Fargo Previews Tease Nice People, A Trunk Phone Call, Cold Crimes And 'Buckets Of Blood' image
FX has always taken fun and different approaches to promoting their series and that includes Noah Hawley's upcoming Fargo drama. Among the latest videos to make their way online are these two teasers, which are very brief but do a pretty great job of teasing the dark humor we might expect from this series.

Fargo's First 7 Minutes Have Martin Freeman Getting Emasculated And More, Watch It Here image
The year is 2006, and household appliances that do both the washing and the drying are hitting the market and blowing people’s minds in the process. This is what makes for casual dinner conversation at the home of Lester Nygaard (Martin Freeman) and his wife Pearl (Kelly Holden Bashar), but it doesn’t take long for Pearl to flash her claws with barely cloaked jabs...

Fargo's Mysteries Await In New First Look Preview And 'Philosophy' Spot image
Based on what is arguably the Coen brothers’ most perfect film, FX’s upcoming mystery drama Fargo has quite a pair of darkly comedic shoes to fill, don’tcha know. But those shoes appear to be walking in the right direction, as the series’ marketing campaign has done a fantastic job of laying the groundwork and setting the scene, all without actually delving into where the storyline is headed. If you held my head just above a wood chipper and asked me to explain the plot, I’d likely shrug my way into tragedy.

Fargo's 'Cast' Trailer Reveals More About The Plot And Characters image
FX has revealed another trailer for Noah Hawley's Fargo and, combined with the last glimpse of the series, which focused on the "Story," we might be able to start patching together a bit more of the plot for this drama, which is more inspired by the 1996 Coen Brothers film than it is a direct remake.

Fargo's First Trailer Is Here And It's Just The Right Amount Of Dark, Funny And Weird image
Finally! After a handful of excellent teasers that told us very little about the actual plot of Fargo -- beyond dark humor, Minnesota and and murder -- we have a proper trailer for Noah Hawley's FX drama. Guess what, it's about dark humor, Minnesota and murder! Ok, there's more to it than that, including seeing Martin Freeman as Lester Nygaard, possibly breaking his own nose...

Latest Fargo Teaser Shows Martin Freeman Under Stress And Over A Washing Machine image
Each of the recently released teasers for Noah Hawley's Fargo series seems to offer some nod to the Coen Brothers' film on which this FX drama is loosely based. At face value -- somewhat literally -- I'm not sure the latest teaser does, unless anyone can link the sight o Martin Freeman atop a rumbling washer with some scene from the 1996 film.

Latest Fargo Teaser Gets A Leg Up On A Frozen Lake image
When we shared the "Roadside" teaser for Noah Hawley's FX drama Fargo, I recall requesting a wood chipper nod in an upcoming preview. The latest teaser for the drama does just that. Though there's no actual wood chipper, there is a foot, and anyone familiar with that scene from the Coen Brothers' film will get the reference...

New Fargo Teaser Drops Yet Another Body image
FX has been prepping to air the new drama Fargo for some time, now. We’ve already seen an excellent teaser trailer featuring a body barely buried in the snow, and we get a similar scene with the latest from the network. Called “Enchanted Highway,” the new teaser features one of those oddball roadside attraction.

Latest Fargo Teaser Leaves Us On The Side Of The Road image
The caption that comes with FX's latest Fargo teaser invites us to come to Fargo this April. April! As exciting as it is that the series appears to be on track to arrive this Spring, those of us in cooler climates aren't likely to be all that eager for more cold. There's also the matter of the dead body on the side of the road there... assuming that nose is attached to the face of someone not breathing.

New Fargo Clip With Billy Bob Thornton Only Scrapes The Series' Surface image
It takes a lot to convince us that a remake/reboot/reimagining of a pre-existing thing is a good idea. Original ideas in Hollywood are about as common as haystack needles these days, but sometimes — sometimes! — an idea to bring a pre-existing entity and world to the small screen pays off. And FX’s TV adaptation of the hit Coen Brothers film, Fargo looks to be just that.

Martin Freeman Looks Beat Up In Fargo First Look Photo image
We learned last fall that Sherlock star Martin Freeman was set to star in FX’s planned Fargo series. The 10-episode limited series isn’t a remake or a sequel, or even a spinoff really. From everything we’ve heard about it, it sounds more inspired-by the 1996 crime film, centering on new characters and a new story, but set in snowy Minnesota and including a similar tone of dark humor.

Colin Hanks Heads To Fargo At FX image
Over the last few years, Colin Hanks has been focusing his attention and talent on the small screen, with guest appearances and recurring roles in a number of notable series, not to mention a starring role alongside Bradley Whitford in the short-lived 2010 action comedy series The Good Guys. Whitford has since moved on to star in ABC's new comedy Trophy Wife, while it looks like Hanks is FX-bound, as he's signed on to co-star in the Fargo drama that's in the works at the cable channel.

Sherlock's Martin Freeman Signs On For FX's Fargo Series image
These days, when he isn't appearing in Edgar Wright's latest film, Martin Freeman is portraying some pretty classic literature characters, between Dr. John Watson for Sherlock on the small screen, and Bilbo Baggins for The Hobbit on the big screen. Freeman may have had his next great role, and while it's for an adaptation, it's not a literary character.
