FX has released four new teasers for its upcoming 10-episode limited series, Fargo, which is set to premiere on April 15th. This is sure to be a fantastic series, and it has an incredible cast of actors to bring these characters to life.
An original adaptation of the Academy Award-winning feature film, "Fargo" features an all-new "true crime" story and follows a new case and new characters, all entrenched in the trademark humor, murder and "Minnesota nice" that made the film an enduring classic.
Oscar winner Billy Bob Thornton stars as Lorne Malvo, a rootless, manipulative man who meets and forever changes the life of small town insurance salesman Lester Nygaard, played by BAFTA Award winner and Emmy-nominated Martin Freeman. Colin Hanks plays Duluth Police Deputy Gus Grimly, a single dad who must choose between his own personal safety and his duty as a policeman when he comes face-to-face with a killer. Allison Tolman also stars as Molly Solverson, an ambitious Bemidji deputy.
Rounding out "Fargo's" colorful cast of recurring characters will be Emmy winner Bob Odenkirk as Deputy Bill Oswalt, Golden Globe and Emmy-nominated Oliver Platt as Stavros Milos, Screen Actors Guild Award winner Kate Walsh as Gina Hess, Glenn Howerton as Don Chumph, Joey King as Greta Grimly, Peter Breitmayer as Lieutenant Schmidt, Tom Musgrave as Bo Munk, Josh Close as Chazz Nygaard, Russell Harvard as Mr. Wrench and Adam Goldberg as Mr. Numbers.
I've enjoyed these fun, short teasers, and as a fan of the film I'm excited to watch this series.
