBO's smash hit. We have quite a few details about season two, but this is the first time Farrell's and Kitsch's names have been tossed into the ring. I kind of like this unexpected combination, though I thought there might be a female lead this time around. What do you think? Are you into Kitsch and Farrell? Trick question! Of course you are. »

At the Television Critics Association summer press tour on Thursday, HBO president Michael Lombardo said a Season 2 casting announcement was imminent, and added, “[T]he two scripts we have are…more exciting than the first season.”
Series creator Nic Pizzolatto, meanwhile, told The Daily »
Colin Farrell is in talks to take on the lead role in the second season of Nic Pizzolatto‘s HBO series True Detective. There's also word that Taylor Kitsch is also among the leading candidates for the second male lead.
The first season of True Detective was incredible, and if you haven't seen it, you need too. It recently earned several Emmy nominations on Thursday, including lead actor nominations for both Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson, as well as a Best Drama nomination. Those two actors both need to win for their roles!
HBO CEO Richard Plepler and president Michael Lombardo recently said that the first two scripts for season two are “more exciting” than those of the first season. I have no idea what that means but I assume they are just trying to build buzz.
All we really know about the second season at this point came from »

It might be time to retire the True Detective season two Twitter meme. A source close to the situation confirmed to E! News that Colin Farrell and Taylor Kitsch are being considered for starring roles in the hit HBO drama's second season. The first season of True Detective starring Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson received numerous Emmy nominations, including one for each lead actor. The Wrap and Variety first reported on the potential casting discusions. Details on season two remain under wraps, but HBO president Michael Lombardo told reporters at the 2014 Summer TCA Press Tour that he's seen the first two scripts of the new season by Nic Pizzolatto. "The two scripts we have are, I hate »
Yesterday came the confirmed news that the upcoming second season of HBO's "True Detective" would feature four main leads. On top of that, casting announcements regarding those roles could arrive as early as next week.
Today, one of the names has apparently leaked - Colin Farrell. The Wrap claims the Irish actor is in deep negotiations to portray one of the main characters which is set in the lesser known areas of California.

True Detective season 2 may have finally begun casting its major roles as Colin Farrell is in talks to join the hit HBO series. Additionally, Taylor Kitsch might be in the mix as well Earlier today, we posted an interview with HBO's President of Programming Michael Lombardo and Chairman and CEO Richard Plepler, and Lombardo said he assumed "at least some announcements will be happening in the next week." Since Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson got two juicy roles and earned nominations for Best Actor in a Drama Series, the show is presumably a hot ticket in Hollywood for actors and actresses looking for rich material in an acclaimed series that won't permanently take them away from acting in movies. Yesterday, creator and writer Nic Pizzolatto revealed that there will be four central roles, and now Farrell presumably has one of them, and Kitsch is being eyed for a part as well. »
