Matthew McConaughey has revealed that he would be open to appearing in another season of True Detective. The actor - who played Detective Rust Cohle in the acclaimed first run of the HBO drama - said that he would "be open to doing another one" after his positive experience.
Speaking to Deadline, the Oscar winner said that he wouldn't have agreed to join the Nic Pizzolatto drama had he been offered a multi-season deal. "That was always how I saw it. One season, eight episodes, a finite beginning, middle and end, goodbye, look forward to watching it," he explained. "If HBO had wanted an option on me for a season two or three, I wouldn't have done it.
"I wouldn't have walked into something where they could say, 'We've got you for the next three years'."
However, he added: "I liked True Detective, the whole series and the experience of making it, so much that I'd be open to doing another one now. At the time, I was looking at six months and not beyond that.
"I don't know of a feature film I'd sign for where I'm going to say, 'If this works, you've got me whenever you want me for the next three years'."
Pizzolatto recently confirmed that the second season of the drama will have three leads, and will be set in California.
Last month, it was reported that Jessica Chastain had been offered the lead role in season two, although this was later denied.
