'True Detective' Season 2 Becomes a Meme & Inspires Awesome Casting Ideas

If you were watching the Olympics instead of Twitter on Thursday night — that pesky final figure skating competition always distracting you from silly Internet things — you probably missed the glorious creation of #truedetectiveseason2. Because while True Detective's inaugural season, starring Woody Harrelson and Matthew McConaughey, is ramping up to its sure-to-be thrilling conclusion, it's already time to start thinking about who HBO will cast for Season 2. After all, the series is built to get an entirely new cast and storyline each season.

And all this silliness on Twitter has got us thinking: Yeah, it's fun to think that Tina Fey and Amy Poehler could take on the series (is there anything they can't do, if you think about it?) or that Justin Timberlake and Jimmy Fallon could continue their best friendsmanship into the dark crevasses of Nic Pizzolatto's mind, but there have to be some meme-worthy duos that would actually be solid picks too. You betcha we've got some ideas that will likely never happen, but we can dream, can't we?
