Vince Vaughn in talks to join season 2 of ‘True Detective’

Buffalo Grove native and Lake Forest High School graduate Vince Vaughn is in talks to join the cast of the HBO hit television show “True Detective” for its second season. According to Deadline Hollywood:

“There are no formal negotiations yet, but I hear that Vince Vaughn is looking very good to join the second season of Nic Pizzolatto’s drama True Detective. While Vaughn had been rumored for the HBO series for a while, I hear he only recently had been approached. Things are progressing quickly, and everyone is hopeful that a deal can be made. I hear Pizzolatto wrote the character with Vaughn in mind, his second time writing for the Wedding Crashers star. Last fall, Pizzolatto was wrapping True Detective – then envisioned as a limited series — when he was tapped by Universal and Vaughn and Victoria Vaughn’s studio-based Wild West Picture Show banner to write a script for a feature reboot of The Rockford Files with Vince Vaughn to star as the iconic private eye. Soon thereafter, True Detective launched, hitting the zeitgeist and spawning a franchise. Pizzolatto got busy with the show, and Rockford Files moved on with another writer, but Pizzolatto and Vaughn had developed a relationship, and I hear that led to the writer penning a role on the second season of HBO drama with the actor in mind.”
