The past few rounds of teasers for FX's forthcoming 'Fargo' adaptation have been appropriately slow burns, showing off a mood both scenic and sinful, but now things are starting to heat up. Meet 'Sherlock' and 'The Hobbit' star Martin Freeman's henpecked Lester Nygaard, along with our first speaking part for Billy Bob Thornton's Lorne Malvo in the latest round of 'Fargo' teasers!
Billy Bob Thornton
The first few teasers of FX's forthcoming 'Fargo' adaptation have done well to establish the series' vibe without relying on the prolific cast, but new blood pumps all over the latest looks. Meet Billy Bob Thornton's conman character Lorne Malvo, as well as a few poor unfortunate souls in the latest round of 'Fargo' teaser trailers!
The first round of photos from FX's limited series 'Fargo' adaptation gave us good looks at the re-imagined series' cast, but with an April 15 premiere fast approaching, it's time for some actual footage, don't cha know! The first few teasers of our new 'Fargo' in action look awfully familiar, so take a look and find out why!
Last week we got our first look look at FX's forthcoming 'Fargo' TV series, before the network revealed the Coen brothers-adapted drama's April premiere date at the TCA press tour, though at last the star-studded true crime drama series has a cast photo gallery worthy of its pedigree. See the stars of FX's 'Fargo' in a full set of photos from the premiere!
FX's forthcoming 'Fargo' adaptation isn't the first attempt at adapting Joel and Ethan Coen's 1996 Oscar-nominee for the small-screen, but it may be the most ambitious. The cast and crew gathered at the ongoing TCA press tour to discuss the future of the series, wherein FX revealed that we'll take our first trip into the 10-episodes series with 'Fargo''s April debut.
A short while ago gave us our first look at FX's hotly-anticipated vampire drama 'The Strain,' and so too has the day now afforded us another glimpse at FX's upcoming wares. Check out 'Sherlock' star Martin Freeman in the first official photos from FX's star-studded 'Fargo' TV series, executive produced by Joel and Ethan Cohen!
Bringing to life such famed characters as 'The Hobbit''s Bilbo Baggins and 'Sherlock''s John Watson just doesn't seem to be enough for UK star Martin Freeman. The original 'Office' star has set his sights on a leading role in FX's forthcoming 'Fargo' adaptation opposite Billy Bob Thornton, in a role that should sound awfully familiar to fans of the Coen brothers classic.
The ensemble melodrama in the face of tragedy has long been a favorite of Oscar voters. Think 'Crash,' think 'JFK.' Meaty parts for actors, real drama. 'Parkland' is the latest, which focuses on the aftermath of the assassination of John F. Kennedy, and has assembled Zac Efron, Paul Giamatti and Billy Bob Thornton (among others) to document one of America's darkest moments.
FX's forthcoming 'Fargo' TV series has remained something of a mystery to us, don't cha know, given that we'd known the 10-part limited series won't actually follow the events of the film. However the new version shakes out, we at least have a clearer picture of the series' new leading star, none other than Billy Bob Thornton!
So if Billy Bob doesn't end up in or around a wood chipper, what can we expect from FX's latest adaptation?
'The Baytown Outlaws' trailer recently hit the web, and, to us, it looks a bit like a redneck version of 'Smokin' Aces.' You've got an eclectic cast playing an assortment of bizarre, quirky killers all after the same thing, and about two million rounds of ammo are co-starring.
Oh, and Eva Longoria looking hot, and Billy Bob Thornton looking like, well, Billy Bob Thornton, and they're trying to murder one another.
