VIDEO: Matthew McConaughey on 'True Detective' Season Three: 'I Wouldn’t Hesitate for a Second'
Good news for True Detective fans – Matthew McConaughey says he’s totally down to film season three!
The 47-year-old actor recently shared his thoughts on returning as Rust Cohle for the hit HBO crime series during his appearance on The Rich Eisen Show.
“You essentially said you wanted to play Rust Cohle when you saw the script,” the host began. “You were originally going to go for the part of Marty (Woody Harrelson’s character) and then you were like, ‘This guy Rustin Cohle really speaks to me’.”
“Can’t wait to hear what comes out of his mouth,” Matthew agreed.
When Rich asked Matthew about any season three updates, the actor said, “I hear that all the time now. ‘You said you were going to do season three. When is it coming?’”
Matthew revealed that the “ball’s not advanced at all. I’ve talked to the creator Nic Pizzolatto, who’s taking a little break from it,” before adding, “If that thing was written well and it came up again, I wouldn’t hesitate for a second. Oh, I’m open to it for sure.”
