From crashing weddings together to chasing after a killer?

Rachel McAdams, 35, is reportedly in talks to join her Wedding Crashers costar Vince Vaughn in the second season of True Detective on HBO.

According to, she’s in line to play Ani Bezzerides, a professional sheriff who likes to imbibe and gamble while off-duty.

HBO would not comment.

Vaughn, 44, along with Colin Farrell, 38, have already been cast in the second season, which HBO says will follow “three police officers and a career criminal who must navigate a web of conspiracy in the aftermath of a murder.”

Rumors persist that Taylor Kitsch may also snag the other key role.

Justin Lin, who directed several movies in The Fast and the Furious franchise, will direct the first two episodes.

Meanwhile, the show’s popularity has already prompted a hilarious send-up on Funny or Die starring Ellen Page and Kate Mara as two vertically-challenged law dogs.
