The Cast What we already knew: Colin Farrell and Vince Vaughn will star, with Farrell as "compromised detective" Ray Velcoro and Vaughn as Frank Semyon, "a career criminal in danger of losing his empire." What we know now: Rounding out our quartet of leads are two more Hollywood reclamation projects, Rachel McAdams and Taylor Kitsch.

Vince Vaughn Talks 'True Detective' Season 2; More Photos

Following the first photos that emerged earlier this week, new images from the True Detective Season 2 set in Los Angeles offer another look at Taylor Kitsch as he engages a gunfight alongside Colin Farrell. We also have more images of Rachel McAdams. Though, the one star we haven't seen yet is Vince Vaughn. Thankfully, the actor recently spoke with Playboy, where he offered some insight into this season. The actor reveals that he was initially cast as career criminal Frank Semyon when he approached True Detective series creator Nic Pizzolatto about writing The Rockford Files movie that the actor was developing.

"I was developing a movie version of The Rockford Files and met with Nic about writing it. He was really enthusiastic but was already working on a crime drama set in Los Angeles, and he gracefully said it was best for him to focus on True Detective. Then he »

Vince Vaughn Opens Up About 'True Detective' Season Two

13 February 2015 9:35 AM, PST | | See recent Rolling Stone news »

As dynamic, spiritually opposite detective partners on the acclaimed first season of True Detective, Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson set a formidable acting standard for the HBO mystery-drama. But Season Two star Vince Vaughn isn't worried about living up to the hype, thanks to the engrossing scripts of creator Nic Pizzolatto. "[He] is such a great writer, and so much of this is driven by his stories," Vaughn said in a recent interview with Playboy. "I thought Woody and Matthew did an exceptional job with the first season.

Vince Vaughn talks True Detective Season 2, says it’s “very different”

13 February 2015 6:08 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

With set-photos appearing online on a regular basis over the last few weeks, anticipation is building for the return of True Detective for its second season, which features a brand-new cast and new directors taking over from Matthew McConaughey, Woody Harrelson and company.

The cast for season two surprised many, but on many levels on adds to the anticipation and desire to see where creator Nic Pizzolatto takes the series next. Colin Farrell (Phone Booth), Rachel McAdams (A Most Wanted Man), Taylor Kitsch (Savages) and Kelly Reilly (Flight) are the major players for the new go-around, but the most left-field casting choice was that of Vince Vaughn as a California crime-lord in danger of losing his empire. Many were perplexed, others were intrigued, but what is true is that the material on offer here is so strong that the role could change Vaughn’s career from here on out.

12 February 2015 8:59 AM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Now that “True Detective” has set its cast for season two (Vince Vaughn, Colin Farrell, Rachel McAdams, Taylor Kitsch and Kelly Reilly), the stars are finally starting to open up about the show’s hotly anticipated return.

In an interview with Playboy, Vaughn admits that he’s not feeling particularly pressured by the prospect of following Woody Harrelson’s and Matthew McConaughey’s acclaimed performances. “[Creator] Nic Pizzolatto is such a great writer, and so much of this is driven by his stories,” Vaughn says. “I thought Woody and Matthew did an exceptional job with the first season. This one’s very different, though. It’s a totally different story, with its own characters. The thing that’s consistent is the richness of the characters and the quality of the material.”

The season’s new setting has a lot to do with the difference in tone, according to Vaughn. “That was Louisiana. »

Rachel McAdams And Colin Farrell Feature In First On-Set Photos From True Detective Season 2

10 February 2015 9:44 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

When it arrived unassumingly on the small screen this time last year, HBO’s True Detective proved to be an instant hit due to its mix of compelling characters and a masterful sense of suspense. It rose above its other contemporaries as a police drama with real clout behind it, but with season two slated to go the anthology route and reset the entire set-up, fans are curious about how the series will continue.

Whatever the outcome in front of the camera, today we’ve been given a behind-the-scenes look at the filming of True Detective season two, which sees Colin Farrell, Rachel McAdams, Vince Vaughn and Taylor Kitsch assume the leading roles in lieu of Woody Harrelson and Matthew McConaughey.

Plot details are, as you’d imagine, scarce on the ground at this early stage, but that hasn’t stopped HBO from releasing character descriptions for each of the aforementioned stars. »

He’s currently across the pond filming “Now You See Me: The Second Act.”

Ruffalo — who beat out Billy Bob Thornton, Benedict Cumberbatch, Adrien Brody and Richard Jenkins in the category — wrote that his wife and children woke him up with the news four hours before he had to be back on set.

Mark Ruffalo Asleep When He Won 2015 SAG Award, Gives Speech on Twitter

25 January 2015 1:25 PM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Mark Ruffalo was nominated for two Screen Actors Guild Awards, but not only did he skip the Sunday, January 25 show, he apparently slept through it. About halfway through the show, Mark won the SAG Award for "Performance By a Male Actor in a Television Movie or Miniseries" for his role in "The Normal Heart." They had to do the classic "Mark Ruffalo couldn't be here ... we accept the award on his behalf."

However, Mark did accept the award shortly after he won - via Twitter. Here's his six-part (so far) speech:

15 Actors Who Could Be The Breakout Stars Of 2015

21 January 2015 1:33 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »


In 2014 an actor previously best known for being seven down the cast list in a cult TV sitcom rose to become the star of two of the year’s biggest blockbusters. This time last year Chris Pratt was about as far from a household name as Guardians Of The Galaxy or The Lego Movie were from being sure things at the box office. One year later and the two films have made over a billion dollars between them and Pratt looks like a leading man with genuine star quality. His lead role in this year’s Jurassic World looks set to cement his newfound status as a bona fide Hollywood star.

It sounds like a simple process, but in reality a lot of actors have been poised on the brink of stardom with multiple big movies due for release only to find the movies flop and their careers worse off than before. »
