Jessica Chastain Offered Lead Role in True Detective Season Two
Posted by Jeremy Thomas on 05.21.2014

True Detective raised quite a few eyebrows during early development when it cast big-name stars Woody Harrelsen and Matthew McConaughey in the lead roles of its first season, though that was mitigated by the fact that they were only doing a single season of the anthology series. As it turned out, it was a decision that paid off huge both for the actors--who earned some of the highest acclaim of their careers--and the show. HBO isn't scaling back for the second season either, as they've reportedly lined up another Oscar nominee for the sophomore storyline.

According to Nerdist, Jessica Chastain (Zero Dark Thirty, Mama, The Tree of Life) has been offered a lead role in the second season, which will contain all new characters and a new mystery. The specifics of the role have yet to be confirmed, as well as whether Chastain has accepted.

A previous and extremely-unconfirmed rumor from the Mirror had Brad Pitt (who starred with Chastain in Tree of Life) offered a lead role as well. No confirmation has been reached there, either, and Chastain's reps refused to comment.
