The network’s adaptation of the Coen Brothers film has added comedy duo Keegan-Michael Key and Jordan Peele for a four-episode arc.
The pair, who star on Comedy Central’s “Key & Peele,” will play FBI partners Webb Pepper (Peele) and Bill Budge (Key), who, after a violent run-in with Lorne Malvo (Billy Bob Thornton), become obsessed with finding him again. Their search ultimately brings them to Bemidji, Minnesota, and into the larger circle of the show.
The show is set to debut on April 15th for a limited run of 10 episodes. They say that, but if it’s successful you can bet on more episodes being produced. I first saw the movie Fargo just last month, so it’s all still stuck in my head. That, and those accents. The movie was great but my God that was hard to put up with. Don’cha know?
