Its no doubt directors and filmmakers in Hollywood are gunning to have Mahershala Ali appear in one of their projects. He took over the 2017 awards season for his role in Moonlight. Now, he's in talks to return to television.
The “House of Cards” actor is reportedly in talks for a role in a potential third season of HBO’s drama series “True Detective.” The third season hasn’t even been officially renewed yet, but it’s likely that it will.

Would Mahershala play a bad a** detective looking to save the world? Or, would be play a villain wrecking havoc? We’ll just have to wait and see.
