Odenkirk is among the latest additions to the cast of FX's limited series, which shares a title with the classic Coen brothers movie -- but not its plot. Glenn Howerton ("It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia") has also joined the cast, which also includes Billy Bob Thornton, Martin Freeman, Kate Walsh, Colin Hanks and Oliver Platt.
FX has also released a few details about the characters they and other members of the cast will play. Here's a rundown.
Thornton is Lorne Malvo, a "rootless, manipulative man" and the story's central bad guy.
Freeman is Lester Nygaard, a Minnesota insurance salesman who comes into contact with Lorne and has his life turned upside down.
Hanks is Gus Grimly, a Duluth, Minn., police officer and single father.
