RUMOUR: Brad Pitt eyeing role in True Detective Season 2?

May 15th, 2014 by Marc Comments

I openly admit I wasn’t a fan of True Detective Season 1. While I could appreciate the the performances, direction and look of the show, I felt it was overblown and self-indulgent BUT I also appreciate it has a massive following and everything’s not for everyone, right?

Well it seems that Brad Pitt is considering a role in the second season. It is unlikely at this stage that Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson will return as the idea is seemingly a new cast and story each series.

Now, we are treating this as a RUMOUR only because the original source is the UK Red top The Daily Star, which is, let’s be honest, not very trustworthy. But let’s run with it as speculation only: “Brad is already part of the HBO family and if commitments allow he will be part of the second season of True Detective. The quality of the scripts means the biggest A-listers in the world want the role,” they report.

They say Pitt is currently working out a deal with HBO and, if scheduling allows it, he really wants to be in it.

No word if director Cary Fukunaga will return.

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….
