The Trailer For “True Detective” Season 2 Is Full Of Mustaches And Mystery
Here’s another thing for your summer prestige television dance card: the trailer for the hotly-anticipated second season of “True Detective” is here, in all its enigmatic glory. It’s light on plot and heavy on questionable facial hair and bolo ties, but here’s what we got. Rachel McAdams is a cop with a sensible haircut. Colin Farrell is also a cop, with the aforementioned fondness for bolo ties and facial hair. Taylor Kistch no longer looks like “Friday Night Lights”‘ Tim Riggins, but he’s in there too, skulking around with his hot face. And Vince Vaughn is doing what he does best, which is being the kind of douchebag you don’t want to be in a meeting with. Here’s an official plot synopsis:
A bizarre murder brings together three law-enforcement officers and a career criminal, each of whom must navigate a web of conspiracy and betrayal in the scorched landscapes of California. Colin Farrell is Ray Velcoro, a compromised detective in the all-industrial City of Vinci, LA County. Vince Vaughn plays Frank Semyon, a criminal and entrepreneur in danger of losing his life’s work, while his wife and closest ally (Kelly Reilly), struggles with his choices and her own. Rachel McAdams is Ani Bezzerides, a Ventura County Sheriff’s detective often at odds with the system she serves, while Taylor Kitsch plays Paul Woodrugh, a war veteran and motorcycle cop for the California Highway Patrol who discovers a crime scene which triggers an investigation involving three law enforcement groups, multiple criminal collusions, and billions of dollars.
Ready your bodies for the premiere, which is June 21st on HBO. [h/t Buzzfeed]
