As much as I had problems with the misogyny and storybaiting in season one of True Detective, I just may have to watch season 2…
HBO has confirmed some of my favorite actors are making appearances in the drama, including Rachel McAdams as the female lead, and my future husband Taylor Kitsch in a supporting role. Also just cast was Black Box alum Kelly Reilly, whom I don’t know at all so she better be GOOD.
The eight-episode second season is now in production in California, and centers around three police officers and a career criminal who must navigate a post-murder web of conspiracy (like THE NET? God, I hope so). THR reports:
Colin Farrell will play Ray Velcoro, a compromised detective whose allegiances are torn between his masters in a corrupt police department and the mobster who owns him. Vince Vaughn is set as Frank Semyon, a career criminal in danger of losing his empire when his move into legitimate enterprise is upended by the murder of a business partner.
McAdams will play Ani Bezzerides, a Ventura County Sheriff’s Office detective whose uncompromising ethics put her at odds with others and the system she serves. Kitsch is set as Paul Woodrugh, a war veteran and motorcycle officer for the CHP who is running from a difficult past and the sudden glare of a scandal that never happened. Reilly is Jordan, Frank’s wife and a former D-list actress who is a full partner in his enterprises and ambitions.
Season two, like season one, will be written and mostly cast by Nic Pizzolatto. I’m going to be all over this season, so check my twitter feed if you want in on some laughs and sweet recap action. Either way, will YOU be watching?

Rachel McAdams is featured on the cover of this month’s issue of “Allure” magazine. Inside, she discusses working with Lindsay Lohan on their movie “Mean Girls” and how much talent LiLo has. She also talks about working with late actor Philip Seymour Hoffman on their movie “A Most Wanted Man”.
With regard to Lindsay, she revealed, “If anything, I was in awe of her talent. I looked at her as this experienced actor, and she had great comedic timing, so natural. It’s just funny to hear that because you never know what people are thinking. We all try to act like we’ve got it together.”
When speaking of working with Philip, she said, “I learned so much from him. He really takes you under – he really took me under his wing. You feel very taken care of, but at the same time there’s an element of danger; There’s a crackle in every scene. He makes sure the stakes are very high, and there’s a safety there, too. He had so much natural, raw talent, but he worked so hard, too. He really worked for it and didn’t let up. I’m sure that wasn’t easy.”

At the risk of crushing many a girls’ hearts – it has come to light that Rachel McAdams and Ryan Gosling, did not in fact, have a seamless romantic love onset ‘The Notebook.’
Director Nick Cassavetes shed some light on what really happened on the set of the film adaptation of Nicholas Sparks’ novel in a new interview with VH1.
Though the film’s stars, McAdams and Gosling, played on-screen lovers and later went on to date for about two years, Cassavetes revealed that on The Notebook set they were often at odds.
“Maybe I’m not supposed to tell this story, but they were really not getting along one day on set. Really not,” the director told VH1. “And Ryan came to me, and there’s 150 people standing in this big scene, and he says, ‘Nick come here.’ And he’s doing a scene with Rachel and he says, ‘Would you take her out of here and bring in another actress to read off camera with me?’ I said, ‘What?’ He says, ‘I can’t. I can’t do it with her. I’m just not getting anything from this.'”
But all is well that ends well… or so it was for a time anyway:
In 2007, Gosling told GQ Magazine, “God bless The Notebook. It introduced me to one of the great loves of my life. But people do Rachel and me a disservice by assuming we were anything like the people in that movie. Rachel and my love story is a hell of a lot more romantic than that.”
Gosling has been dating actress Eva Mendes for the past three years, though the rumors regularly surface that they are on the rocks. As for McAdams, there were rumors swirling last month that she was hooking up with Jake Gyllenhaal – but apparently they are just friends…

According to the latest Hollywood gossip, Jake Gyllenhaal is dating Rachel McAdams. Interesting couple, no?
He was most recently linked to model Alyssa Miller, but apparently he has since moved on. ShowbizSpy reports:
JAKE Gyllenhaal is dating Rachel McAdams — according to a new report.
The pair appeared together at Lugo Caffe across from Madison Square Garden before boxer Miguel Cotto‘s fight with Sergio Martinez.
“They arrived together and sat next to each other,” said a spy, adding the actors were “in deep conversation.”
They stayed for an hour at the packed party and “looked happy and very friendly.”
Gyllenhaal wore a casual black baseball cap and jeans while McAdams went with a little back dress, and they headed over to the fight together.
Other sources have said they are friendly costars doing research for their film in which Gyllenhaal plays a pugilist.
What do you think of Jake and Rachel together? There have been worse pairings, haven’t there?
