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.

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.

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.
