Justice League star Ray Fisher has joined the already-impressive cast of the third season of HBO’s True Detective.
Created and written by Nic Pizzolatto, the anthology crime drama premiered in 2014 to critical acclaim and high ratings, with Season 1 stars Woody Harrelson and Matthew McConaughey singled out for their performances. The more uneven second season was headlined by the likes of Colin Farrell, Vince Vaughn, Amy McAdams and Taylor Kitsch.
According to Deadline, the 30-year-old Fisher landed a major role in Season 3, rounding out another wave of casting that also includes The Purge‘s Rhys Wakefield, Fear the Walking Dead‘s Michael Greyeyes and The Closer‘s Jon Tenney.
Fisher and the others join the previously cast Mahershala Ali, Carmen Ejogo, Stephen Dorff, Scoot McNairy and Mamie Gummer. We already know that Ali plays state investigator Wayne Hayes, while Fisher has reportedly been cast as his son Freddy Burns.
This season, True Detective heads to the Ozarks for a grisly murder mystery set over three different time periods.
Starting in theater, Fisher’s credits include the comedy The Good, the Bad, and the Confused and portraying Muhammed Ali in Will Power’s play Fetch Clay, Make Man. However, the young actor rose to prominence with a blink-and-you’ll-miss-it cameo in 2016’s Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. Reprising his role for last year’s Justice League, Fisher is best known as Victor Stone/Cyborg. It’s presumed he will continue his role in the DC Extended Universe — reportedly appearing in the upcoming Flashpoint — and is also set for a Cyborg origin film.
