Two Men Talking Trailer: Fargo Season Two!

fargo

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.

Donald Glover’s FX Pilot Atlanta Casts Leads, Begins Production!

Donald Glover

Donald Glover’s FX pilot, Atlanta, begins production this month after having cast its leads.

The series stars Glover – who wrote the pilot – as Earnest ‘Earn Marks, who once left Atlanta but returned, dreams gone, to work an unglamorous job to get by. When his cousin Alfred becomes the city’s new top rapper, he sees a chance to get back in the game by becoming Alfred’s manager.

Brian Tyree Henry will play Alfred Miles; Lakeith Lee Stanfield will play Darius – Alfred’s musical collaborator and right-hand man, and Zazie Beetz will play the pragmatic Van – whose relationship with Earn is complicated because of their daughter.

The pilot is being directed by Hiro Murai – who is best known for directing videos for Glover’s Childish Gambino: Sober, Chet Faker: Gold and Earl Sweatshirt: Chum.

For further details, follow the jump.

Sex&Drugs&Rock&Roll Finds Fertile Ground In Rock & Roll Hedonism!

In the ‘90s there was a rock band called The Heathens. Led by Johnny Rock, they were legendary but the day their first album dropped, they broke up.  Now, twenty-five years later, they have a chance to get it together and take another shot at the big time, but with one big difference – Rock is relegated to songwriting and the band is being led by the daughter he never knew he had.

Sex&Drugs&Rock&Roll (FX, Thursdays, 10/9C) is a full throttle exploration of the rock & roll lifestyle – then and now. It’s also funny and hell and surprisingly poignant. It has the potential to be the best thing Denis Leary has ever done – and I’m including The Ref and Rescue Me in that assessment.
