The upcoming FX television adaptation of Fargo — based on the 1996 hit film of the same name — is packed with stars, who all appear in the show’s new trailer.
The cable network has been teasing the series for weeks now with several 30-second spots, but this trailer offers a full minute of famous faces and Minnesotan accents. The show centers on a drifter, played by Billy Bob Thornton, who arrives in Fargo and sinisterly manipulates the town’s people, including Sherlock‘s Martin Freeman, Breaking Bad‘s Bob Odenkirk and Dexter‘s Colin Hanks. Also appearing: Kate Walsh, Oliver Platt, Adam Goldberg, Glenn Howerton, Jordan Peele and Keegan-Michael Key.
Ethan and Joel Coen, who produced the Academy Award-winning film, are executive producing the dark comedy, which premieres April 15.
