Rachel McAdams And Taylor Kitch Are Reportedly Joining ‘True Detective’ Season Two

Sources say it's almost a done deal

This summer I finally, finally joined the rest of the dedicated TV watchers, and ordered HBO. I did this for one reason—to binge-watch True Detective, because I was sick of hearing about this greatest show on Earth, without any true knowledge of its amazingness. I watched the first episode way too late at night, and decided I was going to have to re-watch the next day. But then I got distracted by my newfound HBO glory, and ended up bingeing on Girls, Mildred Pierce, and those amazing Louis C.K. comedy specials. So yeah, I have some catching up to do, but I’m still excited about this show! And we have some new casting buzz for Season Two (we already know Colin Farrell and Vince Vaughn are on board), so click inside for more!

Hot for Teacher

Back in July we learned that singer/actress Courtney Love was added to the cast of Sons of Anarchy and earlier this month, we saw her at the Hollywood premiere event for the 7th and final season of SoA. Today we get to see Courtney doing actual work for the show. C. Love was spotted on the SoCal set of Sons of Anarchy this week filming her scenes for the show. As you may know, Courtney will play a school teacher on the show and in the gallery presented here, we get to see what Love looks like in character. I tossed in a photo of actress Katey Sagal, who was also spotted on set, as well because she just rules. Last night’s episode of SoA was insane! This season is so good already and we’re only 3 eps in. It would appear we have some time to wait before Courtney mades her debut on the show but she’s coming … she is deffo coming to SoA.

The Big Bad

Oh boy. For months now, we’ve been hearing about a creepy ass character named Twisty the Clown who will be the big bad villain in the upcoming season of American Horror Story: Freak Show … and today, we get to see what Twisty looks like.
