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.
While they could still be in the running, it seems as if creator and writer Nic Pizzolatto is casting a wide net to find the right person for the still pretty mysterious role. Here’s the full list of True Detective candidates:
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).

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, »

The Wrap reports that Jessica Biel, Malin Akerman ("Watchmen"), and Jamie Alexander ("Thor") have also emerged as strong contenders for the part. Elisabeth Moss and Rachel McAdams, who were previously rumored, are still said to be in the running.
Creator Nic Pizzolatto and HBO are reportedly set to hold another round of auditions to find the right actress out of this lot as the network needs to make a decision shortly.
Whoever wins is expected to star opposite Colin Farrell and Taylor Kitsch as the other two lead detectives in a story about a trio of law enforcement officials investigating a murder that appears to be tied to »

If you haven't seen the first season of HBO's masterful True Detective, you really need to get on that now. Unless of course you enjoy crap television; in which case please continue viewing those awful reality shows.
At any rate, the second season of True Detective is still trying to narrow in on a cast. Its looking very likely that Colin Farrell, Vince Vaughn and Taylor Kitsch will appear in some capacity, there has been a lot of talk of who the female lead will be.
Early reports named Jessica Chastain, Elisabeth Moss and Rachel McAdams, but now The Wrap has a list of seven actresses that Exec Producer Nic Pizzolatto is looking at, and those ladies are not on it; however, The Wrap does note that does not mean they're out of contention for the role.

While Elisabeth Moss and Rachel McAdams are said to still be in the running for the female lead in Season 2 of True Detective, creator Nic Pizzolatto and HBO are having a difficult time finding just the right actress to take on the part, and are holding another round of auditions, which includes 7 other actresses, a few more well known than the others.
The network needs to make a decision soon as True Detective gears up for production and a 2015 return date. The Wrap has learned who has been invited back to read for the coveted role this week, though HBO has no comment on the casting as of yet.
True Detective Season 2 will take place in »
True Detective Season 2 already has a great male cast in place, with Colin Farrell, Taylor Kitsch, and Vince Vaughn all signed on for major roles. But it’s had a tougher time trying to pin down the female lead. Elisabeth Moss and Rachel McAdams have both been named as possibilities in recent weeks, but neither’s […]

Elisabeth Moss and Rachel McAdam were recently reported to be the front-runners for the remaining (female) lead in True Detective season two, but it turns out the situation may be more complicated than that. Seven other names are reportedly in the mix for the remaining True Detective season two lead, and have been invited back to audition for the role for series creator/writer Nic Pizzolatto later this week.
HBO’s philosophical neo-Noir drama is an anthology series, which is why season two is going to have both a different setting and different characters than season one. Colin Farrell, Taylor Kitsch, and Vince Vaughn have all but officially locked down lead roles in season two, while Moss (Peggy Olson from Mad Men) and McAdams (Irene Adler from Click to continue reading ‘True Detective’ Season 2 Female Lead Shortlist Revealed

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. So, who are they? According to the the trade, Brit Marling, Oona Chaplin, Kelly Reilly, Jessica Biel, Malin Akerman, Jaimie Alexander and Rosario Dawson are all being looked at. They believe the latter is the most likely candidate, »

"True Detective" has a woman problem.
Creator Nic Pizzolatto is still searching for "the one" - an actress for the lead role in season 2 of the acclaimed HBO drama. The Wrap reports that he's auditioning seven actresses this week.
It's quite a diverse list of women who boast a range of acting styles and looks, all looking to play Ani Bezzerides, a "tough, no-nonsense Monterey sheriff whose troubled upbringing has driven her to gambling and alcohol."
Pizzolatto has to hurry »

Contrary to reports citing that actresses like Elisabeth Moss (Mad Men) and Rachel McAdams (About Time) were close to signing deals to appear on the hotly anticipated second season of True Detective, their names do not appear on a new shortlist released by TheWrap. Today the site revealed the names of seven actresses currently vying to fill one of the series’ leading roles.
The actresses in question are, Brit Marling (The Keeping Room), Oona Chaplin (Game of Thrones), Jaimie Alexander (Thor), Kelly Reilly (Eden Lake), Malin Akerman (Watchmen), Rosario Dawson (Sin City: A Dame to Kill For) and Jessica Biel (Total Recall).
The actresses have reportedly been “invited back to read this week for the coveted role.” Moss and McAdams could very well still be in the running, but with writer/creator Nic Pizzolatto now focusing on auditioning a new group of actresses, he’s clearly taking all options into consideration. »

