Supposed Breakdown of the Season 2 storyline***(possible spoilers follow, of course. YOU'VE BEEN WARNED***):
The second season of True Detective will follow the death of Ben Caspar, the corrupt city manager of a fictional California city who’s found brutally murdered amid a potentially groundbreaking transportation deal that would forever change freeway gridlock in the state. Three law enforcement officers from different cities and branches of the government are tasked with finding out who did it. They soon discover their investigation has much broader and darker implications than they initially thought.
Caspar’s 52-year-old corpse is found on a lonely stretch of Pacific Coast Highway near Big Sur—satanic symbols etched on his chest. It turns out he had a penchant for rough sex and may have been involved in the occult.
The three investigators are the Farrell, Kitsch, and McAdams characters, apparently, and they all—in keeping with the first installment of the series—have personal demons: Farrell’s character “has been damaged by years of turmoil,” the Monterey sheriff (McAdams, maybe) has taken to “gambling and alcohol,” and the CHP officer (Kitsch, perhaps) was “put on leave after soliciting” sexual favors from a woman he pulled over for drunk driving.
Vaughn’s character, meanwhile, is “a former thug turned businessman” working with local politicos on “a high-speed railway system” that would run along the California coast and provide a variety of financial opportunities, or something. This account of the plot seems to match Pizzolatto’s earlier remark that Season 2 would be about “hard women, bad men and the secret occult history of the United States transportation system.”
According to Rolling Stone, one of the directors we may see join Justin Lin in season two is none other than Andrew Dominik.
HBO was rumored to be looking at other filmmakers to handle two or three episodes apiece, including Andrew Dominik (Killing Them Softly, The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford).
Oh **** no. I did not want to find out this was based off a true story. Like you know this **** goes down but I aint want the details :x
Son.I dont know if Vince Vaughn's ability to ramble, head up, eyes looking down over you will compare to McConaugheys ability to whistle his S's while stretching his neck every way imaginable.
Who killed this girl? What kinda sick son of ***** would do this? I dont know who did this, what do you think I am? Do you know who did this? O god im getting nauseous, I need a water, can anyone get me a water. Hey you, go get me a water. Im sweating, I need a towel, anyone have a towel? How about you help me, help you, help her, find this serial killer. Can you do that? I knew you had it in ya bud. In fact, I think we alll have it in us if we just work together. Thats how the world works, it just keeps spinning and spinning and spinning. And now here we are.
In all honesty I think Vince will do very well. I like it. I take this show very seriously but cant help to make jokes imagining a role from Vince that we are typically used to. Which is why im actually excited, he's a talented dude and im looking forward to what he can dowith a role in a show like this.
