The original Fargo movie came out in 1996 and was written by the Coen Brothers.  Writer Noah Hawley has come up with an amazing way to keep the theme, violence, and humor that the original movie contained without duplicating it exactly for FX Network.

The main character is played by Billy Bob Thornton as Lorne Malvo.  The plot begins when he meets Lester Nygaard, who is played by Martin Freeman.  He is a character from the small Minnesota town of Bemidji.

After Lester does some things out of character, he falls on the radar of cops Molly Solverson, played by Allison Tolman, from Bemidji and Gus Grimly, played by Colin Hanks, from Duluth.

The 10 episode mini-series has a definite ending after the 10th episode.  If the show were to continue, the plot and the cast would need to change.  The show premieres tonight, April 15th.
