Taylor Kitsch is pretty confident he’s in True Detective season 2, though HBO still won’t confirm his deal is done.
The Lone Survivor actor told AdWeek that he “can’t f–king wait to hit camera” on the acclaimed crime drama, which is supposed to start shooting next month.
“I’m really excited,” said Kitsch, who last worked on HBO’s The Normal Heart. “I’ve just been prepping … it was tough to sit a year out, keeping a finger crossed that I was going to get True … it was just showing a lot of patience on my end and turning a lot of stuff down because I wanted to be a part of it … So I’m excited. I loved that first season of it so much. It’s just unlike anything I’ve seen in, you know, I don’t know when. And it was so grounded. It could really happen. This is very similar, and I love that. It makes it more relatable. It makes these guys more real.”
Kitsch is set to join previously announced season-two actors Vince Vaughn and Colin Farrell. Farrell will play a compromised detective and Vaughn a career criminal. Season two is set in California and is currently expected to premiere next summer.
