Colin Farrell Just Confirmed Being Cast In The New Season Of ‘True Detective’

With all the rumors swirling around who the new cast of True Detective will be comprised of, we finally have one actor who’s been confirmed:

Colin Farrell

[The] 38-year-old star said, “I’m doing the second series. I’m so excited.”
“I know it will be eight episodes and take around four or five months to shoot. I know very little about it, but we’re shooting in the environs of Los Angeles which is great. It means I get to stay at home and see the kids.”
Farrell revealed the rest of the cast are still being locked down.

If that doesn’t have you pumped then you have no soul. Colin Farrell is a complete sarcastic badass.

But fine. If you’re not as easily excited for the new season as I am, here’s a few plot details to give you an idea of what season 2 will be like:

Nic Pizzolatto has returned to pen the next series, which looks set to pick up on the bloody murder of a corrupt city businessman found dead the night before a major transportation deal.
Three police officials from different cities are put in charge of solving the high profile case.
While the first season was directly solely by Emmy winner Cary Fukanaga, the new run will likely make use of multiple directors. No one has been confirmed as yet, but William Friedkin and The Fast and the Furious’ Justin Lin are among rumoured names.

Only a few more months of waiting, only a few more months.
