The 43 year old star has amassed an enormous amount of admirers since his worthy Best Supporting Actor win at this years Oscars. For HBO, his addition would be a huge first step into bringing the show back to greatness, following its widely disappointing second run in 2015. Ali’s other notable credits include Hidden Figures, HBO’s Treme, The Hunger Games, and Netflix shows House Of Cards and Luke Cage.

As of March 2017, creator Nic Pizzolatto had apparently already written 2 episodes for the proposed series, undoubtedly with actors in mind to take the lead parts. It was also revealed that Deadwood creator and producer David Milch had joined the creative team.

True Detective’s first 8-part season, starring Woody Harrelson and Matthew McConaughey as Louisiana police detectives, was critically acclaimed for its writing, performances and cinematography. However its successor, with a completely new cast list, setting and narrative, failed to capitalise on the initial success.
