Teasers for FX's upcoming drama "Fargo" offer a familiar phenomenon to anyone dealing with the cold, snowy, cold winter. Yep, the polar vortex stars in all the clips promoting the adaptation of Joel and Ethan Coen's 1996 film. Here's the latest, but keep scrolling for previous ones.
"Fargo" is set to premiere 9 p.m. April 15, hopefully after the polar vortex has ended.
Dontcha just hate when this happens?
This clip mirrors a scene in the film where a man is put through a wood chipper.
The Coen brothers serve as executive producers, but the story and characters are completely different from the film. Billy Bob Thornton plays drifter Lorne Malvo in the 10-episode series. Thornton is joined by Colin Hanks, who plays police deputy Gus Grimly, and Martin Freeman (Dr. Watson in "Sherlock"), who stars as insurance agent Lester Nygaard, a character inspired by the one William H. Macy played in the movie.
Enchanted highway: Small town, tall tale.
Scrape: This April, Lorne Malvo has a few things to clear up.
