Matthew McConaughey has said he wouldn’t “hesitate for a second” to sign up for Season Three of True Detective.
Earlier this year, he expressed an interest in returning to the show in which he played Rustin Cohle in the first series of the HBO drama.
Now he has reiterated his interest in returning to the series in a recent interview on The Rich Eisen Show, which you can watch below.
“Last time you were on the show, Matthew … I asked you at the time, ‘well, what about maybe doing it again?’ And you said, ‘that’s a possibility.’ Has that ball been advanced any further down the field since we last spoke?” asked Eisen.
“That conversation you and I had caught wings because I hear that all the time now,” McConaughey said. “That ball’s not advanced at all. I’ve talked to the creator Nic Pizzolatto, who’s taking a little break from it. But again, if that thing was written well and it came up again, I wouldn’t hesitate for a second.”
The Second Season saw the actor and co-star Woody Harrelson replaced with new actors and characters in Colin Farrell and Vince Vaughn.
HBO’s president of programming, Casey Bloys, recently renewed hopes that there could be a third season of True Detective.
Bloys said that neither the network nor its creator, Nic Pizzolatto, have ruled out a follow-up to the poorly-received second season, saying of the show: “It’s not dead.”
Meanwhile, McConaughey recently became a university lecturer at University Of Texas in Austin, Texas.
The 15-week course to 30 students also saw The Hunger Games director Gary Ross as McConaughey’s joint lecturer.
The course, ‘Advanced Producing: Script To Screen’, taught students about how to practically see a film script through to getting it made and all other areas of film production. The lessons were pre-recorded videos made by McConaughey and Ross, but both made one appearance each in class during the course.
