“You don’t pick your parents and you don’t pick your partner. A smart guy who’s steady is hard to find. You know, I was steady. Rust, was smart.”
True Detective, HBO’s upcoming mystery series, follows two detectives, pessimist Rust Cohle (Matthew McConaughey) and family man Martin Hart (Woody Harrelson), on a 17-year hunt for a serial killer in Louisiana. The series follows the relationship between the detectives over this 17-year period, starting with the first murders in 1995. In the trailer, we see flashbacks to each of their past lives and early work on the investigation. Towards the end, a more recent, ragged version of McConaughey’s character is revealed saying, “like a lot of dreams, there’s a monster at the end of it.” Oooooh.
