An actor from the NBC series “Friday Night Lights” is joining the HBO drama series “True Detective.” Actor Taylor Kitsch told AdWeek that he has been cast in the show, a move that had been rumored to be in the works.
“I’m really excited. I’ve just been prepping. It’s been almost a full year since I’ve been on camera, so I’m itching, man. I’m overdue,” Kitsch said.
He added, “It was tough to sit a year out, keeping a finger crossed that I was going to get ‘True.’”
Kitsch said he turned down work because he wanted to be part of “True Detective.” He will join the second season of the show, which will star Colin Farrell and Vince Vaughn.
