FX has released a new trailer for the TV version of Fargo, and, finally, we get to see more of the cast, hear more of the broad accents, and get a feel for the show. Here:
The cast of this thing is pretty outstanding. Besides Billy Bob Thornton and Martin Freeman, we get Colin Hanks (talking all Minnesota-like) as a deputy, Kate Walsh singing, Deputy Bob Odenkirk in a big furry hat, Adam Goldberg as a bad guy, and Alison Tolman as not-Marge-Gunderson-but-close-enough. Also coming up will be Key and Peele as FBI agents, Glenn Howerton bringing the D.E.N.N.I.S. System to town, no doubt, and many more. Befuddled law enforcement, quirky bad guys, a hapless schmuck in over his head, colorful townsfolk… yep, Fargo. It has the Coen Brothers’ fingerprints all over it.
“What a day,” Freeman’s beaten-up insurance salesman sighs in the ER waiting room. “If that was me,” Thornton’s drifter replies, “I woulda killed that man. If you don’t stand up to the boss, the wife, you’re just gonna get washed away.” Uh oh.
It’s coming on April 15th to FX, and, yeah, I’m in. Are you? Comment below.
