Big little screen stars of 'True Detective'

'True Detective" is back with a new case Sunday on HBO, and just like last season, it features stars known for their big-screen work. But that doesn't mean cast members are strangers to the small screen. Here's where you may have seen them.

COLIN FARRELL -- A couple years before his star-making turn in the 2000 war drama "Tigerland," Farrell set female hearts aflutter as an Irish bad boy in the BBC drama series "Ballykissangel," which developed a cult following when it aired stateside on PBS.

VINCE VAUGHN -- He cut his acting teeth in some "Afterschool" specials in the early '90s, including ABC's "A Question of Sex," about a mother and daughter with opposing views on sex education, and "The Fourth Man," a "CBS Schoolbreak Special" in which Vaughn played the best pal of a steroid user (Peter Billingsley from "A Christmas Story").

RACHEL McADAMS -- The Ontario-born actress appeared in seven episodes of the quirky comedy "Slings & Arrows," about Canadian hams in a Shakespearean troupe. McAdams played a young actress who isn't sure if love with the actor playing Hamlet is to be or not to be.
