San Diego Comic Con week is upon us, which means new trailers and spoilers galore. FX took advantage of the attention to debut a (comparative) slew of new information for Fargo season two–including a delightfully silly shot of Bruce Campbell as Ronald Regan.
First, though, are the new trailers. “Curl Up N’ Dye” features a shell-shocked-looking Kirsten Dunst as beautician Peggy Blomquist. Peggy, Lady Macbeth-style, is washing something awfully blood-like from her hands and a child’s hair:
And, in the second, two policemen, played by Patrick Wilson and Ted Danson (recognize him?) enjoy a brief break in a quiet, snow-covered parking lot, before needing to get “back on the clock.”
Spoilers for Fargo season two have been difficult to come by, as the producers and crew are as taciturn as an Upper Midwestern farmer. We do know one new detail, though, and it’s a fun one: Evil Dead and Burn Notice legend Bruce Campbell has been added to the cast as former California governor Ronald Reagan.
The premise: It’s 1979, and Reagan travels through Sioux Falls SD on an early campaign swing just before or just after announcing his candidacy. Patrick Wilson’s Officer Lou Solverson gets assigned to Reagan’s security detail, and…something happens. We don’t know what just yet, but we do know that Lou made cryptic reference to an “incident” in Sioux Falls during Fargo‘s first season.
Here’s a shot of the mock campaign button that the Fargo producers have been handing out at Comic Con:
Campbell looks positively Romneyesque.
Fargo season two also features Breaking Bad‘s Jesse Plemons; Parks and Rec‘s Nick Offerman; Everybody Loves Raymond‘s Brad Garrett; Frasier‘s Jean Smart; and a whole confused, glorious troupe of others. (You can get a complete cast breakdown in our earlier post about Fargo‘s upcoming episodes.)
It looks to be a hilarious and convoluted story–and we don’t have long to wait to watch it unfold. Though FX has yet to announce an exact air date, all of the trailers they’ve released so far have promised a September release.
