True Detective Adds a Bunch of Actors You’ve Seen in Other Things But Had No Idea What Their Names Were

Posted in Screening Room by - October 31, 2014

Variety reports Kelly Reilly, Abigail Spencer, Michael Irby, and Leven Rambin all are signing on to the second season for major roles. 

Season 2 of “True Detective” will focus on three police officers and a career criminal navigating a web of conspiracy in the aftermath of a murder.

Farrell 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, while Kitsch is playing Paul Woodrough, a handsome, 28-year-old military veteran who has seen his own share of violence and destruction. Vaughn will play Frank Semyon, a career criminal in danger of losing his empire when his move into legitimate enterprise is upended by the murder of a business partner.

As a huge fan of season one, I can’t wait to see where season two takes us. While none of these actors are huge names, they’ve all been parts of good projects in the past. Plus, it should put them on the map if the second season is as successful as the first season proved to be.
