Los Angeles: Actor Vince Vaughn will star alongside Colin Farrell on the upcoming second season of 'True Detective'.
HBO confirmed that the duo will replace main cast Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson from the first season of the crime anthology, reportedly.
Vaughn is announced to portray a character named Frank Semyon, "a career criminal in danger of losing his empire when his move into legitimate enterprise is upended by the murder of a business partner."
Meanwhile, Farrell is going to play Ray Velcoro, "a compromised detective whose allegiances are torn between his masters in a corrupt police department and the mobster who owns him."
The new season will revolve around "three police officers and a career criminal must navigate a web of conspiracy in the aftermath of a murder."
The two other leads, one of which is expected to be a prominent actress, haven't been revealed. Nic Pizzolatto who created the show and penned the first season will write the second one. 'Fast & Furious' director Justin Lin is tapped to serve behind the lens, replacing Emmy winner Cary Fukunaga from the first season.
Production is expected to begin soon in California.
