One of – if not the – most anticipated shows of this upcoming season has got to be FX’s Fargo, a 10-episode limited series that the Coen Brothers will executive produce. While precious few details have been disclosed regarding how closely the plot will follow the 1996 movie of the same name, we do know that it will feature one helluva cast: Billy Bob Thornton, Martin Freeman, Bob Odenkirk, Kate Walsh, Adam Goldberg, Oliver Platt, Glenn Howerton (aka Dennis from It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia), Jordan Peele and Keegan-Michael Key, amongst others (I refuse to give Colin Hanks a higher billing than Bob Odenkirk).
To get your 1987 Oldsmobile fired up, FX has released ten teaser-trailers. Let’s take a look at them all and see if we can figure out what’s going on:
Oh my, something tells me Martin Freeman isn’t washing Hobbit clothes in there.
Apparently this movie was shot around Calgary, not North Dakota. The last time I was in Calgary it was -4C (or 24.8 Fahrenheit) and snowing hail on September 1st, so yeah, good location choice.
Man, how long has it been since Billy Bob Thornton has been in something worth seeing? Damn if I didn’t just realize I missed the old coot. How much do you wanna bet he supplied his own knife for that scene?
Oh, so that’s what happened to Angelina Jolie’s brother.
Ten bucks and the award for Creepiest Uproxxer for whomever can identify what kind of bones those are.
And that is why Cross-Country skiing is an Olympic sport.
This is how the rest of the world pictures how Americans shop, by the way. Can you really buy all those things in a hardware store in North Dakota? Jesus.
I didn’t catch who the other actor was, but Adam Goldberg must be excited to finally play a character besides “Nervous Jew Neighbor”. Legit ice fishing shack though.
Back-to-back dumping bodies trailers. Whoo boy, there’s gonna be a big body count. And here I thought Kurt Sutter wasn’t involved.
So they just left Fox 29 Reporter Steve Keeley there? That’s cold even for the Fox Network.
OBVIOUSLY this is a call-back to the Breaking Bad finale. What isn’t, amirite?
So there you go. What do you think? From what I can tell there’s gonna be murder, snow and Billy Bob Thornton. Sounds like a good time to me.
Fargo premieres April 15th on FX.
