She'd be great, one of the best actresses around.

She's right in the middle of a McConaheagh type mega star run.

She's opposite him in Nolan's interstellar. Tieing TD together with those two actors considereing the show is otherwise not connected would by a nifty PR trick.

And in summer 2015 she's got Mission Impossible.

In between it's a bunch of good directors in stuff that sounds like Oscar bait, opposite other good actors. Even a genre flick thrown in there, a horror/suspense thing from Guillermo Del Toro.

If she squeezes True Detective in there too you could be talking her q-rating going through the roof.

Some ten pages back, I predicted Chastain and Theron. If this happens, halfway there

As for the setting of Season 2, it takes place in California not Los Angeles but some of the much lesser-known venues of California and were going to try to capture a certain psychosphere ambiance of the place, much like we did in Season 1, said Pizzolatto.

He previously said the new season of True Detective would be about hard women, bad men and the secret occult history of the United States transportation system.

Just finished up season 1. Wow. One of the best tv shows I've seen yet. The character development and acting was off the charts.

I was reading back in the thread, and man I wish there was more into Maggie/the daughter. I really think Joyner was on to something. The spiral drawing in the daughter's room, the action figure rape configuration, the drawings, and omg Maggie's painting being the exact same as the painting on the wall in one of those cult locales. I think it's cool though that they left this open ended in a way...as we get to be the true detectives.

I think it's very plausible that Maggie/her family had some involvement in the cult...but ah we shall never know.

Great first season, can't wait for the next story in season 2.

D-Rose after a long time of thinking I've come to the conclusion that Marty was the ''yellow king'' and the one involved into the whole thing, not his wife Maggie.
