Joel and Ethan Coen’s classic 1996 film, Fargo, is heading to the small screen this Tuesday, courtesy of FX. Starring Martin Freeman and Billy Bob Thornton, the new series (which is not a straight remake) follows a drifter named Lorne Malvo, whose arrival in small-town Minnesota shakes up the population due to the malice that he brings with him. Throw in some dark humor, grisly violence and strong performances, and you have a show that perfectly captures the spirit of the original.
In celebration of Fargo‘s premiere this week, FX rolled out the red carpet for the cast and crew (along with some special guests) last Wednesday in New York City. Seeing as the show is one of our most anticipated new series of the year, we were thrilled when we got the invite to attend. Though there wasn’t enough time to speak with all of the talent that were there, we did get to catch up with Freeman, Thornton and a few other familiar faces.
Check out what the cast of Fargo had to say in the video below, and be sure to catch the series when it premieres this Tuesday on FX.
