Fargo’s impressive season 2 ensemble cast has just added another notable name: EW has exclusively learned that actor-director Adam Arkin has signed on to play a mob boss in the series.
Arkin’s character is Hamish Broker. He’s officially described as a “mid-level manager in the Kansas City crime syndicate” (but is likely the highest-ranking member of the crime organization that we’ll actually see).
Arkin has also committed to directing the next installment’s penultimate episode and its season finale, i.e. episodes 9 and 10.
The 74th annual Peabody Awards entertainment winners have been announced, celebrating a host of relatively new but beloved television comedies and dramas.
Among the Peabody Award winners are two FX dramas, Fargo and The Americans. Two SundanceTV programs were also recognized for their achievements, as Rectify and The Honorable Woman were also named as winners.
Oh, you want new details on Fargo’s second season? You betcha, we got ‘em!
During TCA’s winter press tour, FX CEO John Langraf revealed that Ronald Reagan will figure into the second season of the network’s hit anthology series.
Fargo won two Golden Globes early on during Sunday night’s show, winning Best TV Miniseries or Movie while Billy Bob Thornton took home the award for Best Actor in a TV Miniseries or Movie.
Can Fargo do it again?
Hulu announced its plans to exclusively stream most of FX and FXX’s successful new shows from 2014 on Dec. 18, but one show was conspicuously absent—Fargo.
Though thanks to a new deal, you betcha the critically acclaimed show is coming to the streaming service next year.
Good news: Hulu will enable its premium subscribers to catch one of the underappreciated gems of 2014—You’re the Worst.
Fargo is going back in time to 1979 for season two, and EW has a first-look at a page from the season premiere script.
The corrupt cop. The principled drug pusher. The avenging serial killer. The vengeful peacekeeper. The romantic vampire. The heartless doctor. Television has been rotten with ironic or immoral protagonists for most of the new century, though the drama they’ve produced has often been golden.
Allison Tolman will check into The Mindy Project this fall, EW has confirmed.
The Emmy-nominated Fargo star will guest-star on the Fox comedy for two episodes as a romance novelist who ends up on a bad blind date with Adam Pally’s Peter. The news was first reported by TV Guide Magazine.
