It looks like the rumors were true: Colin Farrell has confirmed that he'll star in the second season of True Detective. In an interview with the Irish newspaper The Sunday World, he said, "I’m so excited ... I know it will be eight episodes and take around four or five months to shoot. I know very little about it, but we’re shooting in the environs of Los Angeles which is great. It means I get to stay at home and see the kids." The paper reports that the plot will center on a "bloody murder of a corrupt city businessman found dead the night before a major transportation deal" with "three police officials from different cities" trying to solve it. As for who else will be joining him? Considering that everyone from Elisabeth Moss to Jessica Biel has been thrown into the rumor mill, it's safe to say that we'll just know when we know.
