After months of speculation that Colin Farrell would replace Woody Harrelson and Matthew McConaughey on True Detective, the actor has apparently confirmed the news himself.
TVLine reports that Colin Farrell told an Irish newspaper that he will appear in the sophomore season of the HBO drama.
The Irish actor reportedly told Ireland’s Sunday World, “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.”
An HBO spokesperson could not confirm Farrell’s casting at this time.
Farrell also confirmed that shooting for the series would take place in Los Angeles.
