After seeing this Funny or Die spoof of True Detective starring Ellen Page and Kate Mara as "Tiny Detectives," we would totally be down with it if this was a real thing.

The two actresses, with Page standing 5'1" and Mara at 5'2", portray legitimately bad detectives who struggle with doing their job because they're just too short. We see them having a hard time reaching evidence on a shelf to being blocked by a tall person during a police briefing that's showing a photo of the Yellow King. Plus, Page saying "that's just my penis face" isn't something you hear every day.

While Colin Farrell and Vince Vaughn are locked in for their roles in Season 2 of True Detective, Variety reported today that Rachel McAdams is closing in on the female lead.
