Fargo Season 2 header

Season 2 of Fargo will take an interesting turn. Instead of moving forward, the series will turn back time and be set in a post-Vietnam War era. Lou Solverson, who was played by Keith Carradine in season 1, will be played by Patrick Wilson in season 2. Having just returned from Vietnam, Solverson has been assigned to investigate a crime between a small-town gang and a major Mob syndicate.

As you can see in the trailer below, it looks like season 2 will be just as dark and twisted as season 1. Not to mention just as funny.

Evil Dead II

Actor, director, author and international geek icon Bruce Campbell has more than the upcoming Starz series Ash vs. Evil Dead on his slate of future acting projects. He just signed on to play none other than actor-turned-politician Ronald Reagan on the critically acclaimed hit FX series Fargo.

Fargo, which is based on Joel and Ethan Coen‘s Oscar-winning 1996 comic thriller of the same name, premiered early last year to rave reviews, great ratings, and went on to win three Emmy awards and two Golden Globes (one of the latter went to star Billy Bob Thornton). The second season will be a prequel to the first and take place in the late 1970s, when Reagan was mounting his first campaign to be President of the United States.

‘Fargo’ Season 2 Adds Patrick Wilson, Ted Danson, Jean Smart & more

Patrick Wilson

As far as 2014 in TV shows go, Fargo is one of the best. Because of the resounding success and acclaim the miniseries has received, FX ordered a second season. However, the upcoming season wouldn’t follow Molly and Gus Grimly solving a series of murders in their small town again; instead, it will center on a younger Lou Solverson (played by Keith Carradine in season one) returning from a tour of duty in Vietnam, and the incident that occurred in Sioux Falls, SD, which was often mentioned during the first season.

Jesse Plemons and Kirsten Dunst were the first to be cast in the new season as a married couple. Now, it has been confirmed that Patrick Wilson (Watchmen) has been cast as the younger Lou Solverson. Ted Danson, Jean Smart, Nick Offerman, Brad Garrett, Kieran Culkin, Bokeem Woodbine, Jeffrey Donovan, and Angus Sampson are all also confirmed to have roles in the new series. Hit the jump for more.

Ted Danson Says ‘Bored To Death’ Movie Is In The Works

Bored to Death

Some of the shows that HBO has had in the past ended too quickly. Deadwood, Carnivale, and Bored to Death are just to name a few, and while the first two will most likely never hit the big screen, the third could happen. That’s right Bored to Death could get the feature film treatment.

For those who don’t get HBO (including myself) they had to suffer through the wait of it appearing on DVD shelves. But if you still don’t know what Bored to Death is, the show is a modern day noir comedy set in New York. It starred Jason Schwartzman, Ted Danson, and Zach Galifianakis.

Tim and Eric Awesome Show Great Job: Season 5 DVDTim & Eric Awesome Show, Great Job!
DVD
Season Cinco
Starring Tim Heidecker, Eric Wareheim, Richard Dunn, David Liebe Hart, James Quall
Cartoon Network
Release Date: May 17, 2011

To watch Adult Swim’s Tim & Eric Awesome Show, Great Job! is to subject yourself to an experience akin to sitting in the audience of a lethal injection while dwarves in clown makeup throw individually-wrapped slices of cheese on the walls and floor-mounted speakers blast out the immortal eardrum-bleeding ditty “Tiptoe Through the Tulips” by Tiny Tim at different volumes and various revolution speeds. When it’s all over you will find that you’ve laughed, cringed, recoiled in stark horror, and sat in front of your television set wondering just what the fuck that was all about. This is a show that the late comedy writer Michael O’Donoghue, a.k.a. Saturday Night Live‘s Mr. Mike, would have found immensely entertaining. After all, what is O’Donoghue’s Mr. Mike’s Mondo Video if not a Tim & Eric prototype, only much stranger?

Deal: ‘Curb Your Enthusiasm: The Complete Seasons 1-6’ DVDs

DVDsWe’re nearing the end of Amazon’s week of HBO deals, with today’s Gold Box spotlight deal being Curb Your Enthusiasm: The Complete Seasons 1-6 on DVD for $89.99 (that’s 62% off the list price $238.98).

This sale is only for today til midnight PST while supplies last.

