Great news via THR: Dexter alum C.S. Lee, who played Dexter's smart-ass lab rat partner in crime Masuka, is the latest addition to the season two cast of HBO's hit drama series True Detective.
The eight-episode sophomore season, now in production in California, centers on three police officers and a career criminal who must navigate a web of conspiracy in the aftermath of a murder.
Lee will recur as Richard Geldof, a state attorney general with grand political ambitions. Described as smooth and polished, the character is well-spoken and intelligent, with an unmoored moral compass.
Colin Farrell stars as Ray Velcoro, a compromised detective whose allegiances are torn between his masters in a corrupt police department and the mobster who owns him. Vince Vaughn is set as Frank Semyon, a career criminal in danger of losing his empire when his move into legitimate enterprise is upended by the murder of a business partner.
