Brad Pitt is NOT being eyed for season 2 of “True Detective,” despite an inaccurate report circulating the Internet.

It seems that the rumor was started by a know-nothing blog trying to take advantage of the show’s popularity after the exciting season 1 finale.

The story spread quickly, in part because “True Detective” creator Nic Pizzolatto has remained tight-lipped about season 2, only revealing that it will be about “hard women, bad men and the secret occult history of the United States transportation system.”

But here’s the real story: There is currently no talk of Pitt joining the show.

An impeccable HBO insider tells Gossip Cop that the Pitt rumor is “pure speculation by an outsider.”

When there’s actual casting news for season 2, we’ll be on it.
