While we still do not have a confirmation of the cast of season two of “True Detective,” we do have some major plot details. In addition, more actors are being thrown into the mix of possible headlining actors for the upcoming second season.
Thanks to the The Wrap, we have the base of what season two of “True Detective” will revolve around.
The second season of “True Detective” will follow the death of Ben Caspar, the corrupt city manager of a fictional California city who’s found brutally murdered amid a potentially groundbreaking transportation deal that would forever change freeway gridlock in the state. Three law enforcement officers from different cities and branches of the government are tasked with finding out who did it. They soon discover their investigation has much broader and darker implications than they initially thought.
Caspar’s 52-year-old corpse is found on a lonely stretch of Pacific Coast Highway near Big Sur — his eye burned out, genitals cut off and satanic symbols etched on his chest. It turns out he had a penchant for rough sex and may have been involved in the occult.
Also according to a report from The Wrap, Vince Vaughn is now being looked at to star in a central role though this has not been confirmed by the actor or the show’s producers. Colin Farrell and Taylor Kitsch are still in talks to land the other lead roles while Elisabeth Moss is being eyed for the female lead role though Michelle Forbes is also being discussed.
HBO nor Nic Pizzolatto has not confirmed any of the reports on casting but as production nears it is expected to be officially announced soon.
