The cast of HBO's latest runaway hit is beginning to take shape.
Big news, True Detective fans! The latest cast announcement from HBO’s runaway hit is that Colin Farrell will join the lineup starting next season. Farrell made the announcement himself, saying he was “so excited” about the role in an exclusive for Sunday World, an Irish newspaper.
Meet your new True Detective star.
For the second season, Farrell will find himself in the midst of a whole new plot alongside an entirely different cast.

Watch the delightfully funny trailer below
With one darkly comic Irish film already receiving rave reviews, Brendan Gleeson is starring in a lightly comic Canadian one, which, by the looks of the trailer, will have exactly the same effect. Taylor Kitsch also stars in ‘The Grand Seduction’, which has a brand new trailer below.
French takes the doctor fishing 'The Grand Seduction'
The film sees Murray French (Gleeson) rally the troops of Tickle Cove, a picturesque harbour town, to convince a visiting doctor to stay permanently so the local factor can keep its business contract alive and provide the locals with work. But with such a motley and lazy crew, he’s got his work cut out.
The Afghanistan-based war drama starring Mark Wahlberg has impressed some, but it might not have made the mark for widespread success
Lone Survivor is director Peter Berg's attempt at turning former Navy SEAL Marcus Luttrell's harrowing tale of survival inside enemy territory into a major motion picture, one that initially looked as though it had a very serious claim for Oscar recognition come March. With the film due for a wide release at the end of January, there were hopes that the new Hurt Locker or Argo had arrived, but in the first round of reviews critics have't been left as blown away as initially hoped.
Starring Mark Wahlberg alongside Taylor Kitsch, Emile Hirsch and Ben Foster, the film recalls the botched 2005 covert mission to neutralised an area in the Hindu Kush region of Afghanistan that had fallen under the rule of a high-ranking Taliban official. Adapted from the real, best-selling account from Luttrell, played by Wahlberg in the film, the film has so far split movie critics between loving and loathing the it and ultimately its once clear-looking chances of potential Oscar recognition are looking less and less likely.
Film contenders jostle for position after the holiday break, while the internet buzzes with casting rumours for Batman vs Superman and 4 vs X. And trailers stir up anticipation for Stallone action, Costner drama and Rogen comedy...
Things always go quiet in the film industry over the holidays as everyone takes one last break before the full onslaught of awards season campaigning. Nominations for both Oscars and Baftas come in the next two weeks, and there's also action for the influential writers, directors, producers and actors guilds.
Awards-worthy movies expanding into cinemas this weekend include Mark Wahlberg's Lone Survivor, Spike Jonze's Her, the biopic Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom and the Cambodia documentary The Missing Picture. All have picked up attention from critics groups over the past month and are looking to catch the eye of Oscar voters.

"Lone Survivor" is getting positive nods in early reviews, but for its stars, the most important part was staying true to the story.
Lone Survivor, starring Taylor Kitsch and Mark Wahlberg, tells the story of Medal of Honor recipient Lt. Michael Murphy, who in 2005 led a four-man Navy SEAL team on a surveillance mission in a remote mountainous region in Afghanistan’s Kunar Province. Their mission, code-named Operation Red Wings, was compromised when three unarmed goat herders, including a young teen, stumbled on their location. Murphy and his fellow SEALS - Matthew (Axe) Axelson (Ben Foster) and Danny Dietz (Emile Hirsch) had to choose between killing the innocent civilians or letting them go and possibly compromising the mission. Choosing the latter meant that the team was soon discovered and three of the four were killed by a much larger enemy force.
Kitsch faced a challenge with the role of Lt. Michael Murphy.
Both Kitsch and Wahlberg have expressed in interviews their commitment to keeping the film as honest and close to the experiences of real servicemen and women as possible. Even so, Kitsch was reportedly extremely nervous when he had to face his most important critic – Michael Murphy’s father, Daniel. Since working on Lone Survivor, Kitsch has stayed close to the Murphys, hosting a special screening for family and friends two weeks ago at the Regal Cinemas Ronkonkoma Stadium 9, then hoisting beers and trading stories afterward with the real “Murph’s” childhood friends.
'Lone Survivor' has thrown its hat into the ring for the Oscars 2013.
While all the talk so far has centered on 12 Years a Slave, Gravity and Captain Phillips, a new and very serious contender for Best Picture at the Oscars has emerged in the form of Peter Berg's Lone Survivor. Based on the war memoir by ex-Navy SEAL Marcus Luttrell, the movie starring Mark Wahlberg, Taylor Kitsch and Emile Hirsch is an intense visualization of a botched SEALs raid in Afghanistan.

Berg reportedly underwent SEALs initiation in preparation for the film and - according to the Hollywood Reporter's review- the rigorous training on display is "infectious" early in the film. These guys are the most physically fit, best armed guys in the army with ultra-survival skills. They do let each other down.

Marcus Luttrell is a member of Navy SEAL Team 10 during a military mission dubbed Operation Red Wings. He and three other SEALs, team leader Lieutenant Mike Murphy, Petty Officer Danny Dietz and Petty Officer Matt Axelson, are charged with reconnaissance and surveillance of brutal Senior Taliban Commander Ahmad Shah and his group of men in the operation which plans to capture or kill him following his killing around 20 marines in the previous weeks. However, it soon becomes obvious that the mission is compromised when Shah's 'small' group of men appears to be more of an army and, when the SEALs attempted to launch a surprise attack on a small group in a nearby woodland, they are forced to liberate them when they realise they are civilians in spite of the obvious danger. When the SEALs find themselves ambushed, they are forced to do everything in their power to protect one another.
'Lone Survivor' is a new war drama based on a true story documented in the book 'Lone Survivor: The Eyewitness Account of Operation Redwing and the Lost Heroes of SEAL Team 10' by the real Marcus Luttrell. It has been directed and written by Peter Berg ('Hancock', 'The Kingdom', 'Battleship') and is set for UK release on February 21st 2014.
