But either the rumors were untrue or Moss passed on the project and now the female lead is all but confirmed to be Rachel McAdams. Why would Moss, who has already wrapped up her last episodes of Mad Men, pass on such a high-profile, prestige project? We may have the answer. It was announced yesterday that the Top of the Lake, the TV mini-series that garnered Moss a Golden Globe, will be coming back for a second season.

I love Rachel McAdams!

That's good news, alright. I think Mad Men is one of the greatest shows of all time, and I've come to accept Elizabeth Moss as a part of it, but I don't ever need to see her outside of that context. I would have been very disappointed if she were cast as a lead in True Detective.

The forthcoming second season of HBO’s True Detective looks to be packing some real star power. Just months ago it was revealed that Rachel McAdams, Vince Vaughn, and Colin Farrell would be starring in the upcoming iteration of the show. Now, E! reports that Rick Springfield — yes, that Rick Springfield — has also signed on with the hit crime drama.

“Just finished my 1st day of shooting for season 2 of HBO’s True Detective,” the “Jessie’s Girl” rocker tweeted yesterday. “What a great script. Working w/ Colin Farrell & Rachel McAdams!”

Details are scarce regarding Springfield’s role, including whether he’ll be a guest or regular on the series. The Australian musician’s past acting credits list stints on General Hospital, Californication, and Hot in Cleveland.

The Nic Pizzolatto-written second season of True Detective is currently in production and will be directed by a handful of folks, such as Community’s Justin Lin. It is expected to air on HBO next summer.

Here's a pic from earlier this year.

First of all, Rick Springfield? Weird. I haven't really heard about him doing anything since I was a little kid. Good for him, I guess. If he can actually act, then...OK.

Anyway, the first picture makes him look like he's in his early-to-mid thirties. The second one looks significantly older, but more like something in the 45-52 range. Would never guess 65. Dude's gotta be getting botox, but maybe he also has a good diet/exercise regimen, and stays out of the sun. :noclue:

Vince Vaughan and Rick Springfield. :hs: Not quite what I was expecting, but I'll stay open-minded.

Don't know about you guys, but it looks like it's going to be great. Colin Farrell looks amazing (as well as Vince :wink: )

It looks like it might be good, though it has nothing on the first preview of season one.

All jokes aside, the cast is top-notch this new season.

I've been a fan of Colin Farrell for a while.

Well, to me the first three or four episodes of the first season were the best. Can't say I'm shocked about the reviews either way (even though it's only seven reviews so far, and some are pretty positive). There was a lightning-in-a-bottle feel to the first season, especially with the chemistry between the two leads and with Cary Fukunaga directing the entire thing. Not to mention the fact that a second season has to be created much more quickly than the first, and it's not just a case of creating new stories for existing characters, but coming up with a new world, new characters, new everything, and it's just one guy writing all of that.

It was hard to get excited for something that's basically a completely different show than the one you liked. Nevertheless, there's a good chance I'll like it well enough to watch it all. Who knows, maybe unlike the first season it will get stronger as it goes.

Rotten Tomatoes has it at 67% positive with six reviews:

Rotten Tomatoes added two reviews, for a total of eight, and the score has gone from 67% to 75%.

Metacritic's got eight reviews and it's still at 62%. I haven't checked if they're the same reviews as the ones on Rotten Tomatoes. I don't really know how these review aggregators calculate their scores, or if one tends to give higher scores than the other.

RT now has it at 62% with 26 votes. That said, the "critics consensus" that they provide once there are a sufficient number of reviews doesn't make it sound horrible.

Critics Consensus: True Detective's second season stands on its own as a solid police drama, with memorable moments and resonant relationships outweighing predictable plot twists.
