HBO announces cast for second season of ‘True Detective’

MUMBAI: HBO has announced that Rachel McAdams, Taylor Kitsch and Kelly Reilly will join the cast for the second season of ‘True Detective’. They join the previously announced Colin Farrell and Vince Vaughn.

The eight-episode hour-long drama has begun production in California.

In the series three police officers and a career criminal must navigate a web of conspiracy in the aftermath of a murder. The series is created and written by Nic Pizzolatto.

Justin Lin will direct the first two episodes.

Farrell plays Ray Velcoro, a compromised detective whose allegiances are torn between his masters in a corrupt police department and the mobster who owns him. Vaughn meanwhile plays Frank Semyon, a criminal and entrepreneur in danger of losing his empire when his move into legitimate enterprise is upended by the murder of a business partner.

McAdams plays Ani Bezzerides, a Ventura County Sheriff’s detective whose uncompromising ethics put her at odds with others and the system she serves. Kitsch is Paul Woodrugh, a war veteran and motorcycle officer for the California Highway Patrol, running from a difficult past and the sudden glare of a scandal that never happened.

Kelly Reilly is Jordan, Frank Semyon’s wife, a former D-list actress who is a full partner in his enterprises and ambitions.
