Exclusive True Detective (HBO) Interview: Michael Potts Delves Into His Character’s Psyche and the Importance of Storytelling

HBO’s addictive crime drama True Detective is a time-bending exploration into the dark hearts of men. Woody Harrelson and Matthew McConaughey are the stars as Detectives Martin Hart and Rust Cohle, two men whose lives become hopelessly twisted with a dark case, but as one of the two detectives investigating them, Michale Potts’ Detective Gilbough is an important piece of the series’ ever-shifting puzzle.

Having previously worked on three HBO projects– OzBored to Death and The Wire –before True Detective, Potts is an acclaimed character actor both onscreen and onstage. Currently, he is starring in “The Book of Mormon” on Broadway, but Potts took time out of his busy schedule to discuss True Detective, Detective Gilbough and the importance of long form storytelling with TV Equals.
