True Detective Season 2 Spoilers: Matthew McConaughey Knows Who Has Been Cast for Roles; Latest Filming Details

True Detective season 2, one of the more anticipated upcoming seasons, has been surrounded by numerous casting rumors with still no official word on who’s got the gigs.

But Matthew McConaughey has revealed that he knows who has been cast.

“I know who’s on Season 2, but I’m not going to tell you,” he said on the Emmy Awards red carpet, according to USA Today.

The latest rumors, via Deadline, Variety, and The Wrap, were that Colin Farrell, Taylor Kitsch, and Garrett Hedlund are close to finalizing contracts as the leads.

Vince Vaughn and Elisabeth Moss are also reportedly set to have big roles.

Vaughn is in talks to play Frank Semyon, a former thug-turned-businessman who’s working with a local mayor and his political cohorts to spearhead the construction of a high-speed railway system that links Southern California to Northern California in order to reap financial gains from federal grants and land purchases, the website reported.

Farrell would play Ray Velcoro, a detective damaged by years of turmoil both professionally and personally.

Kitsch would play 28-year-old military veteran Paul Woodrugh.

HBO hasn’t commented on any of the rumors–and there have been a ton–about season 2 so far.

An official announcement should come out soon regarding the casting.

It has been revealed that season 2 will begin filming in September, reported The Hollywood Reporter.

Company CEO Michael Lombardo told the audience at the Edinburgh TV Festival that the season should be ready to air in the summer of 2015.
