The first read-through for Season 2 of “True Detective” is scheduled for Friday (Oct. 31), which means it’s fairly important for the show to have, you know, actors to play the parts.
Well, problem (largely) solved. While deals for reputed stars Taylor Kitsch and Rachel McAdams are apparently not yet signed, the HBO series has signed (or is about to sign) several other actors to join those two and fellow stars Colin Farrell and Vince Vaughn.
Abigail Spencer (“Rectify”), Kelly Reilly (“Black Box”), Michael Irby (“Almost Human”) and Leven Rambin (“The Hunger Games”) are all set to be part of Season 2, Deadline reports.
Reilly’s character is described only as a “self-possessed” woman named Morgan, but there’s a little bit more information about the others:
– Spencer will play Alicia, the survivor of a sexual assault.
– Irby is Elvis, the partner of McAdams’ police officer character.
– Rambin is Sophia, “a beauty with a history of drug problems.”
Season 2 of “True Detective” will revolve around three cops played by Farrell, McAdams and Kitsch and a career criminal (Vaughn) whose move into the legitimate world is complicated greatly when an associate of his is killed. It’s expected to air sometime in 2015 on HBO.