Glenn here to talk about two of my favourite people, Xavier Dolan and Jessica Chastain. We don't usually discuss casting here at The Film Experience, especially this early into a film's existence, because they can so easily fluctuate and change without a moment's notice. This, however? This is casting news we absolutely must discuss.
Dolan's most recent film (it's hard to keep track) is Mommy, which won the Jury Prize at Cannes and is getting big plaudits out of Toronto including this one from Nathaniel labelling it his best work best. Not one to rest on his 25-year-old laurels, the Canadian wunderkind Xavier Dolan has cast Jessica Chastain in his English-language debut!! I'm not sure how much about The Death and Life of John F. Donovan we know already, but the exceptionally coiffed Dolan says it is a satire of the industry and that Chastain will play the villain, an editor-in-chief of a gossip magazine. »

Adrianne Palicki is engaged to stuntman Jackson Spidell, her rep confirms to People. The couple met on the set of the action thriller John Wick, which will be released in October. Palicki is certainly having a busy fall: In addition to her engagement, the actress will be seen on ABC's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. and returning to NBC's About A Boy. Ironically, Palicki, 31, best known for her long-running role on TV's Friday Night Lights, hinted at whether she had a romantic interest while promoting G.I. Joe: Retaliation with Channing Tatum in 2013. "Oh … I don't know," Palicki said, ducking the question, although »

The talks about casting for the upcoming season of True Detective continue as another candidate for a lead role has entered the race. The female lead role, which Elisabeth Moss was at one point being considered for, now has some stiff competition. According to a new report, Rachel McAdams is in the running for the same part that Moss has been circling for the past few weeks. The other leads, Colin Farrell, Taylor Kitsch, and Vince Vaughn, are soon to be set in stone although HBO »

True Detective’s first season was distinctive for more than its one-season story arc: every episode of that initial run was directed by Cary Fukunaga, who took home an Emmy award for one instalment. It would appear that the True team is going in a different direction – no pun intended – for the second season, with Fast & Furious veteran Justin Lin in talks to handle two of the episodes.From the sounds of it, the directorial chores will be shared among several filmmakers, though no other names have been so much as rumoured so far. In fact, there is a lot still to be confirmed about the season series, written and produced once more by Nic Pizzolatto.While we do know the next run will be a reduced order of eight episodes and focus on a crime story in a different locale – California has been rumoured – casting is still up in the air, »
According to Deadline, Justin Lin – director of the last four Fast & Furious movies – is being eyed to board HBO’s True Detective, with the site reporting that Lin is wanted to direct at least the first two episodes of the critically acclaimed show’s second season.
Cary Fukunaga, who recently won an Emmy for his work on the first season, remains attached as executive producer alongside creator Nic Pizzolatto, but is not expected to direct any episodes due to his feature commitments.
So far, no casting has been confirmed for season two of True Detective, although it has been reported that Vince Vaughn (Delivery Man), Colin Farrell (Winter’s Tale) and Taylor Kitsch (John Carter) have all been in talks

While this is the first we're hearing about Rachel McAdams being in contention, Elisabeth Moss revealed last month that she had not been approached to star in the series, just days after a report revealed she was up for the female lead. However, a lot can change in one month, and it seems now that Elisabeth Moss is, in fact, in the running.
The role in question is, according to a July report, a sheriff from Montery, California who has a troubled past. Jessica Chastain was previously sought for the role in May, but she turned it down.
Last year, Justin Lin indicated he wanted to move from the “Fast & Furious” franchise into something entirely different.
Now here’s a great opportunity for the director.
Multiple sources told The Hollywood Reporter that he’s in talks to director two episodes for the upcoming “True Detective” season. Several details may still be in discussion including budgets and visions.
The second season will premiere on HBO next year.
