Rachel McAdams Close to Booking 'True Detective' Season Two Role (Report)

Rachel McAdams has reportedly all but locked down the female leading role in the upcoming second season of True Detective, Variety reports.

The 35-year-old actress has been reported as the frontrunner for weeks with actresses such as Jessica Biel and Malin Akerman also being considered.

It was just announced by HBO that Colin Farrell and Vince Vaughn would be starring in the second season of the show, with Taylor Kitsch expected to join the cast as well.

    So it’s going to be an all white cast again? Oh Hollywood..

  • Nikki

    She looks pretty. She was in Sherlock Holmes so why not

  • Gawd No!

    She is a HORRIBLE actress. Not a good fit for a show of this calibre.

  • lah

    Yes. Hope she plays it gritty and tough. Would be great to see her as something other than a pretty, delicate damsel.

  • lori

    I was hoping for Rosario Dawson for a little diversity. But Rachel is good and at least its not Jessica Biel.

  • Srsly?

    When terrible D-list actresses such as Jessica Biel and Malin Akerman are being considered, you already know the 2nd season will never live up to fans high expectations for this show.
    C’mon HBO, anyone but these two dull as dishwater hacks would be a massive upgrade at this point.

  • Missy

    Rachel did a great job playing a soldier in a little-seen movie called The Lucky Ones. I’m sure she’ll make a great detective. Nice to see her taking on gritter roles.

  • cindy

    It’s better than Jessica Biel. Rachel Mcadams way better pick than others on the list for the running of it.

  • wim

    she will be great in this!

  • Claire

    Ohh no! She is a” terrible” !!!! Jessica Biel should be!

  • mi

    That would be fetch

  • Leni

    Awesome! Can Elizabeth Moss be in it too? Sometimes in workplaces, more than one woman can work somewhere. Also, I recommend anyone who isn’t white. Rosario Dawson happens to be a fine actress!

  • Louise Smith

    I am so very proud of Rachel McAdams! She is a beautiful, intelligent, talented, wonderful, and charming woman; inside and outside; and I love her very much!

    Good Luck, Rachel McAdams! I love you, Darling!

    How can anyone of you know if she’s a fit or not? We don’t know anything about her character. The only thing we know is that she might be a cop and that the character is female. Clearly not enough to judge whether she is a fit or not.


  • Too bad

    I was hoping that Rosario Dawson would get the part, too. She is also a beautiful actress with a solid on-screen presence. But then again, considering what those celebrities go through behind the scenes, someone may have done her a favor by not casting her.

  • Claire

    @amanda This is my opinion. And I feel sorry for you because you’re messing with the opinions of others
