FX has filled out the cast of its limited-run series Fargo with three more actors: Breaking Bad alum Bob Odenkirk, It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia star Glenn Howerton and The Big C actor Oliver Platt.
They join Martin Freeman, Colin Hanks, Billy Bob Thornton and recent addition Kate Walsh in the 10-episode series inspired by the Coen brothers’ acclaimed 1996 film. Allison Tolman, Joey King, Peter Breitmayer, Tom Musgrave, Josh Close, Russell Harvard and Adam Goldberg are also part of the cast.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Odenkirk will play Bill Olson, a Bemidji, Minnesota, sheriff’s deputy with seniority over his younger and more ambitious fellow deputy Molly Solverson (Tolman). Howerton’s character is Don Chumph, an ambitious personal trailer, while Platt is Stavros Milos, “the Supermarket King of Minneosta.”
Production is set to begin next month in Calgary with an eye toward a spring premiere.
