'True Detective' Season 2 Needs One of These 'FNL' Ladies to Take the Lead
There's been big news in the True Detective realm over the past few days: The show's second season was announced to feature not two but four leads. Friday, it was rumored that one of those leads might be Friday Night Light 's Taylor Kitsch.
Kitsch, if he lands the gig, will obviously not be playing Tim Riggins. But that won't stop me from digging into his FNL origins and brainstorming who could join him in his True Detective ventures. That show needs some ladies — so here are some options.
Her hair is magic. She is magic. It would be magic. And can you imagine if Mrs. Coach and Riggins hooked up???
Palicki is way (way) overdue for a breakout role.
Mindy Collette never really got her due.
Much like Adrianne Palicki, I would like it if Smollett-Bell were in approximately 150 percent more things.
Remember that episode where Riggins lived with the Taylors? Teegarden and Kitsch work well together. Let’s get them on the same show again.
She had a pretty small role — she played Bird Merriweather, Jess’s aunt — but after showing us her chops in Season 2 of Orange Is the New Black she seems like she’d fit in on any show.
Dora Madison Burge
The former Becky Sproles could play, like, someone’s niece or something, at the very least.
She’s been circling around plenty of shows — that Charlie’s Angels reboot, Parenthood, Almost Human — but a jump to HBO might do Kelly some good.
