Was one Fargo sneak peek not enough for you? Well, prepare for all the murder, McGregor and Minnesota you can handle, as the first full “Installment 3” trailer takes us into the world of competitive bridge-playing. Yes, you read that correctly.
Slowly, but surely, Fargo Season 3 is shoveling itself out from the snow. We finally saw first photos of the star-studded cast, and now those clever teasers have given way to actual footage of “Installment 3,” and the “unfathomable pinheadery” of a first official promo.
Early looks at Fargo Season 3 gave us a glimpse of both Ewan McGregor’s dual role and Carrie Coon’s Chief Burgle, and the full cast is finally coming out to play, See Mary Elizabeth Winstead, David Thewlis and more in the first official photos from our third tale of Minnesota murder and mayhem!
It’s been 21 years since Mark Renton (Ewan McGregor) decided to choose life. The young addict ran off with a bag full of drug money, screwed over his best friends, and kissed his junkie lifestyle goodbye at the end of Danny Boyle’s Trainspotting. In today’s sequel and reboot-obsessed studio system, it only makes sense to catch up with the Trainspotting gang in the present day and see how maturity has (or hasn’t) changed them. But just as any reunion among age-old friends will revolve entirely around the past, T2 Trainspotting is stuck reliving the glory days.
Having stayed in the snow all 2017, Fargo finally thawed out Season 3's first look at new characters played by Carrie Coon, Ewan McGregor and Mary Elizabeth Winstead, yet something was missing. Meet the other, significantly more handsome Stussy brother, as Ewan McGregor’s double role officially comes to light.
The third season of FX’s Fargo played understandably coy with its first teasers, highlighting the normal Minnesota murder and mayhem above any cast. Now, the latest spot gives a first look at a very balding Ewan McGregor, along with co-leads Mary Elizabeth Winstead and Leftovers breakout Carrie Coon.
If you’ve seen Danny Boyle’s Trainspotting, you know that the Scottish accents of the main characters can be so thick that it’s sometimes hard to understand what they’re saying. But did you know that their accents were so thick initially that Boyle actually re-recorded the first 20 minutes of Trainspotting’s dialogue so that American audiences would be able to understand them without subtitles? We’re not entirely sure he was successful. That’s just one of the facts featured in the newest episode of You Think You Know Movies!
Winter is finally beginning to thaw (it lasted a good few weeks), and with it, FX is pulling Fargo out of the snow, and into an April premiere. Season 3 has officially set a date for spring, taking us all back to 2010 with a star-studded cast and dueling Ewan McGregors.
It’s been eleven years since the first Trainspotting gave us an instant classic, and enough time has passed for Renton, Spud, Simon, and Begbie to learn that their lives as constantly drug-addled youths were unsustainable. In the meantime, Begbie has done some time in prison, Renton and Spud have gotten into system-cleansing athletic routines, and Simon has a very special business venture in the works.
Raise your hand if you get bored and try out different accents. This is a habit I picked up as a kid that continues to this day. After watching the first season of Justified, for example, the rural Kentucky accent wormed its way so deeply into my brain that I had a hard time turning it off. As a result, one of my favorite videos of 2016 was this Wired piece where a dialogue coach weighed in on 32 different performances. It really highlights the amount of detail that goes into every single sentence an actor delivers.
