The All American actor and Irish wild child reunite for the upcoming season of True Detective Season 2. I can’t fathom how absolutely amazing the season will be, especially as neither of the two have been in the limelight for quite some time now! Farrell may have shed the whiskey and his bad boy image, but his Irish charm still remains. As for Vaughn, we hear he has been spending time being happily married to Canadian realtor Kayla Weber. Totes adorbs!
We may still be living in the Mcconaissance Era, but True Detective lives up to expectations by casting Colin Farell and Vince Vaughn. The American television crime drama series on HBO created and written by Nic Pizzolattohad me on the edge of my seat last season. The story was well written and the show spurred a lot of interest even after the eight episodes ended in March. Fans from the world over (including me) became self dubbed detectives and started piecing together the subliminal and not so subliminal clues that had been presented during the series! I won’t ruin the plot for you, but essentially the series used multiple timelines to track the journey of two Louisiana State detectives as they hunt for a serial killer.
According to the recent press release, Colin Farell will play Ray Velcoro, “a compromised detective whose allegiances are torn between his masters in a corrupt police department and the mobster who owns him.” Vaughn will play 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 writer, Nic Pizzolatto, claims that the series will be filmed in California! How exciting!
I absolutely can’t wait for this next season! If the first season is any foreshadowing for what is to come, we are in for the most intriguing show to hit television in a while! Are you as excited to see the two actors as we are? Tell us in the comments below!
