True Detective Season 2: Here Are Some Ideas For Replacing Matt and Woody

May 21 2014 - 8:47am

We knew that Matthew McConaughey [1] and Woody Harrelson would only appear on one season of HBO's addictive mystery True Detective, and while we're sad we'll no longer get to hang with Rust and Hart, we're excited to meet some new detectives. This week, rumors swirled that Jessica Chastain was offered the lead role, but the reports have been denied by HBO and Chastain's reps. So, who will star? We have a few of our own tongue-in-cheek ideas for a new pair who would have just as much chemistry as McConaughey and Harrelson.

Ben Affleck and Matt Damon

These onscreen and real-life BFFs haven't acted together in a while, but they still have the rapport that would make them a great detective pair. Especially if they're allowed to rib each other like they do in this charity video.

Tina Fey and Amy Poehler

The Golden Globes hostesses with the mostest and comediennes are at the top of their game right now. Their jokes are supersharp, and their crime-solving skills would be too.

Jimmy Fallon and Justin Timberlake

Jimmy Fallon and Justin Timberlake have a history [3] of epic moments together, and murder-crackin' could totally be the next one.

Aaron Paul and Bryan Cranston

Isn't everyone missing Breaking Bad? This is the perfect way to reunite Aaron Paul and Bryan Cranston.

James Franco and Seth Rogen

These constant costars are one of the best duos around — remember when they made "Bound 3" [4]?

Fred Armisen and Carrie Brownstein

Carrie and Fred have already created a ton of memorable characters on Portlandia [5] — how about wacky detectives next? From Portland, of course.

Maya Rudolph and Kristen Wiig

These Saturday Night Live alums kill us every time they get together — and this time, they can be the ones who find out who's doing the killing.

Jonah Hill and Channing Tatum

This acting pair proved they had chemistry in 21 Jump Street, so I could see them pairing up yet again after that movie's sequel. Channing would be the mysterious Rust Cohle type but with sweet dance moves.

Jay Z and Kanye West

True Detective: The Rap Musical — can you imagine the verses that would come out about the yellow king?
