According to one source who spoke with E! News, Vaughn is in "preliminary discussions" to play one of four lead roles, with Colin Farrell and Taylor Kitsch also thought to be in talks. Casting rumors for True Detective season two have been rife since the season one finale. Jessica Chastain and Brad Pitt were reportedly attached to the project though it appears neither will now appear.

HBO president Michael Lombardo told reporters at the 2014 Summer TCA Press Tour that casting announcements would come any day - meaning that, at this late stage, reports of Vaughn joining the cast are probably accurate.

"The two scripts we have are, I hate to jinx it, but are more exciting than the first season," Lombardo said. "[Creator Nic Pizzolatto has] blown us away with the first two episodes."

Though most successful with his comedies, Vaughn recently finished shooting Peter Billingsley's crime drama Term Life, about a guy wanted by various hit men who must stay alive long enough for his life insurance policy to kick in and pay out his estranged daughter. The movie also stars Hailee Steinfeld and Jon Favreau and is based on the Nick Thornborrow's graphic novel.
