Originally there were rumors that True Detective’s second season would feature two female leads. And then four leads. And now one of those leads could be Elisabeth Moss, who is indeed a female. And also an inspired choice.
She recently wrapped filming the final season of Mad Men, which would free her up to act all sulky and be puzzled by the occult on HBO. If the deal goes through, Moss will play Ani Bezzerides, a Monterey sheriff whose past troubles leave her wrestling with gambling and alcohol. She’s one of three cops investigating the brutal murder of a corrupt city manager whose body has been found along a stretch of highway with satanic symbols carved into his chest. Cases with satanic symbols are the most difficult to solve, as we learned in season one. If anyone’s up for the task, it’s the woman who figured out how to sell lipstick to other women. (The Wrap)
