If this were to happen, IF THIS WERE TO HAPPEN!
It seems that the wildly popular HBO show, True Detective just may have found one of their leads for season two!
None other than the lovely Jessica Chastain!
The Nerdist did some digging and learned that the Zero Dark Thirty actress has been offered one of the leads in the second season of the series, but unfortunately, has YET to accept the offer.
But, she's GOT to! Seriously!
Jess has already tackled Osama Bin Laden, so why not take on the Yellow King next?!
Just kidding, we all know Woody Harrelson and Matthew McConaughey already got rid of that problem!
But really, we TOTALLY hope she accepts! She'd be perfect for season 2!
The next question, of course, is who her co-star will be! We think someone like Greg Kinnear or Helen Hunt would be perfect to compliment Jess!
Think about it, HBO!
UPDATE: All our hopes and dreams have been crushed because Jessica's reps have DENIED the rumor and said she will NOT be doing the show! BOOOOOOOOOO!
