Fargo-The Television Show
It’s hard to imagine creating a television show called “Fargo” without a pregnant police chief named Marge. But that’s exactly what the Coen brothers are doing with the new television show set to air on F/X in the spring of 2014.
The good news is that Billy Bob Thornton is set to star in the show. Somehow, he seems a perfect fit. Billy will play Lorne Malvo, a shifty character who meets a small-town insurance salesman and, according to a press release, “sets him on a path of destruction.”
This is a 10 part show that will actually shoot in Canada. I’m guessing that folks in Fargo, North Dakota and all of Minnesota will get the brunt of the accent jokes though.
I’ll still be watching. You betcha!
