It seems fitting that a show which explores the nature of justice should get its own Justice League addition.
Deadline has reported that Justice League star, Ray Fisher, has joined the cast of True Detective’s third season as Freddy Burns, son to Mahershala Ali’s Wayne Hays. Given that the season will focus on “a mystery that deepens over decades and plays out in three separate time periods” it’s likely that Fisher will only appear in one or two of them.
In addition to this casting news, it has also been announced that Rhys Wakefield (The Purge), Michael Greyeyes (Fear the Walking Dead), and Jon Tenney (The Closer) have all landed recurring roles.
Oscar-winner Mahershala Ali will play Northwest Arkansas state police detective Hays, with Stephen Dorff as his partner. The Girlfriend Experience’s Carmen Ejogo has been cast as a school teacher connected to two missing children, and Mamie Gummer and Scoot McNairy are recurring, most likely as parents to one (or both) of the missing children.
Series creator Nic Pizzolatto will be the primary writer on Season 3, alongside Deadwood’s David Milch, who will also direct the fourth episode. Pizzolatto will also act as showrunner and direct with Jeremy Saulnier, while the executive producers include Scott Stephens, Matthew McConaughey, Woody Harrelson, and original director Cary Fukunaga.
