"I'm doing the second series. I'm so excited," Colin Farrell told Sunday World, confirming rumors he would be starring in the second season of HBO's "True Detective", which, I guess, makes him the first official cast member for the show's sophomore session. That is, other than Justin Lin (Fast & Furious 6) who will be directing at least two episodes. Farrell also confirmed the second season will be eight episodes, just as the first, and will take "around four or five months to shoot." "I know very little about it," Farrell added, "but we're shooting in the environs of Los Angeles which is great. It means I get to stay at home and see the kids." There are only a few details available concerning the plot, which is said to involve a trio of law enforcement officers investigating a murder that appears to be tied to the construction of a high-speed »

Colin Farrell Confirms Role In 'True Detective' Season 2, Says It Will Be Eight Episodes Long

15 hours ago | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

With a plethora of names swirling at the moment for "True Detective" — Colin Farrell, Vince Vaughn, Taylor Kitsch, Elisabeth Moss, Rachel McAdams, Brit Marling, Oona Chaplin, Kelly Reilly, Jessica Biel, Malin Akerman, Jaimie Alexander and Rosario Dawson — none had been officially confirmed by HBO for the second season, until now. Today comes news of the first actor you can bank on appearing, and it's straight from the source. Chatting with Sunday World, Farrell stated simply: “I’m doing the second series. I’m so excited.” But even more, he revealed that Nic Pizzolatto is sticking with the same number of episodes for round two, in what sounds like another tightly coiled story. "I know it will be eight episodes and take around four or five months to shoot," Farrell said. "I know very little about it, but we’re shooting in the environs of Los Angeles which is great. It »

Colin Farrell first confirmed ‘True Detective’ Season 2 cast member

16 hours ago | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Over the weekend, the Irish magazine The Sunday World featured an interview with Colin Farrell in which he confirmed that he will be in the next season of True Detective.

“I know it will be eight episodes and take around four or five months to shoot. I know very little about it, but we’re shooting in the environs of Los Angeles which is great. It means I get to stay at home and see the kids,” Farrell said.

Neither HBO nor Creator Nic Pizzolato have yet to confirm Farrell’s addition to the cast, but he was one of many names in the rumor mill, which includes Taylor Kitsch, Vince Vaughn Elisabeth Moss, Rachel McAdams and the debunked rumor of Jessica Chastain. One other rumor has involved the choice of Fast & Furious director Justin Lin to take the place of Cary Fukunaga from last season.

With its innovative format, tight focus on its central themes and a pair of juicy, powerful roles for stars Woody Harrelson and Matthew McConaughey, HBO’s True Detective captured the cultural zeitgeist during the early part of 2014. The names circling the lead roles for Season 2 of creator Nic Pizzolatto’s anthology crime drama include the likes of Vince Vaughn, and Taylor Kitsch,  along with (reportedly) more than half a dozen contenders for the female lead role.

Now, however, perhaps the starriest name said to be in final talks has confirmed his involvement: Colin Farrell told Sunday World that he has signed on for the second season, saying: “I’m doing the second series. I’m so excited.”

After the stupendous first season with Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson, actors have been fighting for a spot in Nic Pizzolatto’s unique television crime drama. Farrell spoke to the Irish Sunday World and also revealed a little more about what he knows already. He had this to say:

“I’m doing the second series. I’m so excited. I know it will be eight episodes and take around four or five months to shoot. I know very little about it, but we’re shooting in the environs of Los Angeles which is great. It means I get to stay at home and see the kids.”

Colin Farrell To Star In 'True Detective' Season 2

21 September 2014 9:00 PM, PDT | Uinterview | See recent Uinterview news »

Colin Farrell confirmed over the weekend that he’ll be appearing in the second season of HBO’s critically-acclaimed True Detective.

Colin Farrell Joins 'True Detective'

"I'm doing the second series, Farrell, 38, told Ireland’s Sunday World. I'm so excited."

"I know it will be eight episodes and take around four or five months to shoot,” Farrell added. “I know very little about it, but we’re shooting in the environs of Los Angeles which is great. It means I get to stay at home and see the kids.”

It was announced early on that True Detective season 1 stars Woody Harrelson and Matthew McConaughey would not be reprising their roles in the sophomore season.

Colin Farrell Confirmed to Star in True Detective Season 2, Offers Update on Show

21 September 2014 5:05 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

The rumors have been swirling for a while that Colin Farrell was in talks for True Detective Season 2, but now the actor has confirmed that we will indeed appear.  There's still no official confirmation that Vince Vaughn will be appearing (or Taylor Kitsch for that matter), but now that this piece of info is firmed up I would expect some more official announcements in the coming weeks. Season 2 of Nic Pizzolatto's show will reportedly take place in three different California cities with a plot that, to me, is beginning to resemble Chinatown via Zodiac in that it's about land deals but also how different law enforcement agencies intersect with each other.  The casting news came with this semi-logline that this next stretch of episodes, "looks set to pick up on the vicious murder of a corrupt businessman found dead the night before he completes a deal."  Hit the jump »

Colin Farrell confirms he's in 'True Detective' season 2

21 September 2014 3:22 PM, PDT | EW - Inside TV | See recent EW.com - Inside TV news »

Looks like Colin Farrell really is starring in True Detective season 2.

The actor himself confirmed he’s on board to Irish newspaper The Sunday World. “I’m doing the second series,” Farrell (Fright Night, In Bruges) reportedly said. “I’m so excited.” And we hear Farrell’s deal with the network is indeed either done, or very close to it.

HBO, however, officially remains mum on what’s become a rather torturous casting process (in the press anyway), as the network and creator Nic Pizzolatto seek to fill several key roles on the show in the wake of the first »

21 September 2014 12:30 PM, PDT | BuzzSugar | See recent BuzzSugar news »

Around July, rumors that Colin Farrell and Taylor Kitsch were in talks to star in True Detective's second season started swirling. Months later, we have confirmation that one of those stars is definitely in. "I'm doing the second series," Farrell recently told Irish newspaper Sunday World. "I'm so excited." Interesting. Quite a few names have been tossed out for the second season of HBO's hit drama, and we have a lot of details already, but we're still champing at the bit for more.

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, »
