McConaughey, Harrelson to star in new detective series?

It looks like Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson are on the case.

The actors (and real-life buds) might co-star in "True Detective," an eight-part cable series about a pair of Louisiana detectives, according to Deadline.

The series will follow cops Rust Cohle (McConaughey) and Martin Hart (Harrelson), who cross paths while hunting a serial killer.

The forthcoming series will reportedly be directed by "Jane Eyre’s" Cary Fukunaga, however, it has yet to find a network.

McConaughey and Harrelson previously worked together on 1999's "Edtv" and 2008's "Surfer, Dude."

    I think both of these guys are pretty cool, so this would be interesting as long as MM shows up to act and doesn't just phone it in.

    Thanks for any other excellent article. Where else could anyone get that kind of information in such a perfect way of writing? I have a presentation next week, and I'm on the search for such info.

    Is it just me, or do both of them look as if they are on something.

      They are both pot heads so they probably are on something. I thought that too when I looked at them. LOL.

    Both look like they just got out of prison. If I seen them I'd think they were criminals.
