FX's Fargo TV series is turning out to boast quite the impressive cast. In addition to the already confirmed Martin Freeman, Billy Bob Thornton, Colin Hanks, Kate Walsh, Oliver Platt, and Glenn Howerton (seriously), Vulture is reporting that Saul Goodman himself, Bob Odenkirk, will appear in the series as a senior deputy in the city of Fargo, North Dakota.
As previously reported, this adaptation of Fargo is actually going to include the Coen brothers as executive producers, so hope that the series might actually be good isn't lost—plus, the cast already sounds pretty great. Who would have thought we'd ever see Saul Goodman and Dennis Reynolds on screen together?
Though plot details are being kept quiet, the series is said to follow the same general structure that the Coen brothers' 1996 film did: That is, a regular joe kind of guy (Freeman in the series, William H. Macy in the film) being dragged into a crime scheme that is more than he bargained for. It'll differ from the film, however, when it comes to the "crime scheme"—previous reports have stated the series will include some sort of "true crime" story plot.
Production on Fargo is set to begin in November.
