FX’s ‘Fargo’: First Look at Comedy Central’s Key & Peele as FBI Agents
FX’s ‘Fargo‘ adaptation of the Oscar-winning Coen brothers film made a healthy splash in the ratings this week, in addition to registering a big hit with critics, but buzz will surely build as we approach the arrival of the snow-fallen drama’s most surprising additions to date: comedians Keegan Michael Key and Jordan Peele. Watch the stars of Comedy Central’s ‘Key & Peele‘ make their ‘Fargo’ debut in the first footage!
However brief the snippet, the trademark ‘Key & Peele’ humor is on full display in their first ‘Fargo’ appearance, bickering over high fructose corn syrup. The future ‘Police Academy’ funnymen will pop up in the last four episodes of the adapted ‘Fargo’ series as Webb Pepper and Bill Budge, FBI partners who become obsessed with finding the sketchy Lorne Malvo (Billy Bob Thornton) after a violent run-in with the man.
For those yet to tune in, FX’s ‘Fargo’ also features ‘Sherlock‘ star Martin Freeman ‘Breaking Bad”s Bob Odenkirk, Allison Tolman as Marge Gunderson-esque Deputy Molly Solverson, Colin Hanks as Duluth Police Deputy Gus Grimly, along with ‘Always Sunny‘ star Glenn Howerton as ambitious personal trainer Don Chumph, Kate Walsh as Gina Hess, a former stripper raising twin teenagers, Oliver Platt as supermarket king Stavros Milos, as well as roles for Adam Goldberg, Joey King, Peter Breitmayer, Tom Musgrave, and Josh Close.
Take a look at ‘Key & Peele”s ‘Fargo’ debut in the clip above, and tell us what you think of FX’s new Coen brothers-adapted drama so far!
