‘True Detective’ fans cast the ultimate lead actor matchups on Twitter
This audience knows what it wants.
With HBO’s critically acclaimed True Detective on track for renewal as an anthology series, with a different story, setting, and cast each season, every serious actor in Hollywood is doubtless angling for a moody role. And while no contract has been signed, nor any script written, Twitter has lost no time in pumping out brilliant recommendations for new co-leads.
We have every reason to believe that all of the duos suggested here would excel in a tense, slow-burning crime miniseries on premium cable. Especially if half of that duo is Drake.

Frankly, the only problem with casting choices like these is that the characters will be more interesting than the mystery.
