THE news just gets better and better for Tralee’s Timothy V Murphy as he has just scored a role in the hugely popular HBO drama ‘True Detective’ alongside fellow Irish man Colin Farrell.

Murphy, a native of Oakpark, is an award-winning star of stage and screen, and is set to play Russian gangster Osip Agranov in the series.

He is getting a reputation as a great bad guy, having previously starred as Galen O’Shay in FX’s “Sons of Anarchy” series which earned him a BuzzFocus Reader’s Choice Award and also played the villain in CBS’ crime drama “Criminal Minds.”

His movie credits include: ‘The Lone Ranger’, ‘The Road To Paloma’, ‘Appaloosa’, ‘National Treasure: Book of Secrets’, and dozens of other features.

He is rumoured to be appearing in all the episodes of season two of ‘True Detective’, which has won multiple awards for its brilliant first series which starred Matthew McConnaughy and Woody Harrelson.

The Tralee man has just wrapped a new NetFlix Comedy Series, “Grace and Frankie” opposite Jane Fonda and can be seen in numerous soon-to-be-released feature films.

Last month we reported that he was to play the lead role in  ‘Holy Roller’, a new TV series in the development stage about a priest in Las Vegas (for story click here).

The ‘True Detective’ role is bound to take his career to a whole new level.

Well done Tim and good luck!
