After announcing the inclusions of Billy Bob Thornton, Colin Hanks, and Martin Freeman, the producers of FX’s Fargo miniseries have added a slew of recognizable names, including (deep breath) Glenn Howerton, Oliver Platt, Bob Odenkirk, Kate Walsh, and Adam Goldberg.
No shortage of personalities there. Of course, the finite nature of the show has afforded the producers and casting directors the opportunity to recruit working TV stars who wouldn’t have been able to sign on for a more open-ended run. Odenkirk has Birthday Boys and his Breaking Bad Saul spinoff, Howerton has always Sunny, and though I haven’t checked, I’m guessing Kate Walsh is knee deep in season 71 of Grey’s Anatomy, and season 7 of Private Practice. Just kidding. Those two shows are done.
Enough, FX. We’ll watch your show, already.
