It’s Official: I’m Watching True Detective This Season

"About Time" Munich Screening

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?

Taylor Kitsch and His Jeans… A Love Story

Taylor Kitsch Arriving On A Flight At LAX

Who doesn’t love them some Taylor Kitsch?  Well.  I guess if you didn’t watch the AMAZING show, Friday Night Lights, you may not have the full appreciation of him, since his subsequent film career has been a bit lackluster (read: disappointment… let us not discuss John Carter…).  I would really love some excellent roles for this fella.  My husband and I literally considered the name ‘Riggins’ due to his much loved character on FNL.  Perhaps I’m going off on an unnecessary tangent…

Anyway – Kitsch will be appearing on Ryan Murphy’s HBO’s TV movie, ‘The Normal Heart,’ along with a star-studded cast that includes Jonathan Groff, Matt Bomer, Julia Roberts, Jim Parsons and Mark Ruffalo.  The film is about a gay activist in the 80′s trying to raise awareness about HIV/AIDS.  So I suspect it will be excellent and possibly tear inducing…

Kitsch and his costars are interviewed by The Hollywood Reporter, and my lover, I mean, Kitsch, explains how he fell in love with a vintage pair of Calvin Klein jeans.  (Endorsement deal here… Calvin Klein!)

“I’m not flattering myself, but they had to get the crotch elongated,” Kitsch said, moving his hands farther and farther apart to demonstrate.

“You just flattered yourself, there’s no two ways about it,” protested Normal Heart co-star Jim Parsons. “The first time you walked off the set in those jeans, I went, ‘What brand are those?’

And he goes, ‘Don’t worry about it.’ ”

Added Mark Ruffalo with a laugh: “Those are amazing!”

Kitsch said he wore the jeans “as many times as they let me,” adding that he and director Ryan Murphy had “mini-battles” over how often the pants could appear in the film.

I have nothing further to add… other than that ‘The Normal Heart’ will air at the end of May on HBO.

Taylor Kitsch And Blake Lively Sex Scenes: AWKWARD

Battleship and Savages star Taylor Kitsch is NOT a fan of sex scenes!

Says the star of his extremely intimate scenes in Savages with hot costar Blake Lively:

“It’s very awkward to do, you know, and I was just glad it was over with, to be honest…And it’s such a big part of [my character] and who he is, and that’s how you meet him. So it’s a pretty intense reveal, no pun intended.”

Kitsch, 31, barely knew Lively before they started filming, so they had to um, make do.

“A lot of sexual improv was going on there,” he says. “God knows we had two weeks of rehearsal, so we talked until we were about to pass out, and then [we shot the sex scenes] on the day I think I knew Blake three days … four days maybe.”

Gabbing with an ubersexy actor doesn’t sound like the worst thing in the world to me- but I get how things might be a bit less natural than a true-to-life sexual encounter would warrant.  Still- Lively is not the best actress (in my humble opinion), so I wonder how these scenes turned out.  Guess I’ll have to fork up the money to see Savages, eh?

Thoughts?

Rihanna appears at the ‘Battleship’ premiere shortly after medical emergency!

Last night was Rihanna’s first appearance since being treated for “the flu” earlier this week. She walked the blue carpet at the L.A. premiere of her new film, ‘Battleship’.

Rihanna has dispelled rumors that her hospital stay was due to multiple nights of partying, and instead because she had the flu.

Rihanna wore a long white dress that exposed her thigh (ala Angelina Jolie).

“I’ve gotta hold on to my outfit a little tighter than usual,” she joked to “Access Hollywood.”

The star also spoke to the show about her medical treatment following the Met Costume Institute Gala in New York Monday night.

“I’m a lot better now… I had a couple days to rest and get rehydrated,” she said. “I just had the flu and I kept working and I wasn’t getting better so I took couple days off to sleep and I feel great.”

While Rihanna held that she was just under the weather earlier this week, reports have said that the star was partying overtime. Sources said that the singer had been drinking and smoking more than usual, one alleging that she was “going wild.” Before her appearance on “Saturday Night Live” this weekend, Rihanna opted out of a dress rehearsal, Lorne Michaels telling The Post that this was a first for a musical guest in the history of the 37-year-old show.

Still, Rihanna appeared in good spirits at the “Battleship” premiere. The film marks her acting debut.

“After I started doing videos, [acting] felt like something that I would be interested in,” she told “Access Hollywood.” “I didn’t know if I was gonna be any good or like it. But I tried it thanks to Peter Berg and Universal and it has been really tremendous, this experience.”

Also at the premiere: Malin Ackerman, Brooklyn Decker, Alexander Skarsgard and Taylor Kitsch.
