All sorts of interesting rumours floating around today … Jessica Chastain has reportedly been offered a role in Season Two of True Detective. She is currently at the Cannes Film Festival, pictured on the red carpet with her dress blowing in the wind like a Bob Dylan song. The first season of True Dick starred Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson as two dark and troubled Louisiana policemen, and was a huge hit. Season Two will feature another pair of A-Listers playing detective, and Brad Pitt is also rumored to be up for the gig.
Speaking of which, Brad Pitt is in New Orleans for the Make it Right Gala. I’m not sure what that is, but I bet it makes things right, or righter than they were before. In any case, there were pictures of him online yesterday tossing a beer off a balcony to … Matthew McConaughey (see how things go full circle?)
And then he joined Bruno Mars on stage at the Galaand played tambourine to a cover of James Brown’s “Get Up I’m a Sex Machine”.
And in somewhat related news, George Clooney has asked Matt Damon to be his best man. Clooney is engaged to British lawyer Amal Alamuddin, and it looks like he wants Matt to stand up for him. NOT Brad Pitt, as one might have thought. Brad locked himself in the bathroom and cried for hours.
After the wedding, reportedly to take place in Quebec City, George and Amal will take up residence in London where she will continue her law practice. Until she gets it right.
