Top 10 lists rank among the more unusual aspects of movie and TV criticism, and as my colleagues Ryan McGee, Matt Singer, and Mike Sampson’s own 2014 favorites will attest, the end-of-year celebration format brings with it a unique mixture of...
Fargo - Page 2
FX’s ‘Fargo’ gave its first bit of official season 2 casting last week with news that Kirsten Dunst and ‘Breaking Bad’'s Jesse Plemons would play a couple at the center of the ‘70s crime drama, but already the Coen-adapted Emmy-winner is taking things one step further. Get a glimpse of their characters with a full script page from FX’s ‘Fargo’ season 2!
Quickly becoming a sought-after property by its Emmy wins, FX’s ‘Fargo’ adaptation recently put offers out to two sought-after stars, albeit without official confirmations yet. Now, Kirsten Dunst and ‘Breaking Bad’ star Jesse Plemons have become the first official additions to season 2 of the Coen-influenced serial, but as whom?
It’s been a good long while since we’ve heard anything from the front of FX’s ‘Fargo,’ last confirmed to prequelize itself in exploring the Sioux Falls case of a younger Lou Solverson, but we may yet have some friendly faces on the case. ‘Burn Notice’ star Jeffrey Donovan has reportedly been cast in a leading role, while ‘Parks and Recreation’ star Nick Offerman (and his mustache) has been approached as well.
At one point during this interview, Jeff Bridges leaned back in his chair, laughed, then broke into an impression of Jeffrey Lebowski, his character from 'The Big Lebowski' who is also famously known as The Dude. It was at this moment that I decided that the trip from New York City to San Diego for Comic-Con was worth it.
Earlier today brought the expected, if somewhat disheartening news that FX would indeed move forward with 'Fargo' season 2 in 2015, albeit with an all-new story and cast. Now, 'Fargo' producer Noah Hawley has generously stepped up to reveal a major character connection to the first season, as well as the new 1979 time period, and what other Coen brothers films we can expect as influences!
The FX network is among the last TV heavy-hitters to bring its series to the ongoing TCA press tour panels, and already brings both good news and bad. For one, FX's 'Fargo' miniseries will officially return for a second season in 2015, while Louis C.K.'s Emmy-winning 'Louie' has also been confirmed for a fifth season. So, what's the bad news?
The 2014 Emmy Nominations are in, and expectedly outraging everyone across the internet. It takes a 'True Detective' to figure out this 'American Horror Story,' but did the right nominations go to the right people? Will Tatiana Maslany ever get her due? Can dogs really write blogs? We weigh in on the upsets, upchucks and underdogs of today's TV snubs.
Don’t any of these people know what a miniseries is anymore? In today’s TV landscape there are anthology series, “event series,” reboots, and relaunches. There are shows that were meant as series, but then given endings because they’re never coming back, and series that give themselves an series finale only to be given a reprieve at the last minute a million times
After only 10 episodes, FX's 'Fargo' adaptation has come to a snow-fallen close with Tuesday's season (series?) finale "Morton's Fork." Bodies hit the ground, bullets flew and plenty of "you betcha"s abounded, but what does showrunner Noah Hawley have to say about the big ending? And what might we pick up on if FX opts for a second trip to 'Fargo' in 2015?
