The Horror Honeys: Honey Buzz ~ FARGO Season 2 Begins Casting

Honey Buzz ~ FARGO Season 2 Begins Casting

The 2nd Season of Fargo is beginning its casting run...and before you freak out, that they're going to ruin everything, it's OK...

Over the summer, Noah Hawley announced that the new season would be taking place in 1979 with some of the Season 1 characters returning, but as their younger selves.  The upcoming season will feature Lou Solverson (father of Molly Solverson from Season 1) as a 33-year-old veteran returning from the Vietnam War. Molly’s mother will also figure into the story. Solverson was played by Keith Carradine in Season 1 but will be recast for obvious reasons for Season 2. The same goes for Molly, who was portrayed by Allison Tolman. Molly will appear in Season 2, but she'll only be four, so whatever.

At the TCA press tour this summer, Hawley explained the choice of setting for Fargo Season 2:
That time period is interesting — post-Vietnam, post-Watergate … the best of America versus worst. That sense, I think, that this war had come home with people, and the violence and brutality of it. Lou Salverson went to Vietnam and came home, but now he’s come back and it’s here — it’s domestic.He has also said that he’ll be taking inspiration not just from the Coen Brothers’ Fargo, but also from their films Miller’s Crossing and The Man Who Wasn’t There.

Now...for the casting: Jeffrey Donovan (Burn Notice) and Rachel Keller (an unknown) are reportedly in talks to board the FX anthology series, while Nick Offerman (Parks & Recreation) has an offer out. TheWrap reports that Donovan is near a deal but that Offerman has not yet entered negotiations. Donovan will play a character named Dodd and Keller has been cast as Simone. Should Offerman sign on, he’ll play Carl. Also up for parts are Mike Bradecich and Allan Dobrescu, but descriptions of their roles were not given.

Fargo Season 2 will return to FX in the Fall of 2015...hopefully we'll hear about a definitive release date soon!
