Nina Dobrev hasn’t been shy about her love of HBO’s ‘True Detective’ series, and now, HollywoodLife.com has EXCLUSIVELY learned that she’s pushing her people to get her a spot on the show’s yet-to-be announced third season. How exciting!
True Detective is one of the most buzzed about shows on television right now, and apparently Nina Dobrev, 26, has taken notice! The Vampire Diaries‘ actress is currently pushing for a role in the show’s yet-to-be-announced third season, but as HollywoodLife.com has EXCLUSIVELY learned, she’s also not the only one! “One of the people who would love to get her hands on a role in True Detective for season three is Nina Dobrev,” our source tells us EXCLUSIVELY. “She has told her people to start talking to the right people and to get her into those meetings. She knows she has time since season two has just ended, but she wants to be first in line for when decisions are to be made.” This is so exciting!
Still, even if she is first in line, Nina is likely to have some rough competition, as the addictive crime series has previously cast such talented individuals as Matthew McConaughey, 45, Colin Farrell, 39, and Rachel McAdams, 36. “Everyone in Hollywood is clamoring for a role on two shows right now and those shows are True Detective and Empire,” added our source. “It is something that is keeping casting agents busy, but also making their lives easier because producers are getting whom and what they want.”
Nina has been a fan from the start however, previously tweeting her love of the show back in March 2014. “True Detective is taking over my life. Can’t sleep til I finish. #BingeWatching,” she wrote presumably in-between episodes (not unlike ourselves). We for one love Nina and think that she would make an awesome addition to the show’s star-studded cast. After all, if she can pull off playing a dark, sexy vampire, she can surely handle the role of a bad-ass detective, no? What do you think HollywoodLifers — would Nina make a good addition to the True Detectives cast? Let us know your thoughts in the comments below!
