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.
At long last, Fargo Season 3 is finally starting to thaw out of that Minnesota cold. Not only do we have an impressive cast list, but also a spring premiere window, as cast and crew discuss the third year’s notably modern setting. Plus, what “kiss with the past” can we look forward to?
Slow and steady, Fargo Season 3 has been assembling a murderer’s row of talent for its cast. Now, as production gears up for a January 2017 start, FX confirms the full roster of names headed into the cold, including Coen brothers favorite Michael Stuhlbarg, Shea Whigham and more.
It’s difficult to say when FX might finally thaw out Fargo for some Season 3 footage, but the way this cast is going, they’d better break out the heaters. Latest to join the next chapter of Minnesota murder and mayhem is none other than Harry Potter favorite David Thewlis, albeit presumably not as a werewolf. If only!
It could be some time yet before FX’s Fargo digs any Season 3 footage out of the snow, but darn it all if this cast doesn’t feel like a spring breeze. The latest uncannily apt name to practice their “Minnesota Nice” is comedian Jim Gaffigan, setting a strong role opposite Carrie Coon with the Fargo police.
Each and every Fargo Season 3 addition has been something to get excited over, and that trend shows no signs of stopping. Following the landmark addition of Mary Elizabeth Winstead, latest to sign on for Minnesota murder is Batman v. Superman star Scoot McNairy, but as whom?
FX’s Fargo may well give us a heart attack, if the excitement of every Season 3 star continues its upward trend. Were dual Ewan McGregors and Carrie Coon not enough to bring you back to Minnesota murder and mayhem, let us welcome Mary Elizabeth Winstead as Nikki Swango. NIKKI SWANGO.
Gee, isn't it nice to not have to wake up at 5:30 A.M. for the 2016 Emmy nominations? Either way, the big announcement is finally here, as presented by black-ish star Anthony Anderson and Gilmore Girls returnee Lauren Graham, so let’s find out what we're all angry about/celebrating this year at the Emmys!
Lest you think Carrie Coon’s TV tenure might end with The Leftovers Season 3, the critical favorite is officially moving to Fargo. FX has tapped Coon for a leading role alongside Ewan McGregor in the 2017 season, and a familiar-sounding role at that.
The first season of FX’s Fargo established the series as an entity independent from the film, without necessarily promising a sequel. Along came Season 2 to push Fargo closer to an anthology model, but according to creator Noah Hawley, if Season 3 doesn’t end up the final Fargo chapter, they may follow Louis C.K.’s practice of delaying new seasons until a worthy idea surfaces.
