September 17th, 2014 by Marc Comments

With Colin Farrell, Taylor Kitsch and Vince Vaughn all apparently signed on for True Detective Season 2,  Nic Pizzolatto and HBO are, it seems, closing in on a female lead too.

The Wrap is reporting that seven actresses, Brit Marling, Oona Chaplin, Kelly Reilly, Jessica Biel, Malin Akerman and Jaimie Alexander, are in contention for the role with Clerks 2 actress Rosario Dawson being the favourite.

We’ll let you know more as and when we hear it…

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
