True Detective (HBO) -- Season 2 News, Rumors

Instead of bumping up the season finale thread over and over, I figured it's time to start a generic thread for season 2.

http://www.vanityfair.com/vf-hollywo...ctive-season-2

Jessica Chastain has reportedly been offered the lead role for season 2. It's only a rumor at this point. No confirmation from HBO or her reps.

IMO, If HBO wants season 2 to be ready for 2015, they need to cast the leads soon.

Brad Pitt being a strong rumor for the other lead

Pitt/Chastain, I can support that.

E! News is reporting the Chastain's reps are saying she will not be doing the series:

I would love if she did... but her schedule looks much too full.

Hrmm, Maybe the Brad Pitt stuff might be true, you saw how quickly Chastain squashed the rumors. Sad we are losing Chastain though.

So who to pair with Pitt?

Pair up Brad Pitt with Ed Norton. The two have worked together in the past, and they are have also been connected with each other via the Lewis & Clark long rumored mini-series.

I say bring back Pitt and Norton for a reunion. Just don't have a twist where it turns out they are the same person....again!!!

Dammit! Why did the Chastain thing turn out to be a rumor? I am glad she is busy, but this is the second time she has had to turn down a role in something I would like (the other being Iron Man 3) .

Apparently Chastain is too busy with films.

What about a Brad Pitt & Gary Oldman pairing..

Or even a Brad Pitt & Daniel Day Lewis lol, you would just give him the emmy right now.

Can't see Pitt doing a series at this point as awesome as it would be. Then again, I never thought I'd see Julia Roberts in a TV movie so fingers crossed I guess.

I think we have broken the Movie/TV stereotypes with this very own show, I never thought Matthew would have done Season 1

If we're looking for a female movie star who might be available for a limited tv series, how about Jodie Foster? Pairing her with Pitt would match the stars of the two best, most iconic crime thrillers of the nineties. I'd watch.

Jodie Foster would work, I always thought this would be the perfect vehicle to get Hilary Swank back in the limelight.

Re: True Detective (HBO) -- Season 2 News, Rumors

HBO really has broken the barrier with TV movies in terms of both directors and stars. No one would have ever thought they would see A movie scripted and directed by David Mamet starring Al Pacino and Helen Mirren on HBO, but it happened. Even moreso a movie about Liberace directed by Steven Soderbergh starring Michael Douglas and Matt Damon.

Seems that HBO is the only place rated R type dramas with big stars can get made anymore.

I don't care for Chastain that much so I won't mind if that rumor turns out to be false. Pitt could be an interesting choice but seems like a pretty big name for something like this. Then again Harrelson and McConaughey are both fairly big names too.

Re: True Detective (HBO) -- Season 2 News, Rumors

Jessica Chastain addressed “True Detective” casting rumors at the amfAR event at the Hotel du Cap in Cannes on Thursday night.

Earlier this week, several websites reported the actress was offered a lead role in season two of the HBO series.

“That news broke yesterday, and everybody went crazy on the Internet,” Chastain said on the red carpet, confirming she won’t star in season two of the drama.

“It’s an awkward thing because when all that attention happens — it takes away from whoever plays the role.”

“I’m a big fan of the series,” Chastain said, adding she was drawn to Matthew McConaughey’s and Woody Harrelson’s performances. “I’m going to watch the second season just like I watched every episode of the first.”

Chastain stars in the Cannes film “The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby.”

Please no Brad Pitt.

I would like to see Michael Shannon tackle this material.

I dunno. Pitt still is the starring lead in $200 million dollar blockbusters. Matthew has had half a dozen straight to video releases in the last couple of years. Big difference on this level of casting.

I have no interest in Pitt. I was really hoping for Hopkins/Chastain in a teacher/student type deal.

Huh? Here's what's he's done the last couple of years:

The Wolf of Wall Street
Dallas Buyers Club
Mud
The Paperboy

Two Best Picture nominees, one of which he won an Oscar for, a critically acclaimed indie, and a poorly reviewed box office bomb. No straight to video releases in that time frame.

Re: True Detective (HBO) -- Season 2 News, Rumors

More details have emerged about the cast and setting of “True Detective” season two, which will focus on three new leads, according to creator Nic Pizzolatto.

In a recent interview with public radio program “To the Best of Our Knowledge,” Pizzolatto revealed that in the new season’s current form, “we’re working with three leads. It takes place in California — not Los Angeles, but some of the much lesser known venues of California — and we’re going to try to capture a certain psychosphere ambiance of the place, much like we did in season one.”

He added, “The characters are all new, but I’m deeply in love with each of them. We’ve got the entire series broken out with a couple of scripts, and we’ll probably start casting in earnest in the coming months.”

The show’s anthology format means that season two will be entirely self-contained and distinct from its freshman year, with no plans for season one stars Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson to return — something that differentiates the series from FX’s “American Horror Story,” which recycles actors from past seasons in new roles.

Pizzolatto previously told HitFix that “True Detective” season two would be about “hard women, bad men and the secret occult history of the United States transportation system.”

Last week, rumors circulated that “Zero Dark Thirty” star Jessica Chastain was offered a role in season two, but the actress denied the buzz on the red carpet at Cannes. “It’s an awkward thing because when all that attention happens — it takes away from whoever plays the role,” she said. “I’m a big fan of the series. I’m going to watch the second season just like I watched every episode of the first.”
