Rick Springfield made his debut on HBO’s “True Detective” on Sunday June 28 as Dr. Pitlor, a therapist who was treating this season’s murder victim Ben Caspere. Springfield will air again on Sunday July 2. Springfield actually cut his hair for the role and donated some of the locks to a charity auction to support the Linda Blair Worldheart Foundation, which helps to educate the public on animal cruelty.
