As the third season of True Detective continues to develop, the series has moved to add Scoot McNairy to its ranks.
Courtesy of Deadline, McNairy will be playing a father who’s on the receiving end of a tragic loss that ultimately sees him become entwined with two police detectives over a decade. McNairy is likely best known to genre fans for the likes of Monsters, Frank, Argo, Godless and for his memorable turn in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.
The early word on this new season reads:
Season 3 tells the story of a macabre crime in the heart of the Ozarks, and a mystery that deepends over decades and plays out in three separate time periods.
Already on board for this next season of True Detective are Mahershala Ali, Carmen Ejogo, and Stephen Dorff. Nic Pizzolatto is back as showrunner and will direct along with Jeremy Saulnier.
