But season two won’t feature Rust Cohle, so we turn to the fans now to remember the role that Matthew McConaughey was constantly praised for but never won. One fan took it upon himself to contact us on Twitter to show off his creation.

If you’d like to submit your own True Detective fan creation, feel free to contact us here, on Facebook, or Twitter @Trudetective.
