Matthew McConaughey, in the past several years, has taken to the streets rehabilitating his Hollywood image as an actor who is a force to be reckoned with. His roles in The Lincoln Lawyer, Bernie, Killer Joe, Magic Mike, Mud, and most recently Dallas Buyers Club have put back in the discussion of “most talented actor in the business”. Next he’ll be seen in HBO’s new drama series True Detective opposite Woody Harrelson.
True Detective stars McConaughey and Harrelson as two detectives in Louisiana looking for a serial killer who’s been on the loose for 17 years. From the show’s first trailer the series looks like it’s the next great show to grace television. McConaughey teaming up with HBO is a little out of the ordinary considering the rehabilitation he’s been through with his image, but if the trailer is to be believed, we’re in for a treat.
