Rumor: Vince Vaughn in talks to join True Detective season 2

08.04.2014

Last month we reported that Colin Farrell was in talks to take a lead role in HBO’s highly anticipated second season of True Detective. Fantastic casting; Farrell is certainly an underrated talent who could bring it to the small screen for a revival of sorts for sure. Plot details indicated that there are only three lead roles: Farrell’s character who is suffering cocaine addiction and anger management issues; an alcoholic female sheriff addicted to gambling, and a young highway patrolman who was suspended for sexually exploiting a woman he pulled over. A wild bunch you might say.

Now rumored to fit right into that team is Vince Vaughn, who is “in preliminary talks to play one of the three leads,” although the story continues to reveal that Pizzolatto says there will be “four central roles”. The last we heard from True Detective creator Nic Pizzolatto, he was saying how everything we have been hearing was untrue when it came to casting. So this should all be taken as rumor at this point; a rumor that might bring joy to some while anger to others. I like Vaughn when he’s not in a paint-by-numbers comedy (DELIVERY MAN, THE INTERNSHIP, COUPLES RETREAT) and instead, is playing a slightly darker version of the person I imagine he is (OLD SCHOOL, MADE, SWINGERS).

This would be a smart move for the actor who might be looking to turn to more drama soon enough; his next role is in TERM LIFE where he plays a guy wanted around town by various hit men who hopes to stay alive long enough for his life insurance policy to kick in and pay out for his estranged daughter.

What do you think of this potential casting?

I think Vince Vaughn would be inspired, and could work really well for this.

Schnikeys!

Man I got super excited when I read this. I'm taking everything with a grain of salt right now but I really enjoy Vaughn in everything he does. This could be great and show the haters that he can act.

If you dont know Vince Vaughn started out as a serious dramatic actor and independent film was really his bread and butter, so I would totally be down for this and it would be nice to see him actually putting in an effort for once in a long while!!

I think its time for Vaughn to step up in a dramatic role

Vince is known as the fast talking wise ass. I think it is time he stepped up his game and showed the world he can really act. If Matthew McConaughey can go from Failure to Launch to True Detective, and nail it, I have faith Vince can do the same.

Clay Pigeons, if you haven't seen it, watch it. The man really does have some talent when tries, he has some deep darkness to him, I can see this all day...

Really? I thought you can just book him together with Owen Wilson?

First of all, way too many rumors out there for this show, and this one seems the most far fetched so far.

Second, yes, Vaughn had some good dramatic roles in his early years and he should get back to that. But Old School came out in 2003, so we have 10 years of him playing the same character over and over again. I highly doubt he has something on par with the original duo of True Detective in him.

Because How to Lose A Guy in 10 Days, Ghost of Girlfriends Past, Sahara, Fools Gold, We Are Marshall, The Wedding Planner and Two for the Money were great roles leading into True Detective and his comeback. Geez.

Jesus, his career needs this. I hope he still remembers how to act.

I for one would be happy to see Vaughn join the show. He really moved away from dramatic work after Swingers, and I think he'd be right at home in this part. He was great in Clay Pigeons, and could really revitalize his career by moving back into serious work if he took on this show. I really can't say how well it'll turn out, because we don't know who he'll be playing or in what capacity, but I'm cautiously optimistic that he'll do well with this part.

"Baby you are so money and don't even know it."

Vaughn has the dramatic chops and can do dark. This would be great casting if he were to sign on.

I'm getting sick of all this rumor-mongering about this show. It's about as bad as Star Wars Episode VII.

Yea you're right, 4 to 5 names being thrown around for potential leads in a follow up to a hugely successful show is absolutely ridiculous. How dare they try to lock in some serious talent to keep the show awesome, so annoying...

Vince Vaughn is actually a good actor but too bad that his comedy movies as of late didn't allow him to show that. This might turn out good.

I would be very pleased if this turns out to be true. Vaughn taking this role would make an already fascinating show even more interesting.

Clay Pigeons

I believe that VV is a decent actor, and does have a serious, brooding, side to his acting talents. A movie I would recommend to anyone, is his roll in Clay Pigeons with Joquan Phoneix....excellent.
