‘True Detective’: HBO Confirms Colin Farrell, Vince Vaughn to Star in Season 2

HBO at long last has confirmed the first specifics about season two of drama series “True Detective,” including the casting of Colin Farrell and Vince Vaughn in lead roles.

Story will revolve around three cops and career criminal who navigate a web of conspiracy after a murder.

Farrell plays Ray Velcoro, a compromised detective whose allegiances are torn between his masters in a corrupt police department and the mobster who owns him. Vaughn plays Frank Semyon, a man in danger of losing his criminal empire when his move into legitimate enterprise is upended by the murder of a business partner.

“Fast and Furious” helmer Justin Lin is on board to direct the first two episodes of the eight-episode season. Lensing is set to begin later this fall in California for a January premiere.

Series creator Nic Pizzolatto is again penning all eight episodes for the new season.

There’s still no word about additional cast members, which are expected to include a femme in the role of a police officer.

The drama surrounding the planning for the second installment of “True Detective” has reached feverish levels, even by HBO standards.

The success of the first series, which was buoyed by the star power of Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson, has set the bar high for season two.
