First came word of Brad Pitt, now his “Tree of Life” co-star Jessica Chastain has been linked to one of the two lead roles in HBO’s upcoming second season of “True Detective”
The Nerdist revealed the casting rumor, claiming show creator Nic Pizzolatto is curious about having a more female-driven show for this second outing and has reached out to Chastain.
Chastain’s reps have declined to comment at this time, though the site claims she has yet to accept.
Update: That was fast. E! Online has since been able to get in touch with both HBO and Chastain’s reps, both of which have denied the report.
