Actor Colin Farrell is reportedly negotiating his return to TV to star in the second season of hit crime drama True Detective.

Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson played troubled police detectives trying to solve a 17-year-old murder case in the 2014 anthology series.

A new set of actors are due to take over the lead roles for season two and now Total Recall star Farrell has become the latest name to be linked to a part.

Lone Survivor actor Taylor Kitsch is also being considered, according to TheWrap.com.

Farrell last appeared on the small screen in a 2005 appearance on U.S. TV series Scrubs, while he also had a major TV role in BBC drama series Ballykissangel in the late 1990s.

Christian Bale and Jessica Chastain were previously linked to roles in True Detective, but they have since denied they are involved with the project.
