Season one of True Detective has come and gone and Sunday looks to be completely depressing and empty with the lack of a new episode. So, now begins the speculation on the cast of season two as EARLY speculative rumors are coming up that Brad Pitt will star in season two. Via Hollywood Life:
Audiences were no doubt bummed when Matthew broke the news that he and his co-star/best buddy Woody would not be returning for Season 2 — instead, the series will focus on a completely different case, with new detectives — but it does leave the door open for some exciting casting possibilities. And HollywoodLife.com has learned EXCLUSIVELY that one name in particular is standing far above the rest.
“Brad’s name has come up many times, it’s just a matter of what his other commitments are,” an insider tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY. “It’s the show everyone wants to be on, because the writing and the roles are just so exquisite and complex. Brad has tight relations with HBO — he teamed up with Ryan Murphy last year to produce the HBO movie The Normal Heart. I know everyone would be thrilled to have him onboard.”
Basically, his name was brought up and they don’t know his schedule. Yeah, sounds like he’s reading the script already, or you know, nothing at all. Brad Pitt is an amazing actor, and the movie Se7en is about as messed up as it comes in terms of detective stories. I would think it would be a good fit, but as Dustin previously posted about possible women being the detectives, I’m not sure what his role would be if he wasn’t the lead detective. Unless… he is the killer?!
