New Coen Brothers Series Fargo
Well it looks like FX has released the first trailer for their new television series entitled, “Fargo”. Its a limited series based on the Coen Brothers brilliant movie of the same name. Martin Freeman is the wonderfully flawed actor who played in the BBC’s Sherlock, not to mention his great role as the lead in the Hobbit. Martin will play the role of Lester Nygaard who is a frustrated and beaten down salesman that is lured into trouble by the one and only Billy Bob Thornton.
In addition to all the Minnesota trappings, “true” crime narrative and deadpan humor, you have a cast that also includes Colin Hanks, Bob Odenkirk, Kate Walsh, Adam Goldberg and Oliver Platt, with the Coens on board as executive producers. Pencil the series permier on your calendar for April 15th. I am generally not a TV fan – but as with Orphan Black this may very well turn my head TV’s direction again.
