As all the theories and opinions on the crazy season finale of "True Detective" have started to simmer down, Jimmy Kimmel has provided us with an "exclusive sneak preview" of the second season of the popular HBO show.

In Austin for South By Southwest, Kimmel (dressed in his finest Texan Gentleman outfit) claimed that not only does he know who'll be cast, but that the second season will be filmed in Austin as well. The trailer features Seth Rogen doing a pretty acceptable Seth Rogen impression while dressed as Rust Cohle (watch in amazement as the cans of Lone Star pile up higher and higher, eventually turning into a Lone Star beer fort). Kimmel and Rogen play up the 'bromance' angle in the skit; Rogen dry humps Kimmel during a fight and the two even reach in for a kiss at the end.

It's not the best thing Kimmel has ever done, but it's definitely worth a chuckle here and there, especially during that fun shout out to Austin music mainstay Daniel Johnston.
