IGN- Jeffrey Donovan, who spent seven seasons as the star of USA’s Burn Notice, is joining the cast of FX’s Fargo for its second season. Plus, according to The Wrap, Parks and Recreation’s Nick Offerman has been offered a role – though he’s not currently in negotiations.
Donovan will be playing a character named “Dodd.” No other details have been provided about the character. The same goes for the role Offerman is being sought for, which is “Carl.”
I gotta say, Nick Offerman was born to play a midwestern cop in a dark comedy. He has the personality, acting chops, and killer stache needed for a quirky show like Fargo. Plus, he is from Illinois and has the face of someone that has eaten more sausages and cured meats in his life than he’d care to admit. I have only seen a few episodes of Parks and Rec, but Ron Swanson steals the show every damn time. Do the right thing Nick and accept the role. It is your density.
The only person that would be a better fit for a role on Fargo is the mom from Bobby’s World. She had the perfect accent and was always freaking pregnant. And Bobby’s brother Derek had to be the inspiration for the Billy Bob character from Season 1, right? Just a diabolical asshole that wanted to watch the world burn.
Damn, that show was awesome. I immediately went down a Bobby’s World YouTube wormhole and found the old intro. Straight fire.
And you may ask, who wrote such a great theme song? There is only one answer, my friends.
