Earlier this week HBO finally confirmed that both Colin Farrell and Vince Vaughn had signed on for the second season of True Detective. And if sources are correct, both men will be joined by Rachel McAdams and Taylor Kitsch, who will round out the series’ four lead roles. The casting news is sure to draw excitement and ire among fans as debate unfolds about whether or not each actor is the right choice.
While it remains to be seen just how each actor does in the series, we rounded up their best roles that serve as a primer to the crime drama.
Most mans of Vince Vaughn know him for his hilarious comedies, such as Wedding Crashers and Dodgeball: A True Underdog Story, but there was a time when the actor explored a more serious side of things. In 2000′s The Cell, Vaughn goes inside the mind of a serial »

HBO has offered Rachel McAdams the lead female role in their drama thriller True Detective, and I think it'd be smart of her to take it. If she does, she will join Colin Farrell and Vince Vaughn, who she starred alongside in the comedy Wedding Crashers. There's one other lead role that needs to be filled as well, and that is expected to go to Taylor Kitsch.
Justin Lin (Fast and Furious franchise) is set to direct the first two episodes of Season 2, which is set in California and revolves around three police officers and a career criminal who navigate a web of conspiracy in the aftermath of a murder. McAdams would play one of the three cops.
Creator Nic Pizzolatto has been hard at work writing the series, which is sure to be a huge hit. The first season was amazing, and I can only imagine that the second »

True Detective season two casting announcements are like buses – they take blummin’ ages to arrive, and people seem to have polarised opinions about them (so far).
On an unrelated note, today we had our second cast confirmation in as many days after a long wait - It’s been announced that Mean Girls, Sherlock Holmes and About Time actress Rachel McAdams will be playing the female lead.

The male cast is largely in place. The question now for True Detective fans – who will play the female lead? While Rachel McAdams has been high on the production team’s wishlist for a while, her involvement is getting close to reality with the news she is in talks to join the second season. The diverse range of actresses mooted for the part have included Rosario Dawson and Jessica Biel but reportedly McAdams is the name that will shortly be announced to join Colin Farrell and Vince Vaughn. Taylor Kitsch is also said to be about to sign on the dotted line.
Recently following her turn in Richard Curtis’s About Time with John Le Carre’s A Most Wanted Man, McAdams is one of those high profile talents who is keen to take on different types of roles. That shouldn’t be a problem here as she’s wanted to play Ani Bezzerides, »

McAdams would join the currently confirmed Colin Farrell and Vince Vaughn in the series, with the fourth lead role expected to go to Taylor Kitsch. McAdams appears to have beaten out the likes of Jessica Biel and Malin Akerman for the role.
The main issue has been one of scheduling with McAdams about to start the Catholic Church sex scandal "Spotlight". In the past day or so, a deal has apparently been worked out so the actress could do both projects.

See? We told you guys to just wait — and, yes, we had to take that advice to heart, too — because, no matter what the addition of Colin Farrell and Vince Vaughn to the True Detective second season roster meant, it didn’t mean that casting was over. Now, well, casting still isn’t over, but it’s getting there, and it’s certainly moving in a very nice direction. Variety reports that, as has been rumored off and on for awhile now, Rachel McAdams has been offered one of four lead roles in the HBO series’ second season. The part will reportedly see McAdams playing “a Monterey sheriff with a troubled past that has led her to a gambling and alcohol addiction.” The part is one of three law enforcement types on the new season — Farrell is on board as one, Taylor Kitsch is still expected to play the other, and »

Earlier in the week it was confirmed that both Colin Farrell (Total Recall) and Vince Vaughn (Delivery Man) have signed on to the second season of True Detective, and now Variety is reporting that HBO has offered Rachel McAdams (About Time) and Taylor Kitsch (John Carter) the two remaining lead roles.
Should deals be reached, McAdams and Kitsch would appear as detectives alongside Colin Farrell’s Ray Velcoro, “a compromised detective whose allegiances are torn between his masters in a corrupt police department and the mobster who owns him.” Vaughn is set to play the villain, a career criminal called Frank Semyon.

The amount of coverage on the upcoming second season of HBO’s anthology series True Detective has been, well, intense. Just about every actor on the planet was reported as being on a shortlist, in talks, circling, or eyed for a role in the new season, and while the cast is nearly set with Colin Farrell and Vince Vaughn confirmed, Rachel McAdams holding an offer for the female lead, and Taylor Kitsch expected to take a supporting role, speculation continues for a few more unspecified parts. While we await further development on that front, the excellent duo of Ellen Page and Kate Mara have thrown their hats into the ring for a spinoff of sorts, Tiny Detectives. The title of the new Funny or Die short is pretty self-explanatory, and yes it’s a very simple joke, but that doesn’t make it any less funny. See for yourself by »

The world needs bad men. It also needs bad women, which is why HBO’s acclaimed crime drama True Detective has made a point of casting a female lead for its next go-round. Granted, Sheriff Ani Bezzerides might end up serving as the moral center of season two’s protagonist trio, while its male component – comprised of Colin Farrell and (probably) Taylor Kitsch - could supply the show with its trademark ethical ambiguity; the tough, local area sheriff may yet be one of the good guys after all.
But whether Bezzerides is pure of heart or willing to bend the rules to get the job done, it’s looking more and more likely that she’ll be played by Rachel McAdams. In the building race to secure the role, ...

