TRUE DETECTIVE Adds Two More Names to Second Season

TRUE DETECTIVE Adds Two More Names to Second Season

Lolita Davidovich (pictured) and James Frain have been added to the sophomore season of TRUE DETECTIVE. That ups the quantity of notable names to the series considerably. In the inaugural season we were content with only three popular actors among the outstanding cast. They were, of course, Woody Harrelson, Matthew  McConaughey and Michelle Monaghan. Then we waited with baited breath for announcement of which stars would appear in season two. Lo and behold we learned that Colin Farrell, Taylor Kitsch and Rachel McAdams filled the roles. Then noted actor Vince Vaughn snagged the villain role. Surely, that sounded like a workable cast for the...

True Detective Season 2 Filming Finally Underway!

After months of speculation and hand wringing the stars have finally aligned (or, at least their busy schedules have!). True Detective season two will begin filming in LA next week!  How do we know this? Well recently confirmed star of season 2 tweeted as much just yesterday:   Heading to LA!!! Start filming #TrueDetective this week. @TD_HBO @HBO — Taylor Kitsch (@_TaylorKitsch) November 4, 2014Woohoo!  Get over there and do your thing, Taylor.

Taylor Kitsch and Others in TRUE DETECTIVE 2

Taylor Kitsch and Others in TRUE DETECTIVE 2

Some people are really getting worried about TRUE DETECTIVE Season Two. There are mumblings over the internet that the project is going so slow; that creator/writer Pizzolatto is taking forever to even get it cast. For example, Taylor Kitsch (pictured) has been rumored to be linked to the second season for months and we cannot even get official confirmation whether he is in it or not. Then there is the impatience of fans who are disappointed that the sophomore season has been pushed later into 2015. Personally, I don’t need the rush; I always say quality takes time. Anyway, fans, we take whatever news we can when we can, even if it is not...

VICE Media Announces Web Series that Includes A Look At HBO Shows

VICE Media recently started up a new web series on their site, Vice.com, called The Real that might, from time to time, be of interest to HBO viewers. It is a series which will profile the true stories and personalities behind just a few of Hollywood’s memorable entertainment. The Real launched because a previous piece about tracking down a true life Walter White (as in the one from Breaking Bad) proved quite popular. The series started on October 1 with a behind the facts look at HBO fave TRUE DETECTIVE. Series host Giana Toboni went down to Louisiana and linked up with two detectives, Special Agent Todd Teddler and Captain Stewart...

TRUE DETECTIVE Repeats Season One Beginning 09.14

TRUE DETECTIVE Repeats Season One Beginning 09.14

Consider the following a schedule reminder about our great Sunday night offerings. As we know BOARDWALK EMPIRE has launched its final season in the 9:00pm ET hour. However, the 10:00pm  ET hour was vacated upon the finale of THE LEFTOVERS and now needs something. As we have alluded before TRUE DETECTIVE will repeat its first season in that time slot. HBO whipped up an ad for it if you haven’t seen it.  Now surely everyone who has wanted to see Cohle & Hart tackle a creepy crime has already done so via the channel, the website and/or the DVD. If you can’t get enough of TRUE DETECTIVE as you await word of Season Two (here is...

TRUE DETECTIVE May Use “Fast & Furious” Director Justin Lin

TRUE DETECTIVE May Use “Fast & Furious” Director Justin Lin

Disappointingly there is not 100% confirmation here, but Deadline is reporting that Justin Lin is in talks to direct at least the first two episodes of Season Two of TRUE DETECTIVE. If you are not familiar with Mr. Lin he is a director/producer of a few movies in the Fast & Furious franchise and is also noted as the executive producer/director for the new Fall Show Scorpion for CBS. Assuredly, creator Nic Pizzolatto handpicked Lin to get TRUE DETECTIVE’s new season underway and other directors will be announced for further episodes. Now Mr. Lin has experience of filming and being around fast cars. This might be a stretch to say this...

True Detective Season 2 Air Date Window Shifts

True Detective Season 2 Air Date Window Shifts

Many of you have been patiently waiting for news about the HBO 2014 sleeper hit True Detective. Ever since season 1 panned up into the stars and faded to black the biggest question on all of our minds has been “when will True Detective season 2 air?” Normally HBO is very consistent with their premiere dates. A series that premieres in the spring such as Game of Thrones will continue to air in subsequent springs each and every year. Many times we’ve even been able to predict the exact Sunday that an HBO series would premiere on well before they’ve made it official.  It’s like clockwork, in a way. But True...

TRUE DETECTIVE’s Pizzolatto Accused of Plagiarism

TRUE DETECTIVE’s Pizzolatto Accused of Plagiarism

TRUE DETECTIVE has had a lot of positive news all about casting rumors and Emmy nominations, but lately some negative news surfaced when series creator Nic Pizzolatto was called out for plagiarism. You’ve got to go back to the scenes of Rust Cohle’s “interrogation” where his dark, nihilistic philosophy comes to the surface. The accusations state that a number of lines in those speeches were lifted from a writer of by the name of Thomas Ligotti. Mr. L is a prolific horror writer that seems to know his way around dark themes. If you want to check specific line for line comparisons between the two writers and formulate an opinion...

Vince Vaughn in Talks to Play True Detective Villain

Vince Vaughn in Talks to Play True Detective Villain

Though nothing is 100% confirmed we’re hearing multiple reports that Vince Vaughn (yes, that Vince Vaughn) is in talks to play a lead role in HBO’s second season of True Detective. There are supposedly four “lead roles” to be had for the new season. The first two are rumored to be played by Collin Farrel and Taylor Kitsch.  A third is supposedly a strong willed woman (the latest rumor for her is Mad Men’s Elizabeth Moss) while this fourth role will be more of a villain.  Vaughn’s character may even have some ties to the mafia but little is known or altogether confirmable at this point. Before you...

The Next Round of TRUE DETECTIVE Rumors

The Next Round of TRUE DETECTIVE Rumors

Now we know that supposedly any day now HBO will announce something official regarding the second season of the detective anthology series by Nic Pizzolatto. This writer thought it would be fun to let the rumors fly one more time before then. We have not been poking around the rumor mill and listing every little item that has been speculated, but since Brad Pitt and Jessica Chastain’s name have been dropped other noted names have been bandied about as well. How about Joaquin Phoenix, Christian Bale, Michael Fassbender and/or Josh Brolin? Cate Blanchett also surfaced as a good possibility. The latest buzz has touched many sites including...
