When one thinks of classic films that are be ripe for television adaptations, Fargo doesn't immediately come to mind. The creative minds over at FX seem to think differently, though, as they're bringing the Coen Brothers' 1996 movie to the small screen this week with Martin Freeman (The Hobbit, Sherlock) and Billy Bob Thornton leading the way.

New York City played host to the series premiere last week and our friends from We Got This Covered were on the red carpet covering the event. They spoke with Freeman and Thornton about the show, as well as a few other special guests, including Danny DeVito and his amazingly candid thoughts on The Americans' star Keri Russell.

Check out the video above. Fargo premieres tonight at 10 p.m. EST on FX.
