Los Angeles: Actor Colin Farrell is in talks to star in the highly anticipated second season of `True Detective`.
The 38-year-old Irish actor will board Nic Pizzolato`s acclaimed series, which starred Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson in its first outing, reported Variety.
"I think the people we will cast will be well-known names. But that wasn`t our ambition (in season 1)," Michael Lombardo said.
It is rumoured that Farrell will be joined by a female co-star, though Nic Pizzolatto confirmed that the show will feature four lead roles.
"They didn`t exist until I created them, then in their creation I developed a personal attachment to them," Pizzolatto said of his new characters.
"I think it`s the same in anything you write. It`s your job to come up with compelling characters who speak to an individual authenticity. If I`m not interested in the characters I can`t go on. I have to be fascinated by them. It`s the same job as Season 1 to me."
