The 'Fargo' Cast Names Their Favorite Moments From the 'Fargo' Movie
Don't go looking for Marge Gunderson or Jerry Lundegaard in FX's "Fargo"; you won't find them. While the new ten-episode drama (debuting April 15) faithfully recreates the spirit and tone of the Oscar-winning Coen brothers film, it tells an entirely new story — and a good one, at that — with a fresh cast of characters.
But that doesn't mean the cast hasn't seen the movie, for Pete's sake. When we visited the Calgary set of "Fargo" last month, we asked each cast member to name their favorite scene, moment, or line of dialogue from the original film... and ma'am, they answered our question! Read on for some good vintage "Fargo" memories.
"I just loved [William H.] Macy, every time someone got closer to him: 'Hey, I need to ask you a couple questions.' And Martin [Freeman]'s doing the same thing here; there's something about that white-bread guy suddenly involved in something that's just not in their world. And just seeing the nervous energy in those guys… I think that would be it. I gotta tell you, every time Macy was confronted again and he knew somebody was sniffing around, it would just crack me up."
