I think I already figured out who The Yellow King is just from watching this beautiful minute of footage:
It's here! Another reason to talk about True Detective! This time, with actual footage from Season 2. Since the announcement that there would be another season of HBO's dark, metaphysical, sometimes-buddy-cop-show True Detective, it seemed as though everyone and their cousin was cast in it. And everyone who wasn't had an opinion on those choices. Today, the trailer dropped, and proved that Vince Vaughn, Rachel McAdams, Taylor Kitsch, and Colin Farrell all seem to be promising leads. The only thing the trailer doesn't include is any dialogue. I'm guessing that's because Nic Pizzolatto hasn't even written it yet (he didn't sign on to write Season 2 until January of 2014, and the last one took years to get made.)
Right now without the dialogue it looks kind of like an ad for Grand Theft Auto: Vice City. But still...it's gonna be good, right?
Fingers crossed it's good (i.e. existentially terrifying). The first episode airs June 21st.
If nothing else, at least this meme is over, right?
