The third instalment of Fargo is rounding into shape with the addition of David Thewlis, Michael Stuhlbarg and Jim Gaffigan to a cast that already includes Ewan McGregor, Carrie Coon and Mary Elizabeth Winstead.
Thewlis will play loner and true capitalist V.M. Vargas; Stuhlbarg will portray the right hand man of Ewan McGregor’s Emmit Studdy, Sy Feltz, and Gaffican will be Donny Mashman – deputy to Carrie Coon’s chief of police, Gloria Burgle.
With the proliferation of television programming it seems like a good time to split my annual list of favorite shows in three. Let’s face it, most network television works within some pretty specific limitations while cable gets to ignore most of them the result being two different types of programming that probably should no longer be compared by the same criteria (other than whether they’re good enough – that will always apply). And then there’s genre – sci-fi, fantasy, horror and comic book shows – to further complicate things.
It’s been a bumper year for television on both platforms and in all genres, so bear in mind that these are my favorites – your mileage may (and probably will) differ.
Now the second brilliant season of Fargo is over, FX has produced an In Memoriam video to say farewll to the season’s fallen. If you haven’t watched the whole season, you might just want to skip this one. If you have, follow the jump.
If you haven’t, you can binge the entire season at FXNOW until February 2nd.
Fargo was one of the most unexpected successes of the 2014 season – but once it became apparent that it delivered the kind of Minnesota not-so-nice as the Coen Brothers’ film, the only question that remained was this: could series creator Noah Hawley do it again.
On Tuesday, October 12th (10/9C) we will learn the answer to that question – but the day before, we can experience the unique first season on FXM beginning at 2pm (1C). For details, follow the jump.
The first full-length trailer for Fargo has been released. Besides the return of ‘Minnesota nice’ there’s a bit of swamp in the air, or, at least, swamp rock – the music in the background as the credits begin to roll is Dr. John’s Right Place (Wrong Time) and it’s probably not a coincidence, eh?
Fargo: Season Two features another all-star cast that includes: Kirsten Dunst, Ted Danson, Jeffrey Donovan, Jean Smart, Jesse Plemons, Patrick Wilson, Kieran Culkin, Brad Garrett, and Bokeem Woodbine – and returns to FX in October. Check out the trailer after the jump.
