List Rules Be your own Yellow King and vote up your favorite pairings of big-name stars who should topline season 2 of "True Detective."

Update: April 2015: Season Two of True Detective is scheduled to premiere on June 21, 2015, and will feature Colin Farrell, Vince Vaughn, Rachel McAdams, and Taylor Kitsch in principal roles. But that doesn't mean we still can't have fun with fan casting! Who would be the dream cast for True Detective?

"True Detective" may be over, but as Rust Cohle says, "Time is a flat circle, and we'll be at this again." Well, at least the audience will be at it again in another year or so when HBO kicks off season two of the crime drama. The concept of the show is that each season will have a new location, new crime, and a new pair of detectives out to solve the case. And that's where you come in.

Which pair of high-profile actors are best suited to topline season two of "True Detective"? Our list criteria is based off the season one paring of Woody Harrelson and Matthew McConaughey. We're looking at actors who typically star in movies, awards-worthy acting talent, similar appearance and age, and teams we want to see back together. This list features a bunch of our suggestions for pairs who should star in "True Detective" season two. So vote up your favorite pairings - plus, add any pairs you feel are missing from this list.
