According to Nerdist, Jessica Chastain has been offered the lead role in season two of True Detective, but has yet to accept, so just assume she’s making sure her character says awesome shit like, “A man’s game costs a man’s price,” and/or makes bitching beer can figures:
Recent rumors have stated series creator Nic Pizzolatto was seeking a female-driven cast for Season 2 of the hit HBO series, and now today, Nerdist has learned exclusively one of the names that may be on the bill in 2015: Jessica Chastain.
According to sources, the Zero Dark Thirty actress has been offered a leading role in the second season but has yet to accept. As for official confirmation, we reached out to representatives for Chastain, who have declined to comment at this time.
I’m entirely on board with this because if True Detective does one thing exactly right, it’s casting. Not to mention Jessica Chastain is a supernaturally hot redhead with incredible breasts, and everyone knows those are the greatest gift God ever gave the world. The greatest gift. *side-eyes Jesus*
