Tory Kittles (Sons Of Anarchy) has landed a regular role on True Detective, HBO‘s upcoming eight-episode drama series starring Woody Harrelson and Matthew McConaughey. The project centers on detectives Rust Cohle (McConaughey) and Martin Hart (Harrelson), whose lives collide and entwine during a 17-year hunt for a serial killer in Louisiana. The investigation of a bizarre murder in 1995 is framed and interlaced with testimony from the detectives in 2012, when the case was reopened. In a recasting, Kittles will play Detective Thomas Papania who, along with his partner Maynard Gilbough (Michael Potts), question Hart and Cohle about the 1995 case and feel the duo is hiding something. Kittles, repped by APA and Circle of Confusion, replaces Wood Harris who was originally cast in the role. He recently co-starred in Lifetime’s highly-rated Steel Magnolias remake and in The Sapphires, recently acquired by the Weinstein Co.

Former Flashpoint star Hugh Dillon is set as a regular on the upcoming third season of the AMC’s drama The Killing, from Fox TV Studios. Season 3 follows Detective Sarah Linden (Mireille Enos) as she investigates the disappearance of another teen girl. Dillon will play Becker, who goes head to head with death row inmate Seward (Peter Sarsgaard). Also cast on the series in a recurring role is Aaron Douglas (Battlestar Galactica) who will play Gabe, a prison guard on death row. Dillon, lead of punk band The Headstones, is with Bernie Breen in Canada and KLWGN. Douglas is with Russ Mortensen and Gersh.
