Fargo ? Meet The Cast


This first teaser from the series’ new season offered short glimpses of the new cast of characters, including other supporting roles like Jeffrey Donovan, Bokeem Woodbine and Bred Garrett, posted by Screenrant.com.

Fargo ? OK Then


Another teaser is introducing a new Midwestern character and his penchant for using the phrase ?OK then.? This hints of Fargo Season 2?s sexism era in the ?70s, a plot line revealed by a synopsis released earlier:

?The all new ?true crime? case of the series? new chapter travels back to 1979 in Sioux Falls, South Dakota and Luverne, Minnesota, where a young State Police Officer ?Lou Solverson? (Wilson), recently back from Vietnam, investigates a case involving a local crime gang and a major Mob syndicate. Helping him piece things together is his father-in-law, ?Sheriff Hank Larsson? (Danson). The investigation will lead them to a colorful cast of characters that includes ?Karl Weathers? (Nick Offerman), the town lawyer of Luverne, Minnesota. A Korean War vet, Karl is a flowery drunk blessed with the gift of gab and the eloquence of a true con artist. Three-time Emmy winner Brad Garrett will play ?Joe Bulo,? the front man for the northern expansion of a Kansas City crime syndicate.

The new face of corporate crime, Joe?s bringing a Walmart mentality to small town America. His number two is ?Mike Milligan? (Bokeem Woodbine). Part enforcer, part detective, Mike is always smiling ? but the joke is usually on you. Bulo and his crew have their sights set on the Gerhardt crime family in Fargo, currently led by matriarch ?Floyd Gerhardt? (Smart). With her husband at death?s door, Floyd takes over the family business, frustrating her eldest son, ?Dodd Gerhardt? (Jeffrey Donovan). An impatient hothead with a cruel streak to match his ambitions, Dodd can?t wait for both his parents to die so he can take over and expand their business from kingdom to empire. ?Bear Gerhardt? (Angus Sampson) is the middle son, an intimidatingly large man who, although inarticulate, is the most decent of his clan. ?Rye Gerhardt? (Kieran Culkin), the youngest of the Gerhardt clan, views himself as a big shot, but in reality he?s just a small dog who barks big.?

The new trailers however, doesn?t really dig into anything deep in terms of plot, but are more intended to evoke the goofy/dry tone of the show?s humor, shared by Adam Chitwood of Collider. According to FX, the new cast of characters to show on the series?also includes Patrick Wilson (Insidious), Ted Danson (Cheers), and Dean Smart (Frasier).

Fargo?s Season 2 is a good cast that you should definitely watch out for. The show is inspired by the 1996 film ?Fargo? written and directed by the Joel and Ethan Coen, more commonly known as the Coen brothers, who also serves as producers in the series. Season 2 is expected to premiere in October 2015.
