The first season of the wildly popular HBO series, True Detective, was so well received and many fans seemed surprised to learn that stars Woody Harrelson and Matthew McConaughey would not be returning for a Season 2. However, plenty of show enthusiasts also spoke out about desiring to see woman portrayed in a more positive light on the series, and perhaps even in the starring spots. Well, two new Hollywood actresses have been added to the seemingly ever-growing list of potential female leads for the show.
According to a recent report, Transcendence actress Kate Mara and Juno star Ellen Page just might form True Detective's newest sleuth duo. Reportedly, there is much speculation about these Hollywood A-listers filling the vacancies which Harrelson and McConaughey left for the taking.
Additionally, while she plays Spider-Man's love interest in the movie, and is Andrew Garfield's real-life leading lady, actress Emma Stone has herself expressed an interest in signing on for the somewhat male-driven show. "I would do True Detective with Kristen Wiig in a heartbeat," exclaimed Stone in a recent interview.
However, in case two female lead detectives would be too much estrogen for the show, there is always Brad Pitt's name floating around as a potential Season 2 star. What's more, HBO has yet to announce an official premiere date for the series, but reportedly it is highly likely that the second season will premiere in January 2015, since Season 1 debuted at the very beginning of the year.
