This Week in True Detective: Halloween Edition


This Week in True Detective is a feature that aims to bring you the best True Detective happenings of the week. This could include breaking news, popular articles, or anything else that people found interesting or may have missed.

This Week in True Detective isn’t really about Halloween all that much. Kind of a let down, right? Not to say that Halloween didn’t come up in a couple of news items this week. We also revised the Fargo and True Detective comparisons, and found out that Matthew McConaughey turned down a major money making movie making machine. Let’s get to it.

To start things off strong, we saw an excellent parody of True Detective — specifically season two — from TBS’s new show, Angie Tribeca. Fans of Rashida Jones are highly encouraged to check it out. Also in awesome True Detective related videos, a fan combined deep-sea footage with a haunting soundtrack and a voiceover from Rust Cohle. True us, it works.

Speaking of Matthew McConaughey, we learned that he’ll be hosting SNL in November. Expecting some True Detective related jokes and hopefully a skit. McConaughey also passed, once again, on the Marvel Cinematic Universe. It will be some time before we see McConaughey in a superhero movie.

Vince Vaughn will be starring in a comedy cowritten by Seth Rogen, leading us tow wonder whether or not we’ll be juggling both drama and comedy going forward. Speaking of Halloween (finally) Rolling Stone ranked True Detective as one of the best horror shows of all time. Never thought of True Detective as a horror? You’re not the only one.

In totally fun and delightful news, Ian McKellen said that he would be on True Detective is the script was good. It’s also worth mentioning that he’s never watched the show before — that’s just how chill of a guy he is. Finally, Fargo’s Brad Garrett said that he doesn’t see much to compare between Fargo and True Detective.

Next: Ian McKellen would totally be on True Detective.

It’s Halloween, so if you’re dressing up as a True Detective character or know someone who is, share it with us! We want to see some great costumes this year. As always, we’re always up for chatting on Facebook or Twitter.
