Next 'True Detective' To Have Four Leads, Two of Those Probably Being Colin Farrell and Taylor Kitsch
While the first season of True Detective drew from the casting pool of guys you'd find stoned on a beach, it seems the second will pluck from batch of guys you wouldn't be surprised if they owned a motorcycle. According to The Wrap, Colin Farrell is in talks to join the next season of the hit HBO series, Battleship's Taylor Kitsch is said to be "the leading candidate" to play his young protégé. Both are already accustomed to using hair length as a signifier of period changes, so they should do just fine.
Meanwhile, speaking to The Daily Beast, series creator Nic Pizzolatto said that, while he initially envisioned three leads for the next season, that number has since "ballooned a little bit; he now says "there are four central roles." They're gonna need more Lone Stars.
