True Detective started off with a bang as Woody Harrelson and McConaughey wowed audiences with their skills as buddy cops trying to solve a series of heinous happenings. Season 3 returns to HBO in January 2019 and producers are trying to recapture the magic that was originally sprinkled all over the first offering with sizzling-hot actor Mahershala Ali in the starring role.
Ali, whose resume seems to expand exponentially every time you look at his IMDB profile, has the chops to pull off a multitude of emotions, reactions and interactions the likes of which very few can match.

Initially, way back in July 2017, his involvement was only speculatory but we’re glad it appears to be set in stone. Ali will play Wayne Hays, a Northwest Arkansas state police detective. Ray Fisher, known for playing Cyborg in Justice League, will play Freddy Burns, the son of Ali’s character.
This Is Us star Lonnie Chavis will play the same character at age 12. Carmen Ejogo, Scoot McNairy, Stephen Dorff, Mamie Gummer and Brandon Flynn round out what appears to be a dynamic cast of highly-skilled creatives.
