Wouldn’t it be kind of funny if there is no “True Detective” Season 2 planned, and HBO is just messing with us?
That’s kind of how it felt Monday as Vince Vaughn was mentioned as the latest possible addition to Nic Pizzoletto’s anthology. TVLine says the “Swingers” actor is in “preliminary talks” to join Colin Farrell and Taylor Kitsch, who have also been reported to be in talks, though nothing is confirmed.
HBO chairman Richard Plepler said at a Television Critics Association panel that the network was about a week away from some “True Detective” announcements.
But that was three weeks ago.
Asked Monday about the Vaughn report, HBO said it had nothing to confirm. Vaughn’s representatives did not respond to requests for comment.
