Some of Hollywood's biggest stars are clamoring to star in the second season of HBO's acclaimed crime saga True Detective, and now Emma Stone has officially thrown her hat into the crowded ring.
In a recent interview with Vogue, the The Amazing Spider-Man 2 star was asked about her interest in the role. "That would be amazing," she told the magazine. "I would do True Detective with Kristen Wiig in a heartbeat." The Internet has already weighed in on who'd they like to see assume the mantle from Woody Harrelson and Matthew McConaughey, but a Stone/Wiig pairing might just trump them all. The comedic darlings aren't exactly known for their dramatic work, so to see them tackle something as verbose and sinister as True Detective could prove revelatory. Or, if the show's scribe Nic Pizzolatto wants to turn the second season into a screwball buddy comedy featuring the funny women, that could work too.
First they'll have to beat out another pair of young ingenues who've expressed interest in the roles. Ellen Page and Kate Mara have been engaging in a pretty ominous Twitter back-and-forth about the show, adding to speculation that they may be in the running for the coveted roles. "Dear @EllenPage, What does this mean?! You think they like the idea of two tiny detectives? #TrueDetectiveSeason2,″ Mara tweeted after HBO's official Twitter account favorited one of her earlier True Detective-related tweets. "@_KateMara I think that basically is the equivalent of a signed contract," replied Page. "I will see you in rehearsals!"
Who would you rather see hunt psychopaths in a murky American underbelly? Page and Mara or Stone and Wiig? Sound off below! (Perez Hilton)
