The Boston Globe released a very interesting article on the filming of “Spotlight” which also includes essays written by Walter V. Robinson, Michael Rezendes and Sacha Pfeiffer who will be portrayed by Michael Keaton, Mark Ruffalo and Rachel. We have added the new on set still in our gallery. Pfeiffer’s essay on working with Rachel has been added in our press archive. “Spotlight” wrapped up filming earlier this month and is expected to be released in 2015.

‘Rachel [McAdams] has asked me how long I kept my fingernails. What size Post-it Notes I preferred.’
By Sacha Pfeiffer | Globe Staff

During dinner at a downtown Boston restaurant, on an evening that was already feeling surreal — Rachel McAdams by my side, offering tastes of her branzino, Mark Ruffalo across from me, telling rip-roaring stories about his bartending days — Rachel leaned over and gestured to my right hand.

“You’re wearing a ring you didn’t mention,” she whispered, with a tinge of surprise. I followed her glance to a small gold band on my pinky finger, a long-ago gift from a dear friend. Rachel was right: Weeks earlier, when she’d asked me what jewelry I wore in 2001, I’d forgotten about that tiny ring. And because she is trying to look, act, and even think like I did 13 years ago to play me in the upcoming “Spotlight” movie, the omission caught her eye.

HBO finally confirmed Rachel joining the “True Detective” season two cast alongside Taylor Kitsch, Kelly Reilly, Colin Farrell, & Vince Vaughn yesterday. Be sure to check out our previous post in case you missed it. It’s such an anticipated project after the critical and commercial success of the first season so there have been many reports about the second season. We already made a casting update news round-up a few days ago but now that Rachel is confirmed we also wanted to round up reports with – possible – details about season 2. Keep in mind that the reports might contain spoilers about the plot.

The Story
HBO’s official logline for the second season is: Three police officers and a career criminal must navigate a web of conspiracy in the aftermath of a murder. The three police officers will be played by Colin Farrell as Ray Velcoro, Taylor Kitsch as Paul Woodrugh, and Rachel as Ani Bezzerides. Vince Vaughn will play the criminal Frank Semyon. Deadline reported back in August that season 2 “will kick off with a murder, and it might involve corruption in the California transportation system, possibly linked to a proposed high-speed train”. They also reported that the second season is expected to have 4 leads, three of them said to be cops/detectives/government workers and one the villain.

Lindsey   November 22nd, 2014   News & Rumors, True Detective 2 Comments

The news of Rachel being “frontrunner” for the female lead in “True Detective” was first reported back in September. The most recent report came from Variety who reported Rachel was close to locking down a lead role. If you follow our twitter account you have noticed we have reported an re-tweeted the latest rumors on the casting and series these last few weeks.

HBO has only confirmed Colin Farrell and Vince Vaughn casting so far, because it’s such an anticipated project many more rumors have been circling around. We will try to round them up in this post. We also recommend heading over to Indiewire who compiled their own round-up post.

The Casting
Taylor Kitsch, who will reportedly play one of the detectives, confirmed to AdWeek himself that he is part of the second season of the series. HBO still hasn’t confirm his casting. The Wrap reported a few weeks ago that Michael Irby, Kelly Reilly, Abigail Spencer and Leven Rambin joined the cast in supporting and recurring roles. Irby will play Elvis Ilinca, Rachel’s character’s partner at the police department. Deadline reported the first table read was held on October 31, and Rachel was spotted in LA the same day.

Deadline has reported several recurring cast additions this last week. They are reporting that Lolita Davidovich, James Frain, Adria Arjona, Michael Hyatt, Yara Martinez, Christian Campbell, and Riley Smith joined the casting in recurring roles. You can click on their names to read the original reports. Smith will play Rachel’s character’s boyfriend Steve Mercier, who is a “a boyish Sheriff’s deputy”.
