John Hawkes, Fiona Shaw Among Cast – Deadline

HBO is rounding out the cast for True Detective: Night Country. John Hawkes (Deadwood, Winter’s Bone), Christopher Eccleston (The Leftovers), Fiona Shaw (Kitty Eve)Finn Bennett (Dominatrix) and Anna Lambe (Three Pines) are seen as leads alongside Jodie Foster and Kali Reis in Season 4 of the crime anthology series.

In True Detective: Night Country, from writer-director-showrunner Issa López, when the long winter night falls in Ennis, Alaska, the six men who operate the Tsalal Arctic Research Station vanish without a trace. To solve the case, Detectives Liz Danvers (Foster) and Evangeline Navarro (Reis) will have to confront the darkness they carry in themselves, and dig into the haunted truths that lie buried under the eternal ice.

Hawkes will play Hank Prior, a police officer with old grudges hiding under a quiet surface.

Eccleston will portray Ted Corsaro, the regional Chief of Police and a political animal with a long history tying him to Liz Danvers (Foster).

Shaw is Rose Aguineau, a survivalist with a past full of secrets.

Bennett will play Peter Prior, Liz Danvers’ protégé and apprentice— both for better or worse.

Lambe will portray Kayla Malee, a young nurse with little patience for anyone who messes with her family.
