Colin Farrell may or may not be the true detective, but he is certainly a gentleman and a scholar, as he proved on last night’s episode of Tavis Smiley. Midway through the half-hour interview, Smiley backed into a question regarding the 2004 box-office disappointment Alexander, and Farrell took up the subject with uncommon candor:
Before Colin Farrell was the True Detective (or is he?), he was a teenage suspect in an attempted murder. During a fun little game of truth-or-truth with TV clown Jimmy Fallon and True Detective costar Vince Vaughn last night, Farrell broke out the time police thought he tried to burn a man to death.
Sometimes your worst self...is your best self. We get the world the deserve. This girl’s gone missing, and nobody cares. Eat my knife, wood. This is True Detective Season 2, and clues are piling up, the tension is mounting, and the detectives are getting truer. Are you ready? Are you? Ready?
We have finally seen the signs that our exit is coming up on our trip down the long, winding road that is the casting of season two of HBO's True Detective, a television show about white people talking to each other in ponderous soliloquies. HBO has confirmed that Colin Farrell and Vince Vaughn will star in the second season of Nic Pizzolatto's anthology crime drama, playing two of three police officers tracking "a career criminal" that forces them to "navigate a web of conspiracy in the aftermath of a murder."
