WIRED Cafe At Comic-Con - Day 3Things promise to be that much funnier in FX’s Fargo, with the addition of comedic partners Key & Peele.

FX has announced that Keegan-Michael Key and Jordan Peele will appear on the upcoming series adaptation of the Coen Brothers masterpiece, playing Webb Pepper and Bill Budge, FBI partners who become obsessed with finding the sketchy Lorne Malvo (played by Billy Bob Thornton).

Other Fargo residents include Martin Freeman (Sherlock), Colin Hanks (Dexter) and Kate Walsh (Private Practice).

  • I wasn’t really sure that a Fargo TV adaption would work but when you look at that killer cast how can you not tune in? I will definitely check this out.

  • This cast is just phenomenal. I’ll be tuning in, guaranteed. Which is surprising, since I wasn’t planning to watch at all when it was first announced.

  • There’s a 30 second trailer available. It certainly has the tone of the original movie. It should be noted that the Coen Brothers are executive producing the show.

  • On a different note, I never miss Key & Peele’s TV show. They are amazingly versatile and funny as Hell. Each of them have appeared separately in a number of theatrical features, but, as far as I know, never together. Someone is missing the boat for not having cast them together as lead characters in a movie.
