Bob Odenkirk, Oliver Platt Among Other People Joining 'Fargo'
The Fargo series is continuing to impressively rationalize its existence with the addition of some solid new cast members. FX has announced that now Bob Odenkirk, Oliver Platt, Adam Goldberg, and others will be joining the likes of Martin Freeman, Billy Bob Thornton, and Colin Hanks in their serialized tale of unlikely Minnesotan crime. Odenkirk will play officer Bill Olson, a deputy in the U.S.'s curling capital, Bemidji, home of the famous Paul Bunyan and Babe the Blue Ox statues. Kate Walsh will play Gina Hess, a former stripper and mother of teenaged twin boys, and Glenn Howerton will play personal trainer Don Chumph. Goldberg will star alongside There Will Be Blood's Russell Harvard as respective Fargo Crime Syndicate members Mr. Numbers and Mr. Wrench. And if that doesn't sound promising enough, Platt will play "Stavros Milos, the Supermarket King of Minnesota." Since Odenkirk on a television show generally proves pretty favorable, there is a character called Mr. Wrench, and Oliver Platt as a Greek grocery magnate sounds great, you are encouraged to at least give this a shot. At this point, how can you not?
