Mahershala Ali To Lead TRUE DETECTIVE Season 3

Mahershala Ali To Lead TRUE DETECTIVE Season 3

Let's be real: the mere fact that Ali carries the laudable cachet of being an Oscar-winner is enough to return to respectability to the True Detective name.

In stunning pre-holiday news, Oscar victor Mahershala Ali is nearing a deal to play the lead on the third season of HBO's TRUE DETECTIVE, the Tracking Board has exclusively learned.

Timberwolves trade Rubio to Jazz for first-round pick
That eats into the $32 million or so in cap space the Timberwolves can now clear if they renounce the rights to their free agents. This is the second big trade of the offseason for the Wolves, who acquired Jimmy Butler from the Chicago Bulls on draft night.

EW also report that Deadwood creator David Milch has been brought on board work alongside Pizzolatto on the new season, which has yet to officially be green-lit by HBO. With speeches like the "Everybody wants to be king" scene, and his sudden bouts of anger, the role of Cottonmouth required a lot of the same skills as the role of Matthew McConaughey's fan-favorite Detective Rust Cohle from the first season.

The 43-year-old won Best Supporting Actor at this year's Oscars for Moonlight, but now he's reportedly in negotiations to front the third season of HBO's True Detective. A confusing plot line was met with an underwhelming conclusion and the shows fan base disintegrated without much hope of a third season. ".I set him up to deliver, in a very short time frame, something that became very challenging to deliver".

ESPN is "OnScene" in Brisbane for the WBO World Welterweight title fight between Australian Jeff Horn and Manny Pacquiao . As a matter of fact, the Pacquiao vs Horn fight will shown live free on ESPN in the United States.

Though Ali would potentially be a huge get for "True Detective", it is still unclear if the show will be picked up again for a new season. Find his muse. And so I think that's what I learned from it. Should the show come back, series creator Nic Pizzolatto has already written at least two episodes of a third season. If Ali is indeed selected to lead the cast, it'll be a good hint that things are back on track. A deal is reportedly yet to be in place, but negotiations are now underway.

According to Pelissero, the deal includes $70 million in total guarantees. He isn't the only member of the 2014 draft class worthy of a raise.
