Four more actors have reportedly been added to the "True Detective" season two cast, with Kelly Reilly ("Black Box," "Flight"), Abigail Spencer ("Suits," "Rectify"), Leven Rambin ("The Hunger Games," "Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters"), and Michael Irby ("Almost Human") poised to join the ensemble.

Deadline reports that Reilly is finalizing a deal to play a regular role on the HBO series, while Spencer, Rambin, and Irby are up for recurring roles.

The report also notes that both Reilly and Spencer were on the short list to nab the female lead, which has reportedly been offered to Rachel McAdams. Both women reportedly impressed creator Nic Pizzolatto, who cast them in other roles after meeting with them for McAdams's part.

According to Deadline, the casting breakdown for the new foursome is as follows:

Reilly would play the self-possessed Morgan. Irby is poised to play McAdams' partner, now named Elvis. Rambin would likely play Sophia, a beauty with a history of drug problems, while Spencer is in line to portray Alicia, the survivor of a sexual attack.


Vince Vaughn, Colin Farrell, and Taylor Kitsch also star. The second season of "True Detective" is set to air on HBO sometime next year.
