COMEDIANS KEY AND PEELE JOIN THE CAST OF FX'S "FARGO"

Duo Will Portray FBI Agents in Four-Episode Arc 10-Episode Limited Series Debuts April 15 on FX

Los Angeles, CA - February 26, 2014 - Comedians Keegan-Michael Key and Jordan Peele have joined the cast of the highly-anticipated Fargo, which will debut April 15 on FX. The comedy duo will guest star in an arc that will span the final four episodes of the 10-episode limited series.

Key and Peele, stars of Comedy Central's hit sketch comedy show Key & Peele, will play FBI partners Webb Pepper (Peele) and Bill Budge (Key), who, after a violent run-in with Lorne Malvo (Billy Bob Thornton), become obsessed with finding him again. Their search ultimately brings them to Bemidji, Minnesota, and into the larger circle of the show.

Fargo, the 10-part limited drama series from Writer/Executive Producer Noah Hawley, and Executive Producers Warren Littlefield, Joel & Ethan Coen, and Geyer Kosinski, is an original adaptation of the Academy Award(R)-winning feature film of the same title by the Coen brothers. Fargo features an all-new "true crime" story and follows a new case and new characters, all entrenched in the trademark humor, murder and "Minnesota nice" that made the film an enduring classic.

Oscar(R) winner Billy Bob Thornton stars as "Lorne Malvo," a rootless, manipulative man who meets and forever changes the life of small town insurance salesman "Lester Nygaard," played by BAFTA Award(R) winner and Emmy(R)-nominated Martin Freeman. Colin Hanks plays Duluth Police Deputy "Gus Grimly," a single dad who must choose between his own personal safety and his duty as a policeman when he comes face-to-face with a killer. Allison Tolman also stars as "Molly Solverson," an ambitious Bemidji deputy. Other stars include Bob Odenkirk, Oliver Platt, Adam Goldberg, Kate Walsh, Glenn Howerton, and Keith Carradine. Fargo is produced by MGM Television and FX Productions. MGM is distributing the show worldwide outside of US and Canada.
