'True Detective' Season 2 Officially Has Its Lead

This guy's career is anything but a flat circle.

Conclude your meme games, people – #TrueDetectiveSeason2 has its new lead: Colin Farrell!

The actor confirmed that he'll be starring in the second season of the hit HBO series while speaking with the Sunday World. “I’m doing the second series," he said. "I’m so excited.”

This culminates a months-long whirlwind of cast rumors, which most recently included Rosario Dawson and Jessica Biel – though it's possible they're in the running as his co-partners. Because what is a true detective if not a two-way battering ram for writer Nic Pizzolatto's mind-bending banter?

Farrell and the rest of his yet-to-be-announced cast will be true detecting all up in your eyeballs next summer. Time may be a flat circle, but production schedules are Carcosa-esque tangles.
