Bad Santa actor Billy Bob Thornton isn’t quite as far as the North Pole, but he’s certainly hip-deep in snow, and undeniably up to no good.
Thornton scrapes an ice-covered windshield in the teaser trailer for Fargo, the upcoming FX anthology series based on the Coen Brothers’ classic Oscar-nominated film. He doesn’t do much else in the teaser, but it’s right in line with the tone and look of the 1996 original — more than enough of a tease until the show’s April 15 premiere.
But if you’re hungry for further Fargo fun times, there’s this bit of news: Keegan-Michael Key and Jordan Peele, of Comedy Central’s Key and Peele, have signed on for the final four episodes of the season. They join an all-star cast that includes Thornton, Martin Freeman, Bob Odenkirk and Oliver Platt.
