Yahoo! TV has unveiled a few images from the upcoming TV series, 'Fargo', which is based on the cult movie by the Coen Brothers.
Check out some images from the new TV series.
In an exclusive premiere, Yahoo! TV has unveiled a handful of stills from the new FX series, a spin-off on the Coen brothers’ 1996 film.
One of the images revealed by Yahoo! TV shows Martin Freeman, the actor best known for his portrayal of Bilbo Baggins in the Hobbit trilogy. The British actor will play the show’s protagonist, Lester Nygaard, a role loosely based on the character played by William H. Macy in the original movie.
In the TV version, this henpecked insurance salesman will meet a mysterious stranger who brings him nothing but trouble.
Freeman will be joined by Billy Bob Thornton, Colin Hanks, Kate Walsh, Oliver Platt and Bob Odenkirk in the series, which is produced by the directors of the movie version, Joel and Ethan Coen. Screenwriter Noah Hawley (Bones) will pen the series, aiming to preserve the dark humor and distinctive Midwestern atmosphere of the film while creating an entirely new plot.
FX plans to air the first 10 episodes of Fargo, filmed in Canada, from this spring. — AFP Relaxnews
