jessica chastain offered lead hbo true detective season 2

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!

Ugh, we just love her in purple!

Jessica Chastain was gone-with-the-wind FABULOUS during the Foxcatcher premiere at Cannes today, looking breathtaking in a Grecian-style violet gown by Elie Saab. Couldn't you just die?!

There were actually a few instances when the wind threatened to rip the dress right off her, but Jess just smiled through it like a pro!

And we're just so glad photogs got this shot of her with one leg bared to show off her silver strappy heels. Perfect shoe choice for this dress!

Perfect all-around!

CLICK HERE for her look at a photo call over the weekend!

Jessica Chastain Reps Canada At Cannes! How Cute Is Her Dress!?

Such cuteness!

Jessica Chastain went for a girly look in direct contrast to all the gowns at the Cannes Film Festival yesterday.

The actress attended the photo call of The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby in a fit-and-flare Alexander McQueen dress with unique maple leaf print. Very Canadian!

Of course, her signature red hair popped perfectly against the black of the frock, but it was her embellished pink pumps that really stole the show!

A perfect look for a photo call! Now, bring on the premiere!

Matthew McConaughey & Anne Hathaway In Space? F**k Yes! See Interstellar's First Official Trailer HERE!

| Filed under: Film FlickersMatthew McConaugheyAnne HathawayJessica ChastainMichael CaineSpace!

Wait… isn't this just Gravity? No? Okay, if you say so…

Let's be honest: Matthew McConaughey could smear mayonnaise all over his chest and sing the Champagne Song from Die Fledermaus and we would still gladly fork over $16 bucks to watch the spectacle.

So, Matty McConaHOTTIE in space?? With Anne Hathaway AND Jessica Chastain? In Christopher Nolan's first film since wrapping up the Dark Knight trilogy?

Uh, yeah, you had us at "alright, alright, alright"!

But don't take our word for it!

Ch-ch-check out the first official trailer for Interstellar (above) and get blown the eff away!

Yes!!! It's like Galaxy Quest, but without all those time consuming jokes! We're guessing the phallic-shaped rocket they launch is a metaphor for the huge boner erupting in everyone's pants right now because this is AMAZEBALLZ!

Interstellar blasts off — LOLz, sorry, couldn't resist — on November 7th.

Jessica Chastain Could Be Replacing Naomi Watts In New Marilyn Monroe Biopic - But Does She Have The Look To Play The Icon?

| Filed under: Film FlickersNaomi WattsPollsKatharine McPheeMichelle WilliamsBlake LivelyBookzJessica Chastain

marilyn casting jesica naomi movieAndrew Dominik's long promised Marilyn Monroe biopic Blonde was supposed to shoot last summer with Naomi Watts playing the lead in this reimagined story of Norma Jeane Baker's meteoric rise to fame.

Since then, plans have changed—and so has the leading actress!

Rumors have been swirling that Jessica Chastain will star in the soon-to-be filmed flick, based on the critically acclaimed novel by Joyce Carol Oates.

While we love this Oscar-nominated actress and saw her play a bombshell of sorts in The Help, we're having a hard time picturing her as the sex symbol siren that was Miz Monroe.

So many greats have taken on the damaged icon's role in film and TV, but now we ask U…
