How great is Rachel McAdams? I just had to start out by saying that because I think she’s fantastic and pretty underrated (even though, you know, not really since she gets plenty of work). I don’t really know why I like her, but I do. Anyway, while she’s mostly spent her time on the big screen, next up we’ll be seeing her as one of the stars of True Detective Season 2. Vince Vaughn is in it as well, as is Colin Farrell, and it actually looks pretty good. Certainly seems like it won’t be as slow as the first season, and I’ll totally watch it.
Rachel is pumped to be playing the role of hard ass officer Ari Bezzerides and shared her excitement in the new issue of Marie Claire:
“I love that she’s not the girlfriend or the wife. She doesn’t really care what everyone thinks; she feels no responsibility for other people’s feelings. She’s not trying to be charming, which isn’t always the case with a leading lady. There’s [usually] sort of a responsibility to be a little bit likeable… Not that you want to be a horrendous character, just a little more human.”
Sounds good to me! The preview for Season 2 of True Detective is below, so tell me: Did you watch Season 1 and will you watch this one?
