True Detective Season 2 Did NOT Just Do That! Find Out If Your Fave Just Bit The Dust!

| Filed under: TV NewsColin FarrellVince VaughnRachel McAdams

no title

Holy crap, True Detective!

OK, for everyone saying that nothing happens in Season 2, obviously that's all changed now.

The decision to spend almost the entire first episode on character backstory was not a very popular one, but we're guessing bringing things to a head this early isn't exactly what fans had in mind!

The second ep was all about the early legwork of the murder investigation by detectives Rachel McAdams, Colin Farrell, and Taylor Kitsch and crook Vince Vaughn, who has a financial interest in solving the case.

It all seems very first-ten-minutes-of-Law & Order until things go True Detective Season 1-style crazy!

This time around, in Sunday's premiere, we have a new set of A-listers including Rachel McAdams, Vince Vaughn, Taylor Kitsch, and Colin Farrell – who're slated to solve a new crime in the (fictional) city of Vinci, CA.

It really wouldn't be True Detective without … a murder!

Director Cameron Crowe Issues 'Heart-Felt Apology' For Casting Emma Stone In Aloha! Find Out Why HERE!

Beloved director Cameron Crowe's new film Aloha is struggling to stay afloat after harsh waves of negative reviews!

The Bradley Cooper rom-com barely made a splash it's opening weekend, coming in sixth at the box office with only $10 million. (Compared to San Andreas, which made $54 million!)

Critics have been blasting the Almost Famous director for whitewashing a film that takes place in Hawaii — specifically Emma Stone's character Captain Allison Ng, who in the film is one-quarter Hawaiian with a half-Chinese father.

Now, the 57-year-old has issued a "heart-felt apology" to those who didn't agree with the casting choice. He explained that Stone's character was based on a real redhead who was always frustrated that she didn't look the part of her Hawaiian heritage.

Crowe wrote the apology on his blog TheUncool:

"I have heard your words and your disappointment, and I offer you a heart-felt apology to all who felt this was an odd or misguided casting choice. As far back as 2007, Captain Allison Ng was written to be a super-proud 1/4 Hawaiian who was frustrated that, by all outward appearances, she looked nothing like one. A half-Chinese father was meant to show the surprising mix of cultures often prevalent in Hawaii. Extremely proud of her unlikely heritage, she feels personally compelled to over-explain every chance she gets. The character was based on a real-life, red-headed local who did just that."

The director continued to explain that the production employed a ton of locals and casted a bunch of Hawaiian actors — who were supporting characters for white leads Cooper, Stone, and Rachel McAdams.

But it seems as though Crowe learned his lesson. In the future, he plans to tell more stories with racial diversity!

Do YOU think the director's explanation will save Aloha from sinking?
