Jessica Chastain Wanted for 'True Detective' Season 2


Jessica Chastain


The 'Zero Dark Thirty' star is reportedly offered a lead role in the new installment of the HBO anthology series.

Jessica Chastain could step into Matthew McConaughey's shoes on "True Detective" season 2. Series creator Nic Pizzolatto has been rumored seeking a female-driven cast for the upcoming installment of the crime drama series and now Nerdist reports that the Academy Award-nominated actress has been offered the lead role.

The site further claims that Chastain, who rose to prominent through her role in Kathryn Bigelow's "Zero Dark Thirty (2012)", has yet to accept the offer and her representatives declined to comment on the story.

Should the report be true and Chastain say "yes," this will be her first major TV role. The 37-year-old beauty had had guest roles on several shows, including "ER" and "Veronica Mars", before making her feature film debut in 2008's independent movie "Jolene". She will next grace the big screen with Christopher Nolan's "Interstellar", which also stars Matthew McConaughey, Anne Hathaway and Matt Damon among others.

"True Detective", which also starred Woody Harrelson, became a hit when the first season aired earlier this year on HBO. The cable channel has not greenlit the second season, but Pizzolatto already worked on the story.

"I am still fleshing it out," he said in March, before further sharing, "The basic idea: Hard women, bad men, and the secret occult history of the U.S. transportation system. I was well on my way in the writing but there's been a lot noise and work around the end of the first season that got in the way."