This deal bundles together the six individual season DVDs (meaning, it’s not a box set). If you do the math (which I typically do), you’ll that that works out to about $15 per season as opposed to the nearly $40 list price — even with Amazon’s usual discount, each season averages around $30. Therefore, this is a huge savings and definitely worth getting if you’re a fan of the series.

For those of you not familiar with this half-hour HBO series, it stars Larry David, who co-created Seinfeld and was the basis for the George Costanza character. In Curb, David plays himself, which if you thought Costanza was outrageous, you should see the “real” Larry David.

Is The World Ready For A ‘Three Men And A Baby’ Trliogy? Steve Guttenberg Thinks So…And More!

Three Men and a Baby

While on the set of his new movie, Steve Guttenberg spoke to WENN and dropped a mega-bomb on the unsuspecting world: Disney is developing a third movie in their Three Men and a Baby franchise called Three Men and a Bride. Wait, wait — it definitely gets better. Guttenberg also claims that, he Ted Danson, AND Tom Selleck are all set to reprise their roles. Oh, thank you…thank you, God.

The 1987 original movie was a hugely popular hit back in its day. It followed a trio of friends who are living the bachelor life in a sweet bachelor pad before a mysterious baby shows up at their door that supposedly belongs to one of them. Hilarity ensues when these completely unfitting fathers attempt to care for the baby and of its glorious baby habits. The film spawned a sequel entitled Three Men and a Little Lady in which the mother comes back and plans to move the kid to London.

DVDsContinuing their week of HBO deals, today’s Gold Box spotlight deal at Amazon is Curb Your Enthusiasm: The Complete Seasons 1-6 for $82.99 (down 65% from $238.98).

If you do the math (which I typically do), you’ll that that works out to less than $14 per season as opposed to the nearly $40 list price — even with Amazon’s usual discount, each season averages around $30. Therefore, this is a huge savings and definitely worth getting if you’re a fan of the series.

For those of you not familiar with this half-hour HBO series, it stars Larry David, who co-created Seinfeld and was the basis for the George Costanza character. In Curb, David plays himself, which if you thought Costanza was outrageous, you should see the “real” Larry David. Most episodes are packed with famous actors, also playing themselves, and typically, Larry David will always put his foot in his mouth and do something extremely inappropriate. It’s funny as hell, but also so cringe-inducing, as you can’t believe some of the things he does. What makes this show really stand out is the fact that the episodes are not scripted. Each episode has a storyline, but then the actors improvise their dialogue, which is what makes the situations they’re in seem all the more real.

Comedians Cheryl Hines and Jeff Garlin (Wall-E) are in character as David’s wife and best friend, respectively, while frequent reoccurring guest stars are Richard Lewis, Ted Danson, and Wanda Sykes (all as themselves).

DVD Review: Body Heat (Blu-ray)

Three-D   |

Body Heat
Blu-ray – 1981
Directed by Lawrence Kasdan
Starring Kathleen Turner, William Hurt, Richard Crenna, Ted Danson, Mickey Rourke
Warner Bros Home Entertainment
Release Date: October 7, 2008

When Body Heat opens, our victim of love is on his balcony peering through the night at a fire from far away. The fire we learn is coming from an inn where Ned, the victim of love, used to eat when he was a young boy. He tells the hooker he hired for the night that his “history is burning up out there. Someone torched it to clear the lot.” He’s miserable and stunned that this has happened. By the film’s end, that restaurant burning will be meaningless because the history that this man will lose will be comparable to a fast-spreading forest fire; he won’t be able to do anything to prevent it.

This all happens because Ned’s love tries to encompass a woman who can’t be loved. There’s no question that Matty (Kathleen Turner) can feel love, but to be loved by her in return would be asking for too much. Right away after Ned (William Hurt) catches a glimpse of her, he falls under her spell. Then-first-time director Lawrence Kasdan makes it a point of recognition when she first appears on screen, drastically singling her out of a crowd. Hookers used to keep Ned busy and satisfied with his average life, but the spell that was cast upon him by Matty ignites a flame of love, passion and a strong willingness to her that can’t be extinguished. He works as a small-time lawyer dealing with small-time issues in a small-time town of Florida, which is suffering from a treacherous heat-wave. In a matter of time he finds himself involved in a case that towers over every case he has ever handled thanks to Matty.
