Rachel McAdams has reportedly been offered a lead role in True Detective season 2

Another True Detective has reportedly entered the fold. Variety reports that HBO has formally offered one of the lead roles in True Detective's second season to Rachel McAdams. McAdams has long been rumored as one of the top choices for the role, on a short list that also included actresses like Elisabeth Moss, Malin Ackerman, and Jessica Biel.

If she accepts, McAdams will join a cast that includes Colin Farrell and onetime Wedding Crashers co-star Vince Vaughn. HBO hasn't formally described the role she'd be taking, but previous leaks about the story for True Detective's second season described the female protagonist as "Ani Bezzrides, a tough, no-nonsense Monterey sheriff whose troubled upbringing has driven her to gambling and alcohol."
