FX has released four new teasers for its upcoming 10-episode limited series, Fargo, which is set to premiere on April 15th. This is sure to be a fantastic series, and it has an incredible cast of actors to bring these characters to life.
An original adaptation of the Academy Award-winning feature film, "Fargo" features an all-new "true crime" story and follows a new case and new characters, all entrenched in the trademark humor, murder and "Minnesota nice" that made the film an enduring classic.
Oscar winner Billy Bob Thornton stars as Lorne Malvo, a rootless, manipulative man who meets and forever changes the life of small town insurance salesman Lester Nygaard, played by BAFTA Award winner and Emmy-nominated Martin Freeman. Colin Hanks plays Duluth Police Deputy Gus Grimly, a single dad who must choose between his own personal safety and his duty as a policeman when he comes face-to-face with a killer. »

With all the hoopla about the big Sunday night movie award show, many of you might not have gotten the list of the big winners from Saturday night’s big movie awards show. I’m talking about the 34th Annual Razzie Awards. They were started in 1980 by John Wilson to celebrate the movie year’s worst achievements. The hour-long ceremony was held this past Saturday evening down the street from the site of Sunday’s big show. Without further ado, here’s the nominees and winners for the 2013 film year:
Worst Remake, Rip-off, Or Sequel:
- Jim Batts
Awards season comes to a head tonight as the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences presents the winners of the Academy Awards, and - as is traditional - yesterday saw the very worst of cinematic achievement celebrated with the 34th annual Golden Raspberry Awards.
While Adam Sandler dominated the nominations (as usual) with Grown Ups 2, the Razzie favourite went away empty handed for a change as the ensemble comedy Movie 43 and M. Night Shyamalan sci-fi After Earth picked up three gongs apiece, with Movie 43 claiming Worst Picture, Worst Director(s) and Worst Screenplay and Jaden Smith and Will Smith named Worst Actor, Worst Supporting Actor and Worst Screen Combo.

Come Oscar season and for a change there are indeed a handful of standout movies that are rightfully vying for the coveted Best Picture gold statuette. Gravity is a thrill ride in the best tradition of science fiction movies, American Hustle is an entertaining con-romp based on a true story; Wolf of Wall Street, while not Scorsese’s best, is a dynamic tale of greed and hedonism, Her, an intriguing and ironic love story and 12 Years a Slave is a compelling and poetic study of a black man’s harrowing experience as a slave.
However the one movie that beats them all as a pure cinematic experience is Nebraska, a stark, minimalistic, beautifully photographed look at fading small town America. Directed by Alexander Payne (Sideways, The Descendants) with an eye for detail »

We already know that a "Breaking Bad" spin-off, called "Better Call Saul," is in the works.

While promoting his new film "Need For Speed," Paul told the AP that he's had "serious talks" with co-creator Vince Gilligan about returning as Jesse Pinkman in the spin-off, centered on Bob Odenkirk's sleazy lawyer Saul Goodman.
"Anything Vince is involved with, I'm there," Paul adds. "I owe him my entire career. And the idea of jumping into the skin of Jesse Pinkman again in his lighter days -- because it's all a prequel -- it would be fun."

Los Angeles (AP) — If Aaron Paul gets his way, "Breaking Bad" fans can expect to see Jesse Pinkman calling on Saul Goodman — and perhaps calling him some names — in the spinoff series centered on a sleazy lawyer. Paul says he'd had "serious talks" with "Better Call Saul" co-creator Vince Gilligan about returning to his character, a low-level drug dealer before he linked up with Bryan Cranston's Walter White to produce methamphetamine. "Anything Vince is involved with, I'm there," Paul said in an interview while promoting the upcoming "Need For Speed" movie. "I owe him my entire career. And the idea of jumping into the skin of Jesse Pinkman again in his lighter days — because it's all a prequel — it would be fun." The Emmy-winning "Breaking Bad" ended last year after five seasons. Gilligan told reporters last month that he'd be asking its actors to make cameos in "Better Call Saul, »

(Cbr) "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. »

Yeah, Bitch! Last year in September, we saw our very last episode of Breaking Bad. Well, that gets a .Boo, bitch., but then we found out that a spin-off was in the works centered on the character of Saul Goodman with the title based on his slogan, Better Call Saul. The hope was that we would see series regulars from BrBa. So far aside from obviously Bob Odenkirk, only one has signed on, the great Jonathan Banks aka Mike Ehrmantraut. Now it looks like Jesse Pinkman might join in on the »

One of the most intriguing new series to air on cable this year will be Fargo, FX’s adaptation of the Oscar-winning film from Joel and Ethan Coen. Although that bleak mystery-comedy is a modern classic, the Coens (who are executive producers for the series) have helped to assemble a pretty great TV ensemble, including Martin Freeman, Bob Odenkirk, Kate Walsh, Oliver Platt, Allison Tolman, Colin Hanks and Keith Carradine.
Leading the cast is Billy Bob Thornton in the role of Lorne Malvo, a manipulative hitman who becomes caught up in a crime in that small North Dakota town. FX popped a brief 30-second teaser for Fargo online today, which shows little more than Malvo scraping off some snow from his car’s front windshield. Yes, the character is so badass that he has to scrape the snow off his car instead of using his wipers.

In case you weren't already amused enough by the eclectic cast for FX's "Fargo," which features Billy Bob Thornton, Martin Freeman, Bob Odenkirk, Keith Carradine, Adam Goldberg, Glenn Howerton, Kate Walsh and more, the network announced on Wednesday (February 26) that Key & Peele are joining the cast. Comedy Central stars Keegan-Michael Key and Jordan Peele will join "Fargo" for a four-episode arc that lets them work together, playing a pair of FBI agents. FX says that FBI partners Webb Pepper (Peele) and Bill Budge (Key) will have a violent run-in with Thornton's Lorne Malvo and will become obsessed with finding him again, bringing them into the show's main orbit in Bemidji, Minnesota. And yes, those character names certainly sound like candidates to appear in the next East/West College Bowl. And hopefully every time Petter mentions Budge's name, it'll sound a lot like "Fudge."
