Plot details have been revealed for True Detective season 2 with news HBO is considering Mad Men’s Elisabeth Moss for the female lead.
This follows earlier reports Vince Vaughn is in talks for a lead role in the second season of Nic Pizzolatto’s small screen crime drama. Colin Farrell is nearing a deal to star, while Taylor Kitsch is the frontrunner to play the younger male lead.
Keep in mind that Nic has been very guarded with details, but The Wrap has revealed what they believe is the storyline.
“The second season of True Detective will follow the death of Ben Caspar, the corrupt City Manager of a fictional California city who’s found brutally murdered amidst a potentially groundbreaking transportation deal that would forever change the freeway gridlock in California.
Three law enforcement officers from different cities and branches of the government are tasked with finding out who did it. They soon discover their investigation has much broader and darker implications than they initially thought.
Caspar’s 52-year-old corpse is found on a lonely stretch of the PCH near Big Sur – his eye burned out, genitals cut off and satanic symbols etched on his chest. It turns out he had a penchant for rough sex and may have been involved in the occult.”
