The amount of coverage on the upcoming second season of HBO’s anthology series True Detective has been, well, intense. Just about every actor on the planet was reported as being on a shortlist, in talks, circling, or eyed for a role in the new season, and while the cast is nearly set with Colin Farrell and Vince Vaughn confirmed, Rachel McAdams holding an offer for the female lead, and Taylor Kitsch expected to take a supporting role, speculation continues for a few more unspecified parts. While we await further development on that front, the excellent duo of Ellen Page and Kate Mara have thrown their hats into the ring for a spinoff of sorts, Tiny Detectives. The title of the new Funny or Die short is pretty self-explanatory, and yes it’s a very simple joke, but that doesn’t make it any less funny.
