It’s almost one half of a #TrueDetectiveSeason2: Rick Springfield has confirmed that he will be in the upcoming season of HBO’s anthology series. Springfield tweeted:
Just finished my 1st day of shooting for season 2 of HBO’s True Detective. What a great script. Working w/ Colin Farrell & Rachel McAdams!

It’s unclear just what kind of role Springfield has on the show, which will star the aforementioned Farrell and McAdams, as well as Vince Vaughn and Taylor Kitsch. The logline for the upcoming season is: “Three police officers and a career criminal must navigate a web of conspiracy in the aftermath of a murder.” Where the man behind “Jessie’s Girl” fits into that is anyone’s guess. Springfield also has a role in Jonathan Demme’s upcoming Ricki and the Flash, starring Meryl Streep.
HBO declined to comment on Springfield’s involvement.
