True Detective Primer: The Darkest Roles from Colin Farrell, Rachel McAdams, and Vince Vaughn

Earlier this week HBO finally confirmed that both Colin Farrell and Vince Vaughn had signed on for the second season of True Detective. And if sources are correct, both men will be joined by Rachel McAdams and Taylor Kitsch, who will round out the series’ four lead roles. The casting news is sure to draw excitement and ire among fans as debate unfolds about whether or not each actor is the right choice.

While it remains to be seen just how each actor does in the series, we rounded up their best roles that serve as a primer to the crime drama.

Most mans of Vince Vaughn know him for his hilarious comedies, such as Wedding Crashers and Dodgeball: A True Underdog Story, but there was a time when the actor explored a more serious side of things. In 2000’s The Cell, Vaughn goes inside the mind of a serial killer (literally) to find the location of his final victim before its too late.
