Matthew McConaughey says he is open to returning to True Detective

Before Matthew McConaughey won the Oscar for DALLAS BUYER'S CLUB, the actor was on the cusp of a career resurgence thanks to his amazing turn as Rust Cohle on HBO's anthology series TRUE DETECTIVE. By many accounts, TRUE DETECTIVE may be the finest performance of McConaughey's career, but with a Best Actor trophy under his arm, the smooth talking Texan is now starring in Christopher Nolan's INTERSTELLAR and could be up for any number of major roles. But, does that mean his TRUE DETECTIVE days are numbered?

In an interview with Deadline, McConaughey was asked about agreeing to TRUE DETECTIVE since it was only a one season commitment. The actor was very specific that he did not want to be contracted for multiple years, which likely means that we will never see him play a superhero, but it also seems that the experience on this particular run may have changed his mind a bit.

I liked True Detective, the whole series and the experience of making it, so much that Id be open to doing another one now. At the time, I was looking at six months and not beyond that. I dont know of a feature film Id sign for where Im going to say, If this works, youve got me whenever you want me for the next three years.

While he sounds like he would be open to any number of TV series, I would think the relationship with HBO and the acclaim from TRUE DETECTIVE would make McConaughey open to playing a totally different character much like Jessica Lange from year to year on AMERICAN HORROR STORY. Maybe it won't be for the second season, but here's hoping we see Matthew McConaughey back for season three.

It would be cool to see him return. But they should hold off on it for a few seasons. Spring it on people out of nowhere in season 4 or 5. Have the detectives of that season get a tip from a PI and it turns out to be Matt and Woody.

No doubt Matt and Woody were amazing in this show, however I like the idea of new detectives each time in a new city on a new case that is something new. Now sign Pitt and Norton for the next season.

MM's acting on TD season 1 is simply some of the finest acting (TV or film) that I've ever seen. He was mesmerizing...I would love to see him come back somehow.

I don't know about him playing a different character in True Detective because he has just so cemented the role of Rust. But I'd sure love the f*ck out of him coming back as Rust in prequel form to his undercover glory daze. Pun intended.

Like a Sin City...

type of anthology series, where all the stories exist in the same world, it'd be cool to see characters and elements from previous seasons occasionally pop up in an episode or two. I don't know what the case will be for season two, or what the timespan will be, but it'd be cool say, if the new Detective's crossed paths with Cohle, possibly even during his undercover NARCO days.

The show would be dumb not to sign him back for season three, four, etc.
