Petite friends Kate Mara and Ellen Page have been lobbying to be in the second season of True Detective for a while now, even using #TrueDetectiveSeason2 to express their interest. Though neither actress was one of the new cast members confirmed this week, Mara and Page now have their own version of the HBO show.
Well, sort of. They star in the Funny or Die parody Tiny Detectives. It’s just like True Detective, except Mara and Page are really small. They are afraid of ladders. They sleep in a shoebox. (Or do they? That’s a personal question.) Someone get Page a Smart car, or at least a booster seat.
Both Mara and Page are accomplished dramatic actresses who would be great on HBO’s actual series—but for now it seems we’ll have to settle for this.
