Actor stars inside TV adaptation of Coen Brothers’ Oscar winner alongside Martin Freeman
FX has introduced a slew of mor­bid plus eccen­tric trail­ers for Fargo, their upcom­ing TV adap­ta­tion of the Coen Broth­ers’ 1996 film of the same name. All types of evil­do­ings abound, set to the many mun­dane sound­tracks ever: a body gets left from a auto, a guy sprints over a frozen tun­dra plus whilst there’s no wood­chop­per, 2 crim­i­nals create wise employ from a chain­saw to receive a body down an ice fish­ing hole.
The show stars Billy Bob Thorn­ton because a shift­less fig­ure (à la Steve Busce­mi’s Carl Showal­ter) whom meets a small-town insur­ance sales­men (much like William H. Macy’s Jerry Lun­de­gaard) played by Sher­lock’s Mar­tin Free­man. Free­man pops up inside 1 clip with a bro­ken nose when sit­ting, hor­ri­fied, about a rum­bling dryer. In the clip above, Thorn­ton speeds down a snow-covered high­way say­ing, “There’s noth­ing incorrect with liv­ing by the rules, because lengthy because you’re will­ing to die by them,” because some­one beats found on the within his torso.
Needless to say it’s not all griz­zly, below-zero mur­ders, with all the teasers giv­ing a wise sense of the show’s humor: In 1 clip, some­one stocks up about, er, sup­plies like duct tape, the best survival knife, a crow­bar plus chips, when inside anoth­er, Thorn­ton sits at a diner booth willing to feast about a gigan­tic steak before whip­ping out his own, more effec­tive knife (this one’s set to a instru­men­tal muzak cover of Daniel Powter’s “Bad Day,” no less).
Joel plus Ethan Coen, that helmed the movie, are serv­ing because Fargo’s exec­u­tive pro­duc­ers, whilst the show has been writ­ten by Noah Haw­ley. Fargo furthermore stars Colin Hanks because a Duluth authorities deputy plus Alli­son Tol­man because an ambi­tious deputy from near­by Bemid­ji, Min­neso­ta.
