Actor Brad Pitt is rumoured to be one of the leading candidates to replace Matt McConaughey in the HBO television series "True Detective" and the fact that he is seriously considering making this move is sending seismic shifts throughout the entertainment industry. Brad Pitt is a Hollywood box office star and usually movie stars do not work in the medium of television but the success of Matthew McConaughey in the show "True Detective" has made many actors and in particular Brad Pitt think differently about television and online television shows.
Brad Pitt is an actor who enjoys pushing himself to his dramatic limits and it looks like he is reading the "tea leaves" and watching as some of the best actors and directors are now creating projects on television and online television. Brad Pitt started as a television actor with the show "Dallas" but if he were to replace Matthew McConaughey who has already announced that he will be leaving the show it would change how television shows are looked at throughout Hollywood.
There are actors who are as popular as Brad Pitt but it is unlikely that there is any actor who is more popular or known at this current time than Brad Pitt and as such his decisions and actions are felt throughout Hollywood. If Brad Pitt decides to join the series "True Detective" that would make it acceptable for almost any actor to work in television.
Brad Pitt on the television show "True Detective" is the ideal replacement for Matthew McConaughey because he is one of the few actors whose presence would almost guarantee that the ratings for the show do not dip but instead would likely increase. Brad Pitt is an actor/producer who does not go according to convention and thus fans should not be surprised to see him join the HBO show "True Detective" for its second season.