We can finally complete our #TrueDetectiveSeasonTwo Photoshops: Two days after Colin Farrell and Vince Vaughn officially signed on, Variety is reporting that Rachel McAdams and Taylor Kitsch are also close to joining the second season of True Detective. Both castings have been rumored for a while. McAdams will be playing Ani Bezzerides, "a tough, no-nonsense Monterey sheriff whose troubled upbringing has driven her to gambling and alcohol," while Kitsch will be playing Paul Woodrough, a young soldier turned detective "who has seen his share of violence and destruction." Yup, sounds like True Detective. »

HBO hasn't made an official announcement yet, but its being reported this morning that Rachel McAdams has been offered the female lead role in Season 2 of True Detective. The actress is close to signing on, and we should have a definite answer sometime very soon.
Just yesterday, it was said that Keira Knightley had entered the race for the coveted role, auditioning alongside a number of actress both well known and somewhat obscure. Elisabeth Moss was the most popular choice, with Rosario Dawson also said to be a strong contender. Other auditioning actresses included Jessica Biel, Malin Akerman, and Jamie Alexander, Oona Chaplin, Brit Marling, and Kelly Reilly.
If Rachel McAdams officially signs on, she will join Colin Farrell and Vince Vaughn who were both officially confirmed by HBO earlier in the week. Taylor Kitsch is expected to take the fourth lead role.

Man did people pretend to be really angry when Colin Farrell and Vince Vaughn were officially cast as the leads in True Detective Season 2. This is such a strange case of armchair casting where people are decrying who is or isn't right for a role that they know nothing about. Have they read the scripts for the season? No. Also, after Failure to Launch would anyone have branded Matthew McConaughey as a likely candidate to pull off a role like he did on the show last year? Nope. So onto the actresses. There are reports hitting that Rachel McAdams has been offered one of the female leads by HBO. There is also a list of eight actresses that are ostensibly up for another part. Again we know nothing about the characters these people will be playing so there would be no degree of accuracy involved in me saying who I »

It isn't official yet, but it looks as though we are getting very close to the announcement of the casting of another role, or two, for "True Detective." A new report over at Variety says that Rachel McAdams has been offered the lead female role and that Taylor Kitsch may find himself cast soon as well. Earlier this week, Colin Farrell and Vince Vaughn were confirmed for parts, the former as a police officer and the latter as a criminal. Farrell plays Ray Velcoro, "a compromised detective whose allegiances are torn between his masters in a corrupt police department and the mobster who owns him." Vaughn is Frank Semyon, "a career criminal in danger of losing his empire when his move into legitimate enterprise is upended by the murder of a business partner." The two rumored additions, Kitsch and McAdams, are expected to play police officers alongside Farrell. HBO has »

In an interview with Ireland's Sunday World newspaper this weekend, Colin Farrell confirmed his role in the forthcoming season of HBO's hit drama. And on Tuesday, HBO officially confirmed the casting of Farrell and Vince Vaughn in lead roles. Farrell is detective Ray Velcoro, who dances between his corrupt police bosses and mobster Frank Semyon (Vaughn), who has his claws in Velcoro as he fights to stay in control of his empire. Over season two's eight episodes, Velcoro is one of three cops investigating the murder of Semyon's legit business partner. Justin Lin ("Fast & Furious") will direct the first two episodes later this fall in California. HBO will debut the new season in January. Variety reported Thursday that Rachel McAdams is "closing in" on the female lead, though HBO has yet to confirm the news. A fourth lead role is expected to go to Taylor Kitsch, but that has not »

The shape of True Detective’s second season is beginning to come into focus. Controversial choices, Colin Farrell and Vince Vaughn are officially on board to star in the show’s new episodes and from the sounds of it, Rachel McAdams is close to joining them.According to Variety, McAdams, who has been rumoured for a role almost as long as Farrell, Vaughn and the still-unconfirmed-but-likely-close Taylor Kitsch, has been offered the third lead in the show, but HBO has yet to make an official announcement. That should be coming shortly assuming the deal is made.With Nic Pizzolatto once again writing and overseeing the series and Justin Lin hired to direct the first two episodes, the new season is set in California locales and sees Farrell as Velcoro, a compromised detective whose allegiances are torn between his masters in a corrupt police department and the mobster who owns him. »
We reported this morning that Keira Knightley had been thrown into the ring for the female lead in HBO’s True Detective season two. Now, Variety‘s sources say that Rachel McAdams has been offered the much-coveted role.
McAdams has been in the running for the part for some time now. Since the earliest rumours fired up concerning the major female part, she was touted to be the network’s prime candidate. While it’s stated that she has been offered – but not yet accepted – the role, this surely knocks out the slew of other actresses keen to nab the part.
Today’s news now indicates that despite an apparent scheduling conflict standing in the way of her commitment to Detective, McAdams is likely re-arrange her slate. After all, this is one of the hottest shows on the box right now. If she opts to take it, she’ll shoot Detective this fall, »
