Jimmy Kimmel and Seth Rogen offer a sneak peek at ‘True Detective’ season 2
It’s the Lone Star-fueled bromance we all want.
Jimmy Kimmel has relocated his show to Austin for SXSW, and the first episode of a weeklong stint debuted last night. Keeping things as topical as possible, Kimmel and Seth Rogen tackled a recently trending hashtag, and the end of the HBO drama True Detective. But they set it in Austin. And recast themselves as Woody Harrelson and Matthew McConaughey.
In its short lifespan, True Detective’s already been parodied several times, specifically McConaughey’s rambling, winding monologues. Rogen does his part to imbue his character with that same stoner sensibility, but bonus points for the impromptu breakdown into a Cyndi Lauper song. We also get some insight into the more romantic elements of the Harrelson-McConaughey dynamic, specifically during the show’s chapter-closing fight scene between the two. And they make great use of Austin’s favorite beer, Lone Star.
