Taylor Kitsch Confirms Role In ‘True Detective’ Season 2

“True Detective” is HBO’s equivalent of a Marvel project. Everyone is doing everything they can to keep details under lockdown, and there have been more rumors in terms of casting than actual confirmed news. And while we know that Colin Farrell and Vince Vaughn have secured parts, the long rumored participation of Taylor Kitsch has thus far remained unofficial. Well, the actor himself reveals he’s pretty much got the gig.

In an interview with AdWeek, Kitsch confirms with an “mm-hmm” and a nod that he got the gig (though the site clarifies he’s still in negotiations), and has revealed his enthusiasm with respect to joining the acclaimed show. “I’m really excited. I’ve just been prepping. It’s been almost a full year since I’ve been on camera, so I’m itching, man. I’m overdue,” Kitsch said. “You’ve just got to grind it out. Even taking this year off was… I mean, you want to work, but you also don’t want to just water it down and work for the sake of working. So, it was tough to sit a year out, keeping a finger crossed that I was going to get ‘True.’ ”

“And having this meeting with [writer/creator] Nic Pizzolatto, it kind of brought me back to when I was here in New York and why I wanted to be a actor, why you struggle and why you don’t quit,” the actor continued. “And when we’re talking, I mean he’s obviously incredibly smart and passionate, so that rubs off. And you’re just excited to go now. I can’t fucking wait to hit camera. So I’m excited. I loved that first season of it so much. It’s just unlike anything I’ve seen in, you know, I don’t know when. And it was so grounded. It could really happen. This is very similar, and I love that. It makes it more relatable. It makes these guys more real. Nowadays, it takes fucking balls to stand by that and do it that way.”

Kitsch goes on to add the next season will shoot on location in Los Angeles, and will have an “old school vibe.” Justin Lin will direct the first two episodes of the second season. Here’s the official logline: Three police officers and a career criminal must navigate a web of conspiracy in the aftermath of a murder. And don’t forget, there’s still a female lead role to cast with Rachel McAdams recently getting an offer.


Taylor Kitsch Offered Role in ‘The Raid’ Remake

The “Friday Night Lights” star is still being considered for the second season of HBO’s “True Detective”

As rumors swirl regarding the second season of HBO’s “True Detective,” Taylor Kitsch has been offered the lead in Screen Gems’ English-language remake of “The Raid,” multiple individuals familiar with the project have told TheWrap.

While Kitsch’s team has been pushing HBO and “True Detective” creator Nic Pizzolatto to cast him as the young male lead of the second season, they’ve been positioning him for “The Raid” remake in the meantime.

Patrick Hughes (“The Expendables 3”) is directing the action movie, which is gearing up for a January 2015 shoot. Coincidentally, that is when the second season of “True Detective” is slated to wrap filming.

While two sources told TheWrap that Kitsch is in negotiations for “The Raid,” one cautioned that the two sides remain apart on financial terms of the proposed deal.

Representatives for Kitsch and Screen Gems did not immediately respond to requests for comment.

Brad Ingelsby (“Run All Night”) wrote “The Raid” remake, which is based on the original 2011 movie written and directed by Gareth Evans.

XYZ Films is returning to produce a remake that is expected to hew closely to the original film, which followed an elite Indonesian SWAT that gets trapped inside a building run by a vicious gangster and his thugs.

Kitsch recently proved he still has the dramatic chops that made him a star on “Friday Night Lights,” as he’s coming off well-reviewed turns in Ryan Murphy‘s HBO movie “The Normal Heart” and Peter Berg‘s emotional war movie “Lone Survivor.”
