Like You, Matthew McConaughey Misses His Season of True Detective — So Much That He and Nic Pizzolatto Have Talked About Doing More


If Matthew McConaughey's Lincoln ads have proven nothing else, they've shown that McConaughey is a dangerous man, a capricious man, the kind of man who would risk the acclaim of a successful project just for the kicks of doing it again. That's right: Matthew McConaughey is willing to make more True Detective. The Emmy nominee revealed as much on The Rich Eisen Show, admitting that, like the rest of us, "I miss Rust Cohle, man. I miss watching him on Sunday nights." Asked if he would consider making more of the seemingly finite story, McConaughey said, "Yeah, I would." And his was not just the hypothetical, compliant "I would" borne to satiate industry clamor. McConaughey says that he and True Detective creator Nic Pizzolatto have actually discussed the possibility, although McConaughey stipulates: "It would have to be the right context, the right way." Given the near-universal drubbing season two received, the duo's caution is perhaps warranted, but what was Rust Cohle's story if not a meditation in walking back into the fire after getting burned? Come on, McConaughey. We'll call Woody Harrelson, you get that piece of straw Rust called a mustache growing again.
