Matthew McConaughey ain’t dismissing the idea of a return to HBO’s crime-anthology series “True Detective” which is currently on hiatus with plans for a third season having yet to be announced by creator Nic Pizzolatto.
Popping up on The Rich Eisen Show late last week, McConaughey talked about his role as Detective Rustin ‘Rust’ Cohle in the series and was asked if he would be interested in revisiting the character.
The host asked: “Last time you were on the show, Matthew … I asked you at the time, ‘well, what about maybe doing it again?’ And you said, ‘that’s a possibility.’ Has that ball been advanced any further down the field since we last spoke?”.
McCoanughey responded: “That conversation you and I had caught wings because I hear that all the time now. That ball’s not advanced at all. I’ve talked to the creator Nic Pizzolatto, who’s taking a little break from it. But again, if that thing was written well and it came up again, I wouldn’t hesitate for a second.”
“True Detective” hasn’t been officially cancelled or renewed and Pizzolatto hasn’t set up another TV gig as yet. He did work on the script for “The Magnificent Seven” remake and also penned the crime thriller “Galveston”.
