After Colin Farrell told the Irish press last weekend that he was joining the cast of the critically acclaimed crime drama True Detective, HBO has just confirmed that both Farrell and Vince Vaughn will star in the series' second season.
The news comes via press release, and details both actors' roles. Farrell will play Ray Velcoro, a "compromised detective" caught between his bosses and the mob. Vaughn will play Frank Semyon, a career criminal about to lose his empire after the death of a business partner. Director Justin Lin, known for his work in the The Fast and The Furious franchise, is slated to direct the first two episode in the new run. There's still no word, however, on the new season's female lead.
