Well, you can add another big Hollywood name to the True Detective rumor mill.
TVLine is reporting that Vince Vaughn is in preliminary talks to play one of the three leads in the HBO drama’s upcoming second season.
Vaughn joins previously rumored leads Colin Farrell and Taylor Kitsch as the show’s new stars. If the entire rumored trio is cast, it would leave one open spot in the four leading roles that the show’s creator Nic Pizzolatto has promised for True Detective‘s sophomore run.
The anthology format of True Detective (where each season reboots with new settings and characters) has allowed the network to reach out to big names who might not otherwise want to commit to multiple seasons of a series.
Season 1 of True Detective, which took place in Louisiana with a narrative that fluctuated between the mid-’90s and the present, earned Emmy nominations yesterday for Best Drama and Lead Actor in a Drama for stars Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson, neither of whom will return for Season 2.
