The Hollywood Reporter has confirmed that Rick Springfield has joined the cast of HBO's True Detective, currently shooting its eight-episode second season in California.
No details have been released regarding the "Jessie's Girl" singer's role in the series, meaning it could range from a guest spot to a recurring or regular role.
Springfield, whose acting credits include Californication and General Hospital, tweeted about his involvement on Wednesday.
Just finished my 1st day of shooting for season 2 of HBO's True Detective. What a great script. Working w/ Colin Farrell & Rachel McAdams!

Rachel McAdams stars as a second police officer, the stalwart Ani Bezzerides. Taylor Kitsch rounds out the police trio as California Highway Patrol officer Paul Woodrugh. Considering his tweet name-dropped two of the actors playing police officers, it's likely that Springfield is playing another cop.
