Video: Corey Kluber auditions for ‘True Detective’

Cleveland Indians pitcher Corey Kluber has been seemingly unhittable since the All-Star break. The team’s ace has posted a 0.76 ERA since the Midsummer Classic.

But he also possesses another hidden talent that many fans and analysts alike may not know aboutacting.

Kluber is known for his stoic, all-business demeanor when on the mound, which has drawn comparisons to Rust Cohle (played by Matthew McConaughey) from HBO’s hit series, “True Detective.”

So he decided to produce an audition video, reciting some of Cohle’s best lines from the show while wearing a blonde wig.

Kluber’s acting debut was solid, but he’s going to need more than a blonde wig if he wants to measure up to McConaughey.
