If you read that headline as “Morgan Freeman…” you’re not alone. Morgan Freeman will not be starring in the Fargo TV series, airing on FX. Lest you think that MARTIN Freeman will be portraying the William H. Macy character from the film, he will not, as this won’t be an adaptation of the film as much as it will be another story that takes place in the Fargo universe.
That’s right. I just referred to the North Dakota/Minnesota backdrop of Fargo as a “universe.”
Billy Bob Thornton has already been announced as a star as well, leading us to believe we will find some very interesting accents, indeed in this show.
