True Detective, the hit series brought to you by HBO is currently on the hunt for a new pair of True Detectives. Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson have said they would not be returning, although we knew that already as HBO had confirmed from the beginning this was to be an anthology.
Rumor now has it that Brad Pitt’s name is being thrown around for what has now become one of the most coveted roles in Hollywood, thanks to the success of the drama. According to ‘Hollywood Life’, “Brad’s name has come up many times, it’s just a matter of what his other commitments are.”
Pitt has worked with HBO before, teaming up with Ryan Murphy last year to produce “The Normal Heart”, an HBO original movie.
If the rumors are to be believed, casting is in the very early stages. We aren’t even sure if they intend to cast a male/male partnership as they did in it’s first season. Even so, I think Brad would bring a nice grit to the role and would definitely tune in for that. What do you think? Have you watched season one? Will you watch with Brad Pitt? Let us know in the comments below.
True Detective has not yet set it’s season 2 premier date.
