More casting news for Coen brothers' Fargo adaptation
The Coen brothers adapt Fargo for TV
Announcements have already been made that Billy Bob Thornton, Oliver Platt, Colin Hanks, andSherlock
's Martin Freeman have been cast in various roles on the series. However, news has recently been released that Kate Walsh (Grey's Anatomy, Private Practice
), John Close, and Joey King (The Conjuring
) are set to join the project as well. Walsh will play a trophy wife with twins, Close will play Freeman's brother, and King will play Hanks's daughter.
The series is set for a limited run on FX, and will consist of a 10-episode arc. While there's no word yet on specific details of the program, it's probably safe to assume that there will be crime solving with a decidedly Minnesota/Dakota flavor.
Other FX programs -- and it's a really random list -- includes American Horror Story, It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia, Archer, Sons of Anarchy, and Louie.
