Before you get your midwestern knickers in a bunch over fears that FX is going to spit out a sh*tty bastardization of the Coen Brothers Fargo for the teevee,worry not. It’s exec produced by the Coens, so it will have their stamp of approval, and when it comes to FX, they don’t make bad dramas. They just don’t. Fargo is a 10-part mini-series that will follow an all-new ‘true crime’ story with a new case and characters all seeped in the humor, murder and “Minnesota nice.”

It sounds great. Here is the completed cast:

Billy Bob Thornton: Lorne Malvo, a rootless, manipulative man who meets a small town insurance salesman and sets him on a path of destruction


Martin Freeman: Lester Nygaard, a small-town insurance salesman henpecked by his wife,


Colin Hanks: Duluth Police Deputy Gus Grimly, a single dad who must choose between his own personal safety and his duty as a policeman when he comes face-to-face with a killer


Kate Walsh: Gina, a trophy wife-type and reluctant mother of twin sons.


Joey King: Greta, the daughter of Hanks’ police deputy.


Josh Close: Ron, the brother of Freeman’s small-town insurance salesman Lester Nygaard.


Oliver Platt (No character description)
