    Wonderful news. I’m glad they didn’t go with someone so much younger than Colin. This is going to be wildly entertaining.

    Vince can act. I think this will be where we see him really act. Forget the rom-com stuff and nonsense. We know Colin can act.

    I could not be happier with this news.

    A Cool Dry Place will forever be my favorite Vince film. But he got my attention in Psycho and Swingers.

    Hm… I’m not sure about Vince Vaughn…

  • Lori

    One of the great things about the first season was that there was no hype surrounding it before hand. this time out we’re finding stuff out a head a time and I think that will ruin things. Also Cary Fukunaga is not directing this time………and he did such a great job last time.

    I agree with Lori — I wish there was more mystery surrounding Season 2.
    Although I do mind the casting of Farrell and Vaughn, I would have preferred others. Vaughn is capable of doing serious roles. He was excellent in Clay Pigeons.

  • taliah

    yes to colin farrell because he is a great actor – he lost his way a bit when he was doing all those big hollywood blockbusters but since then has been picking really interesting roles (in bruges, seven psychopaths etc).

    i’m more reluctant about vince vaughn – he hasn’t made a decent film in nearly two decades. i’m worried that they have just as the woody harrelson character because they are both have that laid back charm.

    VV is a great choice, much better than the rumored Elizabeth Moss or Rachel McAdams. This was good casting.

  • allison

    The director is going to have his/her hand full because both these guys love to overact.

  • ugh

    Really groundbreaking choices, HBO! Two white dudes replacing two white dudes!! Idris Elba and Jessica Chastain for season 3 plz.

    @allison:
    The same could be said for the first two too. But keep in mind this new season takes place in Hollywood so we’ll see some overacting, but doubt it’ll be from these two but the creeps they investigate.
