A few weeks ago, word got out that Colin Farrell was in talks to star in True Detective season 2.
Neither Farrell nor HBO has come forward to deny the rumor, so at this point we can pretty much assume it's a done deal.
The only question remaining, then, is who will take on the role of Farrell's inevitably boozy, brooding partner in crime (solving)?
Well, if you guessed Vince Vaughn, then clearly time really is a flat circle and you've been through this before, because that pretty much would've been out last guess.
Sure, Vaughn has taken on dramatic roles in the past (with mixed results), but he's hardly the first name that springs to mind when you think of subject matter as relentlessly dark as True Detective's.
