Hollywood report Zero Dark Thirty actress, and all around hottie, Jessica Chastain has been offered a lead role in the second season of HBO's brilliant True Detective.
Naturally, the award winning actress's peeps deny any involvement in the acclaimed series, but this is nothing new. A deal is often denied until the ink is dry and the cash is in the account.
For us True Detective fans, this is awesome news. The first season, which starred Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson, was a chilling blend of police drama, horror and existentialism. In my mind, it's the best TV show since Millennium, which remains my all-time favourite. The actors gave the performances of their careers, and the storytelling was dark and first rate.
Chastain's involvement hints the quality, at least in front of the camera, will continue. And word out of HBO all along has suggested the second season will focus on female detectives.
What say you, Basementites? You keen to have the lovely and talented red head on True Detective?
