As we sit in the void of having no True Detective in our lives, there are a million possibilities we are all considering for the next season of the show and the detectives that will be featured. While we al have our dream pairings, one of the more recent ones to be mentioned is a bit odd and sort of a turn off.
According to Huffington Post, the Spider-Man 2 actor has been talking about True Detective and how she wants to be paired with an unconventional choice — Kristen Wiig.
This seems like a good idea for a spoof of the series but not necessarily as a replacement to Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson. Still, pairing those two together ended up resulting in one of the most amazing duos we could have hoped for, so we probably shouldn’t judge a detective pairing by it’s cover.
Still, pairing Wiig and Stone together seems like a bad idea which means it probably is. No matter who good McConaughey and Harrelson were, they had a past in dramatic acting with both getting nominated for — and in McConaughey’s case, winning — an Oscar for their work.
Wiig was nominated for an Oscar in 2012 thanks to the script for Bridesmaids bit that’s hardly True Detective and skepticism from fans is well justified.
