True Detective Season 2: Brad Pitt Tossing a Beer to Matthew McConaughey

+

It seems like True Detective is taking a really hard right angle turn tone-wise for its upcoming season, as this video from the set of the hit HBO series shows. In it Matthew McConaughey’s character Rust Cohle has moved to New Orleans, where he’s befriended Saints quarterback Drew Brees, likely to go undercover in some sort of NFL steroid-murder conspiracy plot. His new partner, as has long been rumored, looks like it will be played by Brad Pitt. But instead of existential handwringing and displays of sudden violence and masculine bravado, the two heroes just toss cold brewskis back and forth to one another, forever. Time is in infinite loop. As Rust might say, “If the only thing keeping a person decent is the expectation of cupla cold ones, brother, that person is a cool ass bro and I want to party with him.”
