A-lister to take Matthew McConaughey’s place in True Detective

It’s the TV show everybody is talking about – and the TV show all of Hollywood wants to be involved in, even Brad Pitt!

Brad is said to be up for a major role in the show after it was reported that he has “tight relations with HBO.”

Having run a successful first series, HBO are apparently planning the cast for the second series of True Detective.

The series is written by creator Nic Pizzolatto as an anthology series meaning that each series will have different leads and different plots and places.

It had been speculated that the next detectives on the show would both be female but this latest rumour seems to dispel that.

There will certainly be no shortage of Hollywood stars clambering for a place on the show because “the roles are just so exquisite and complex.”

Will they match up to the genius pairing that was Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson though?
