In season one of the HBO drama, McConaughey played Louisiana homicide detective Rust Cohle. The cast also included Woody Harrelson, Michelle Monaghan, and Michael Potts.
During a recent radio interview, the actor said he misses Rust Cohle and would return if asked:
Yeah, I would. I miss Rust Cohle, man. I miss watching him on Sunday nights. I miss watching True Detective on Sunday nights. I was a happy man while we made that for six months, because I was on my own island.”
It would have to be the right context, the right way. That thing, when I read it, I knew in 20 minutes. I was like, ‘If I can play this guy, Rustin Cohle, I’m in.'”
However, that return may never happen as HBO chief Casey Bloys recently said a third season of True Detective is unlikely after the much-panned second season.
What do you think? Are you a fan of True Detective? Would you like to see McConaughey return to the HBO series?
