Watch Billy Bob Thornton in a Fargo Teaser


FX's Fargo miniseries, starring Martin Freeman, Kate Walsh, Bob Odenkirk, Oliver Platt, Colin Hanks, and Billy Bob Thornton, launches in April. The network has released the first teaser footage for the show. (The series is set in the same spiritual universe as the film, but the plots and characters don't overlap.) Based even on this tiny sliver of footage, it seems the TV version has effectively embraced the movie's tone and aesthetic: weird hairdos, snow, bone-deep human despair. My kingdom for a stronger windshield wiper.
