Colin Farrell and Taylor Kitsch rumored to be two of the leads for season two.

Colin Farrell is one of my favorite actors. This is good news for me. I'm hoping it does for him what it did for McC

I'm not sure Farrell is one of my favorite actors, but I agree that like McConaughey, he seems to have coasted through some crappy roles, but has latent acting chops that could come out in something good.

Kitsch, I'm less sure of. I loved Friday Night Lights and his character there, but I'm not sure about his actual ability. His one role might just be stoic, but inwardly nice and thoughtful, meathead/gearhead guy.

I'm not sure Farrell has the chops to pull off this kind of acting. Hope he's up to it. Kitsch was in an HBO movie recently about the AIDS outbreak. I can't think of the title (and am too lazy to google it even though I could have done so repeatedly in the amount of time it took me to write this) and he was exceptional. I was surprised at how good he was.

Kitsch played minor league hockey before he ruined his knee.

I honestly hope he's playing Tim Riggins turned detective on the show.

Do you mean in terms of a career rebirth, or? McC has been on a roll for several years now.

The show has set the bar so high that I'm not sure any actor will fill the shoes, so you really have to forget season 1 and just measure season 2 as as stand alone, but I'm sure people won't.
