Through all of the all-too-brief ups and all-too-many downs, she has been there for/with him.

This past Monday, I had the good fortune to take part in a conference call Q&A with Hendrix about the show and her character.

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.
