The hot HBO drama True Detective has been on our minds for its recent Emmy nominations, but we're also looking to next season. We've been keeping up on all the season two details , but obviously we're most excited to find out who will be starring in the cable anthology. We have a handful of names of stars to go with the potential characters, along with some new plot details (the season will follow the murder of a corrupt city manager and be set in California). Though HBO hasn't confirmed anything yet, here are the actors who are currently being associated with season two!
Mad Men star Elisabeth Moss , who won a Golden Globe for playing a detective in miniseries Top of the Lake, may play one of the detectives . Named Ani Bezzerides, her character would be a Monterey sheriff struggling with gambling and alcohol.
A few weeks ago, we heard that Colin Farrell  is in talks to play one of the detectives , a cop named Ray Velcoro.
Taylor Kitsch's name first came up alongisde Farrell's; reportedly, he's being eyed for the younger lead , a 28-year-old military veteran named Paul Woodrugh.
Earlier this week, it was reported that Vince Vaughn is in talks  for a lead role. It's sounding like he won't be playing one of the detectives, though; The Wrap reports that Vaughn will play "the central anatgonist,"  Frank Semyon, — though he's not necessarily the villain.
Michelle Forbes, who you may recognize from The Killing or True Blood, is rumored to be up for a role. The Wrap reports that she may play the wife  of either Farrell or Vaughn's character.
