True Detective was a surprise runaway hit for HBO, and the 2014 Emmy nominations indicate that the show is just as popular with the Academy as it was with viewers.
Naturally, there's a lot of pressure on showrunner Nic Pizzolatto to deliver again in season 2, and the show's one-and-done anthology format means that acclaimed stars Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson won't be returning for a second go-round.
So who will fill the (probably gritty, psychologically complex) voice in the show's second season?
Well, rumors that Jessica Chastain will join True Detective were shot down months ago, and no new casting information was leaked until today.
According to unconfirmed reports, it now looks as though Irish actor Colin Farrell will continue the show's tradition of transplanting big screen stars to the world of premium cable.
