If you’re one of the 11 million people who turned in to watch each episode of HBO’s massive hit ‘True Detective,’ then like me, you are eagerly waiting for season two. Nic Pizzolatto’s brilliant TV show starred Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson as detectives trying to hunt down The Yellow King.
The first season only ended a couple weeks ago, but now all eyes are on season two. The internet is buzzing about what’s to come in the second season, and HBOGo promised season two would focus on “hard women, bad men, and the secret, occult history of the U.S. transportation system.”
There’s a new rumor swirling around, that Brad Pitt will replace Matthew McConaughey in the upcoming season. This would be absolutely AMAZING and brilliant and I hope it comes true! GQ writer Tom Carson said it best:
Whether or not this will happen is virtually beside the point. What’s remarkable is that nobody in ye olde blogosphere reacted as if the idea was preposterous, let alone treated it as evidence that Pitt’s career must be—yeah, sure—on the skids. Whatever existential gumbo (with a healthy dash of T&A Tabasco) series creator Nic Pizzolatto cooks up for his hit show’s sophomore outing, the results are bound to be more interesting than most of the movie scripts Pitt sees.
When you really think about it – Brad DOES need a good movie. Sure he was in ’12 Years a Slave’ but for a hot minute. I think something like this would be really great for his career. Who’s with me!?
