Vince Vaughn is in as a career criminal trying to go legitimate.
Colin Farrell is on board as a detective with a shady past.
Taylor Kitsch has confirmed that'll be playing some role and rumors continue to circulate that Rachel McAdams will join the cast as a colleague of Farrell's.
So, who else may be taking part in True Detective Season 2?
According to Deadline, four new names/faces have surfaced as strong contenders for the next edition of this critically-acclaimed drama.
The new report states that Michael Irby will play Elvis, McAdams’ character’s partner.
Leven Rambin will play a woman with a checkered history.
Kelly Reilly will play “the self-possessed Morgan,” whatever that means.
And Abigail Spencer will play the survivor of a sexual assault.
HBO is yet to confirm any of these names. The network, in fact, has only announced that Vaughn and Farrell will be anchoring the True Detective Season 2 cast.
It has also said that the season will center on three cops and a criminal, all of whom must react to some kind of conspiracy that takes place in the aftermath of a murder.
Filming will soon be underway, with new episodes scheduled to premiere in the spring of 2015. So it's safe to assume the network has to make some follow-up announcements one of these days.
