On a day where near of every Liam Neeson fan has been quoting ‘Key & Peele‘ at their highest volume, the Comedy Central duo will next pop up in the unlikeliest of place; FX’s forthcoming ‘Fargo‘ TV series! Yep, Keegan-Michael Key and Jordan Peele will guest star in the FX limited series adapting the Coen brothers film of the same name, but as whom, you ask?

Via FX, the ever-popular ‘Key & Peele’ funnymen will pop up in the last four episodes of the adapted ‘Fargo’ series as Webb Pepper and Bill Budge, FBI partners who become obsessed with finding the sketchy Lorne Malvo (Billy Bob Thornton) after a violent run-in with the man.

In addition to the comedians and Thornton, FX’s ‘Fargo’ features ‘Sherlock‘ star Martin Freeman as henpecked leading man Lester Nygaard, while Colin Hanks will portray Duluth Police Deputy Gus Grimly, a single father who finds himself faced with a choice between his own personal safety and his police duties, along with ‘Always Sunny‘ star Glenn Howerton as ambitious personal trainer Don Chumph, Kate Walsh as Gina Hess, a former stripper raising twin teenagers, Oliver Platt as supermarket king Stavros Milos, as well as roles for Joey King, Peter Breitmayer, Tom Musgrave, and Josh Close.

Unusual casting to be certain, though FX’s ‘Fargo’ seems thus far to strike the proper tone of violence and humor, so we’ll happily give Key & Peele a go. Check out the latest teaser for the series below, and tell us if you’ll tune in for the April 15 premiere, don’t cha know!
