Finally! After months and months of speculation upon rumor, 'True Detective' season 2 has finally begun announcing its official cast leads. Colin Farrell and Vince Vaughn have been confirmed, along with 'Fast and Furious' director Justin Lin, but who else can we expect to join the HBO drama, and what new plot details have emerged?
Amid the myriad of speculation and dead horse meme-bashing, yesterday saw HBO’s ‘True Detective’ season 2 rumor mill circling Vince Vaughn as its latest claim, adding fuel to the fire of reported series stars Colin Farrell and Taylor Kitsch. Now, with an irritatingly endless wall of silence rivaling ‘Star Wars 7,’ HBO is leveled with yet more ‘True Detective’ casting talks from the likes of ‘Mad Men’ maven Elisabeth Moss, and genre favorite Michelle Forbes, among a treasure trove of new casting details.
Casting for HBO's 'True Detective' season 2 was a joke long before it became an actual joke, and the latest A-list name attached to the project is no laughing matter.

To be a heart-on-your-sleeve weepie in 2013, you've got to have some far-fetched gimmick. 'About Time' has time travel, 'Safe Haven' had ghosts and 'Delivery Man' has Vince Vaughn as an anonymous sperm donor hunted down by hundreds of his young-adult offspring. The mechanics of the plot are so ludicrous that audiences should be forgiven for shouting, “No, sorry, it wouldn't work that way!” back at
A full-length 'Delivery Man' trailer has debuted, and only time will tell if it's better than the Google advertisement that was Vince Vaughn's last movie, 'The Internship.' But if we're going by first impressions, the new flick looks like it'll be the far superior effort.
The term "product placement" feels insufficient to describe the role of Google in 'The Internship.' This is not so much product placement in a movie as movie placement in a product. For two hours, viewers are treated to a series of bright, high-energy sales pitches for the San Francisco search engine and its vast array of products and services -- Google Play, Google Drive, Google Helplin
