'True Detective': A Surprise Reunion Between Matthew McConaughey And Woody Harrelson
Rust Cohle and Marty Hart are back.
Old friends Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson have been spending some quality time together recently. The pair, originally from Texas, were reunited after the unforgettable first season of True Detective, screened in 2014. While eager fans immediately interpreted the image of the two actors as a sign that Nic Pizzolatto's crime anthology series would soon be back on their screens, it turns out that the two men actually meet up on a yearly basis.
Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson met in the late 1990s and regularly came into contact with one another on film sets. They first worked together on romantic comedy EDtv in 1999, in which they played brothers. Ten years later, the bromance deepened in the comedy Surfer, Dude where the actors played a mentor and his protégé. Finally, they played Rust Cohle and Marty Hart in True Detective, which relaunched McConaughey's career alongside the movie Interstellar which was released the same year.
Each year, the pair meet up with Sacha Baron Cohen, Bono, comedian Chris Rock and Lars Ulrich, the drummer from Metallica, for what they call the "friendship tour". So there's no new season of True Detective on the horizon, despite the fact that the most recent installment, starring the brilliant Mahershala Ali and Stephen Dorff, revealed the existence of a number of different investigations within the same universe.
