Indians pitcher Corey Kluber filmed an 'audition' for 'True Detective'

Monday August 18th, 2014

Indians starter Corey Kluber is one of the breakout stars of the second half of the baseball season. He's 4-0 with a 0.76 ERA in six starts since the All-Star break. But that success won't stop him from exploring other career paths. Kluber might be looking try his hand at acting.

The intro to the video is really well produced, but Kluber's acting chops still need some work. He's got the deadpan delivery down, but he isn't quite as haunting as Matthew McConaughey. He should probably stick to pitching for now.
