FX's 'Fargo' first look: See Billy Bob Thornton in action

Posted on


Billy Bob Thornton is battling the Polar Vortex in a brand-new video from FX’s Fargo, which premieres April 15.

Thornton plays drifter Lorne Malvo in the adaptation of the 1996 Coen brothers classic. While Joel and Ethan Coen are back as executive producers, the 10-episode series has a new story and new characters. In addition to Thornton’s Lorne, there’s Colin Hanks as police deputy Gus Grimly and Martin Freeman as insurance agent Lester Nygaard.

In the new clip below, Thornton’s character embarks on his daily car-window scraping, as The Ames Brothers’ “It Only Hurts for a Little While” plays on the radio. But this isn’t just about removing ice and snow. As the FX caption below the video reads: “This April, Lorne Malvo has a few things to clear up.”

Fargo premieres Tuesday, April 15, at 10 p.m. ET on FX.
