Well Played, HBO - If Mahershala Ali Is in

  • 'Moonlight' Star Mahershala Ali in Talks for 'True Detective' Season 3

Ali won a supporting actor Oscar for his role in Best Picture victor Moonlight.

A few months back we reported that writer and producer David Milch - of Deadwood and N.Y.P.D Blue fame - would be joining series creator Nic Pizzolatto in the script-writing process. After massive success with both fans and critics during the initial season, the second season failed to impress either, with convoluted storylines, excessively twisted plots, and an unsatisfying ending for most, among other issues.

HBO has a tradition of casting big names in True Detective, including Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson in Season 1, and Colin Farrell, Rachel McAdams and Taylor Kitsch in Season 2.

So where did this Dru guy come from and why didn't Gru doesn't know about him? Gru and Dru's relationship is also a nonstarter. The movie's antagonist, '80s child actor turned super villain Balthazar Bratt ( Trey Parker ), stays mostly on the backburner.

Interest in True Detective wasn't so high during its second season.

"It's not dead", he said at the time (via Deadline). In January, HBO President of Programming Casey Bloys indicated that he was "hopeful" about a third installment because creator Nic Pizzolatto was "closing in on an idea that he was excited about". "It's a very valuable franchise for us.I'm not sure we have the right take for a third season yet".

Of course, there are any number of questions now floating around True Detective season 3. Unfortunately, there are no details now available about the potential plot of Season 3, so we can't even guess what kind of character Ali would play. "'Gee, I'd love to repeat that next year, '" he added. It's got all the ingredients of a ideal True Detective season: pair Ali with Emma Stone's rookie detective; throw in hard-as-nails, corrupt and conflicted chief of police Viola Davis, who just happens to be Stone's adoptive mother; and for your skeeze-ball gross villain, you've got Casey Affleck. Find his muse. And so I think that's what I learned from it.
