Here's What That 'Fargo' TV Show Is Looking Like

The latest run of Sherlock just premiered in the UK and hits PBS later this month, but already Martin Freeman is at work on another series the internet could potentially base its gay-fantasy fan art on. He's starring in FX's long-developing adaptation of Fargo, playing the William H. Macy of sorts in a new tale of darkly-comedic crime and midwestern accents.

From Yahoo, here's a first look at the anthology series, where you can see Freeman beside a freshly-toupéed Billy Bob Thornton. They will be joined by Colin Hanks, Bob Odenkirk, It's Always Sunny's Glenn Howerton, Allison Tolman (seen below in Marge Gunderson gear), and more. Your feelings that Fargo should not be touched by non-Coens will be joined by competing feelings that you're kind of intrigued by the cast and increasingly curious how this is going to work out.
