True Detective Season 2 Fantasy Casting

Wait wait wait! Even if you didn't watch True Detective Season 1, you can definitely play this game! Because True Detective is a show about investigating people, as they investigate cases, and each season will be independent of the other, so you don't have to have watched to play along.

Anyway, the TD showrunner Nick Pizzolatto hinted that next season might include one or more female detectives, so let the fantasy casting commence!

Ellen Page and Kate Mara are lobbying for the parts of "two tiny detectives," and I could get on board with that. Although, if I had my way:

screen cap of a tweet authored by me reading: 'If @HBO wanted to win everything forever, it would cast Tyne Daly and Sharon Gless in season 2 of True Detective.'

Besides Cagney and Lacey, my ultimate fantasy casting for Season 2 is Melora Walters and Regina King. I mean, haven't casting directors ever watched Magnolia? Why isn't Melora Walters in everything?!

Your turn!
