There’s an interesting rumor going around right now regarding HBO’s True Detective that is somewhat interesting. There are rumors that HBO might get Brad Pitt on True Detective. According to Hollywood Life: “Brad’s name has come up many times, it’s just a matter of what his other commitments are.
True Detective just finished it’s absolutely incredible first season run with performances by Woody Harrelson and Matthew McConaughey that has made landing a spot on season 2 one of the most coveted roles in Hollywood.
True Detective will be telling one story each season with a new cast and new story line each season. No details have been announced for the next season but rumors of Brad Pitt being interested shows just how powerful an impact True Detective had on the TV world.
For those who might scoff at Pitt being offered a role, remember, up until very recently, McConaughey was laughed at regularly as well. No one is laughing at the Oscar winner now as he has been having a pretty good year with powerful acting performances.
Given the right role, perhaps even Brad Pitt, who acts more by just being really, really, really rediculously good looking, could see the same change in attitude about his acting chops.
This is just a rumor at this point but having such a big name floating around is pretty interesting. I think season 2 of True Detective will probably land a big fish. We’ll be sure to keep you updated.
True Detective airs on HBO. Season 2 has not yet been given an air date.
