"I'm really excited," he shared. "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 [expletive]ing wait to hit camera," he continued. "So I'm excited. I loved that first season of it so much. It's just like anything I've seen in, you know, I don't know when. And it was so grounded. It could really happen. This [season] is very similar, and I love that."

True Detective debuted in January, with Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson as stars. The drama follows an anthology format, and season two will feature all-new actors, including Colin Farrell and Vince Vaughn.

Kitsch came to fame as Tim Riggins on NBC series Friday Night Lights. The actor also appeared in X-Men Origins: Wolverine, John Carter and Lone Survivor, and is scheduled to voice Sam in Almost Heroes 3D.
