First, there was Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson. Then it was Rachel McAdams, Vince Vaughn and Colin Farrell. And now—drumroll, please—the next showstopping actor to grace our small screens for the True Detective series will be none other than the Academy Award-winning, insanely talented Mahershala Ali.

That's right. House of Cards alum and Oscar winner for his outstanding Moonlight performance will play a leading role in our favorite crime drama from HBO. 

Season three of the thrilling anthology is still in the works, with HBO president of programming Casey Bloys confirming he's read five scripts for the upcoming season. Athough we'll probably have to wait until 2018 to see the suspense unfold, at least we have one of the brightest stars in Hollywood leading the charge. And for that, we are truly grateful.
