Having dealt with the flat circle-ish-ness of time in Bruges, Belgium, Colin Farrell will now bring his existential musings to season 2 of True Detective! The actor confirmed that he’ll be joining the show, telling The Sunday World that he was “so excited” and then giving them these tiny, tiny, tantalizing details:
“I know it will be eight episodes and take around four or five months to shoot,” he said. “I know very little about it, but we’re shooting in the environs of Los Angeles which is great.”
That’s not enough, Colin Farrell! You have giant Texan shoes to fill! Quick, give us some sub-dorm-room philosophy, or a story about your dad cooking with beer in his underwear! Make shit up! Will there be a new Yellow King? Is this talk of The Crying of Lot 49 on the mark? Are we getting Jessica Chastain or Elisabeth Moss? Or both? Both would be great! At least explain what the hell the “secret occult history of the United States transportation system” is supposed to mean!
Come on, man. Lead us into the Farrellaissance.
