True Detective Spoilers: Taylor Kitsch Joins Colin Farrell & Vince Vaughn To Round Out Season 2 Cast

True Detective‘s next season will feature Tim Riggins.

After months and months of rumors, Taylor Kitsch has finally confirmed that he will be appearing in the second season of the hit HBO drama.

It will be the actor’s first role in nearly a year as he waited for his role to be confirmed.

“I’m really excited,” said Kitsch. “I’ve just been prepping … it was tough to sit a year out, keeping a finger crossed that I was going to get True … it was just showing a lot of patience on my end and turning a lot of stuff down because I wanted to be a part of it.”

“I loved that first season,” he continued. “It’s just unlike anything I’ve seen in, you know, I don’t know when. And it was so grounded. It could really happen. This is very similar, and I love that. It makes it more relatable. It makes these guys more real.”

Kitsch joins the previously-confirmed Colin Farrell and Vince Vaughn to complete the cast.
