Default 'Fargo' on FX: Filming in Calgary

Starring Billy Bob Thornton, Martin Freeman, Bob Odenkirk, Colin Hanks, Kate Walsh, and some Canadians involved as well.

Shooting over the next few months in the Calgary area.

Quote:
The new TV series Fargo is being shot in and around the city, and as a result some marked police vehicles will be seen on certain streets. They have been made to look as if they are from the City of Bemidji Police and Duluth Police.

The Calgary Police Service has been made aware of the production, which is working in cooperation with the Calgary Economic Development Film Office.

They're using a lot of the local talent that they use for Hell on Wheels. My aunt works on extras casting for both. Says that Billy Bob Thornton is a very strange little man

If it's being set in Bemidji, they better find a way to have a Joel Otto cameo in the show.

Me too! Although not a household name I think he has finally reached that point where people recognize him on shows.

Mr. Show for life!

Saw Colin Hanks downtown today. Let's just say after that terrible Dexter season I was NOT starstruck.

As much as I love Bob Odenkirk for Mr Show and Breaking Bad I'll always remember him as Porno Gil in Curb your Enthusiasm.
NSFW quotes
NSFW!


The little joke about his collection of small bottles always cracks me up too.
