Season 1 premiered in January 2014, and season 2 debuted in June 2015, leaving us without a solid clue about when the show may be back. We'll update this section as more news comes to light. True Detective season 3: casting and characters One would assume that True Detective season 3 would feature a new cast, considering that Matthew McConaughey, Woody Harrelson and Michelle Monaghan didnt come back after season 1. Colin Farrell, Rachel McAdams, Taylor Kitsch and Vince Vaughn lead season 2, but could well be absent from season 3 (if it ever goes ahead). True Detective season 3: learning the lessons of season 2 HBO’s president of programming Michael Lombardo has now expressed some regret regarding True Detective season 2, suggesting that he may have learned some important lessons. “[W]hen we tell somebody to hit an air date as opposed to allowing the writing to find its own natural resting place, when it’s ready, when it’s baked — we’ve failed,” Mr Lombardo told The Frame .

Ron Shelton’s White Men Cant Jump told the story of Sidney Deane (Wesley Snipes) and Billy Hoyle (Woody Harrelson), two men who team up to hustle other Los Angeles street basketball players. Despite the alliance, the two continually bicker—with each other and their significant others. Here are some elevating facts about the hit film, which arrived in theaters 25 years ago today. 1. SHELTON WROTE THE FIRST 37 PAGES OF THE SCRIPT IN ONE DAY. The Bull Durham writer-director admitted that he is never that fast with his writing . It helped that Shelton already had the basic idea of his movie in mind, and was a L.A. street basketball player himself. 2. DENZEL WASHINGTON WAS THE ORIGINAL CHOICE FOR SIDNEY. Denzel Washington was dead set on playing Malcolm X next and turned them down . Shelton considered Cylk Cozart for the lead role , too. Ultimately, Cozart was cast in the role of Robert.

Oscar winner, occasional wedding crasher and noted Twitter enthusiast Tom Hanks took to his favorite social media platform over the weekend to make a few good-natured jokes that included poking fun at his memorable role in Cast Away . Hanks tweeted out a photo of a hilarious movie billing in St. Louis, MO for Woody Harrelson's latest movie, Wilson. The sign noted that although the movie was about Wilson, it did not feature Hanks, whose co-star Wilson almost stole the show in 2000's Cast Away . Hanks' response? To ask Woody Harrelson for a ticket over Twitter, making sure to sign off his tweet with his signature Hanx, not Harrelson. See Hanks' funny tweet below. That is correct. Woody Harrelson! I want a ticket! In St. Louis. Hanx (not Harrelson) pic.twitter.com/FFMLBrvqXS Tom Hanks (@tomhanks) March 25, 2017
