In a surprise to exactly nobody, Taylor Kitsch finally confirmed today that he will indeed be a part of Season 2 of HBO’s True Detective.

Speaking with AdWeek, the former Friday Night Lights star said “I’m really excited. I’ve just been prepping. It’s been almost a full year since I’ve been on camera, so I’m itching, man. I’m overdue… I can’t fucking wait to hit camera.”

Kitsch joins Vince Vaughn and Colin Farrell in the cast, which is still in the process of filling the final female part before shooting begins. Rachel McAdams has long been rumored as the favorite, but there has yet to be official word on her role.
