According to, Colin Farrell is engaged in talks to star as a leading role in the second season of the highly-acclaimed “True Detective” series.


After months of speculation and hearsay, this news makes Farrell the first actor to be publicly tied to the crime drama.


The move follows suit with their previous season’s template of casting well-known actors who are not unfamiliar with leading roles. The question remains as to who will accompany Ferrell’s character in the series follow-up. Perhaps, given Farrell’s undeniable sex appeal, the spot will be be filled by a female co-star.


Series creator, Nic Pizzolatto, has confirmed that the new season will be set in California and feature at least three lead roles. That will leave the fans of the series salivating as to who will ultimately be joining the hunky Irishman.


“True Detective” has earned multiple Emmy nominations, including lead actor nods for both Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson as well as a best drama nomination for the series.


UPDATE: Taylor Kitsch of  Disney’s “John Carter, ” X-Men Origins” and NBC’s hit series “Friday Night Lights” is the second big name to be attached to the upcoming season of “True Detective.”

Since his wee lad-dom, Pooya has been a sommelier of cinema. It was likely some acting bug, fallen from the dust riddled ruby curtains of an enchanted old stage that did it. Those cinematic scarabs must have burrowed deep into his brain, irreversibly altering his mind, turning the poor boy down a dismal path. From his earliest years the strange boy would aimlessly wander the aisles of countless video rental stores, amassing his trivial knowledge with vigor. These actions befuddled the boy’s parents, who still would lovingly oblige his unusual attraction to the motion picture. Often seeking refuge in the cushioned seating of his local movie theater, the odd adolescent would immerse himself in the scripted and effects riddled realities unfolding on the screen before him. During his collegiate years, he was twice spotted on stage performing bizarre theatrical rituals before awe-struck audiences. When he departed from academia, he left behind his youth in exchange for a labor routine, but the strange young man never lost his long-cultivated love of film. Recently, Pooya was approached by to join their budding team of entertainment bloggers. After hours of coaxing and an undisclosed number of honey jars, he accepted their offer. Finally he had come full circle. Finally, at, he was home.
