TV: Vince Vaughn confirmed for ‘True Detective Season 2’, plus more details revealed


A few days ago Colin Farrell confirmed that he will be taking a leading role in the highly anticipated second season of True Detective, and on the back of that, HBO have issued a press release confirming some further details.

We now have confirmation that Vince Vaughn (who was rumoured a few months ago) will be joining Farrell, and also we now know that Justin Lin (Fast & Furious) will direct the first two episodes. The announcement also has a brief plot outline, plus some character details.

The Press Release:

  • Colin Farrell and Vince Vaughn have officially joined the cast.
  • Justin Lin (Fast & Furious 6, Fast Five, Fast & Furious) will direct only the first two episodes, so unlike the first season, this season will have multiple directors.
  • The story will follow “Three police officers and a career criminal must navigate a web of conspiracy in the aftermath of a murder.”
  • Colin 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.”
  • Vince will play Frank Semyon, a “career criminal in danger of losing his empire when his move into legitimate enterprise is upended by murder of a business partner.”
  • The second season will be comprised of eight hour-long episodes.
  • True Detective season 2 will begin production in California later this fall.

A keen enthusiast and collector of all horror and extreme films. I can be picky as i like quality in my horror. This doesn't necessarily mean it has to be a classic, but as long as it has something to impress me then i'm a fan. I watch films by the rule that if it doesn't bring out some kind of emotive response then it aint worth watching.
