Fargo is one of my favorite movies ever. I love every scene. And I'm cautiously optimistic too.

FunkOut: Martin Freeman is a horrible unloveable person?

He's apparently "one of the nicest people in the world" or something, but doesn't put up with bullshiat. I don't think many top actors leap to the defence of lowly circuit-grind interviewers they're going to see for all of four minutes when their producer is berating them for fidgeting.

What he does have is a very dry, black sense of humour.  Some people interpret that as dickery, or deliberately (I think) interpret him as being serious when he says stuff like "I've always wanted to be a dictator" or that he only watches his own films because everyone else sucks.

American interviewers appear to be quite taken aback because he doesn't just mouth the stupid platitudes they're used to actors spewing.

/As the internet says, he's made of "kittens and rage"

B.L.Z. Bub: T.rex: Confabulat: Fargo is one of my favorite movies ever. I love every scene. And I'm cautiously optimistic too.

I think its a 'perfect' film.  Only a few films get that designation from me.

A movie that's not about anything other than "tee hee hee, those funny-talking people in flyover country!" gets a "perfect" vote from you? I'll bet you also enjoy minstrel shows.

If that's all you got out of Fargo, I weep for your movie collection.

I read this as Morgan Freeman, and am now leaving disappointed.

A Fargo TV show?  It's like they're trying to sell us a clear coat we don't need.

Why mess with perfection? Fargo has to be one of the most re-watchable movies ever. Did anyone ask Stan Grossman first?

Huh.  I wonder if he'll pull off the accent.

I'm cautiously optimistic about this, because it seems to have a good cast: Freeman, Billy Bob Thornton, Glenn Howerton (Dennis from "It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia") , Bob Odenkirk, among others.  And the Coen Bros are involved, though I'm not sure to what degree (they're listed as executive producers).  So we'll see.  Yah, could be a good one.
