DARLING NIKKI

Fargo’s anti-heroine Nikki Swango (Mary Elizabeth Winstead) might be the savviest con-artist the series has ever known. The bridge-playing loose cannon is (almost) always one step ahead of everyone else – and as loyal as she is unpredictable. And that inevitably means a ton of trouble for Emmit Stussy (Ewan McGregor). VIP Fan Auctions is offering fans of Fargo an opportunity to own several of Nikki’s screen-worn costumes, including her Bebe jacket and skirt, earrings and red lace shirt from the season premiere (click here for photos and more information). Also available is the purple IRO jacket, pants, shirt and earrings she wears in the penultimate episode “Aporia” (click here). The site also has Nikki’s burgundy sweatsuit and Dynomite shirt from “The Law of Inevitability” (click here) and her Guess faux fur coat (click here) for those cold Fargo nights. Also available is her killer combo of camouflage pants, MadeWell jacket and sweater (pictured above) from the season finale (click here). Don’t miss that chance to own a television history worn by one of TV’s most complicated women – check out all of the available Fargo auctions today!

 

FARGO’S INFAMOUS ART

Sibling rivalry can be brutal, especially in the case of Emmit and Ray Stussy (both played by Ewan McGregor) in Fargo. Their animosity stems from, of all things, a valuable stamp handed down from their father, which Emmit talked Ray into trading it to him years ago. When Ray and his girlfriend, Nikki Swango (played by Mary Elizabeth Winstead), plot to steal the stamp from Emmit’s mansion, it leads to yet another embarrassment for Ray – the stamp has been replaced with a framed drawing of a donkey. Nikki responds to the switcheroo by defacing the artwork by writing “Who’s the ass now?” in her own blood (see above). VIP Fan Auctions is now offering the infamous artwork – complete with graffiti – to the Fargo fan delightfully twisted enough to hang it in his or her own home. Click here for more information and photos, and get in on the bidding for this infamous piece of Fargo set dressing today!

 

DRIVE HOME THE FARGO CORVETTE

Ray Stussy’s (Ewan McGregor) red Corvette is a focal point of third season of FX’s Fargo – after all, it was the 1977 sports car the Ray traded his father’s stamp collection to get, a move that would prove to be a lopsided deal in favor of brother Emmit (also McGregor). It would also lead to a brutal sibling rivalry. Fans of Fargo don’t have to leverage their most valuable possession to get behind the wheel of Ray’s Corvette – VIP Fan Auctions is offering the actual car used in the series: a 1977 red Chevrolet Corvette hardtop with a 350ci/180 hp engine with 48,146 miles on the odometer. Click here for more detailed information about the car, and get in on the bidding. Whoever wins the Corvette will have to make arrangements to get it from Calgary, Alberta, Canada – a small price to pay for a vintage American sports car featured in one of television’s best shows. Road trip!

 

PARKING LOT KING OF MINNESOTA

When Noah Hawley decided to bring the quintessential black comedy Fargo to the small screen, it didn’t take long to show that he was expanding the Fargo universe in a way that only complemented the brilliant and beloved Coen Brothers film. With the third triumphant season of FX’s Fargo complete – in which Ewan McGregor took on the dual role of rival brothers Emmit and Ray Stussy, VIP Fan Auctions is offering distinct props and wardrobe items from the series to fans. Currently available is the tuxedo (pictured above, right) worn by Ewan McGregor in the third-season premiere as Emmit “The Parking Lot King of Minnesota” Stussy.

Fargo Season 3 Can’t Get Here Soon Enough

Fargo Season 3 preview

A new inside look at Fargo season three has been released. The video introduces an in depth look at the story line and Ewan McGregor’s characters, a pair of feuding brothers. Like the film and every season so far, season three starts with regular people making bad decisions which lead to more bad decisions, that turns their life upside down and creates madness. Season three doesn’t seem to change from this basic formula, but knowing creator Noah Crawley there will be some curveballs along the way.

In this new first look video released by FX, we get our clearest glimpse of the storyline and not-so-loving brotherly relationship. In the clip, it explained Ray and Emmit had a falling out because Ray felt Emmit cheated him out of his fortune, and now Ray wants what’s his so he can use the money to marry his bridge-champion parolee sweetheart Nikki. We find out that Emmit “hoodwinked” Ray into giving up a valuable stamp collection and now Ray wants the last remaining returned to him, but Emmit of course does not want to give this up. Emmit then decides to devise a plan to get the stamp (as we can imagine, they are not talking about politely asking him to hand over the item).

There is also a murder, “one of those shoulda coulda woulda been somewhere else if he could murders,” which brings Carrie Coon’s Gloria Burgle character into the story for what is described as “a bit of a wild goose chase.”

Michael Stuhlbarg sums it all up at the end with a line that might as well be the whole series tagline “as you can imagine, things go wrong.” Fargo season three kicks off on FX beginning April 19th.

 

The Fargo Season 3 Teaser is Here

Ewan McGregor Fargo

Fargo is finally almost here, the third season will be premiering April 19, and from the looks of the recently released teaser, season three will be just as ridiculous and amazing as the last two seasons. The 15 second teaser begins with what seems to be a quiet neighborhood with a giant inflatable Santa Claus towering over the roofs of the houses. All is calm, but if Fargo has taught us anything, it’s that nothing is as it seems and comedy and tragedy is just around the corner. Right then, Santa begins to deflate as we here a shot ring out.

Fargo season three will stars Ewan McGregor as two brothers – one is a estate mogul and self-declared Parking Lot King of Minnesota while the second brother is a former cool kid turned parole officer with a chip on his shoulder. Like past seasons, events will transpire that will lead the two into some serious trouble.

The combination of the cast and plot has me very excited once again for what should be another excellent season of Fargo. Are you excited for the upcoming season?

HERE COMES THE SHERIFF

When a television legend finds a great role in an amazing show, the result is Hollywood magic. In the case of Ted Danson as Hank Larsson, the sheriff of Rock County, Minn., the result was instant Fargo magic. As the WWII vet and wise “cowboy poet” grandfather to Fargo’s first season’s fan favorite Molly Solverson, Danson told Variety that after he binge-watched watched the first season, he thought, “Dear lord, this is brilliant, this is on another level. Please let me be in it.” Now VIP Fan Auctions is offering Fargo fans the opportunity to own the sheriff’s uniform that Danson wore on-screen during the second season, including his sheriff’s hat, coat, gloves and boots. Don’t let this opportunity slip away into the cold, dark Fargo winter – click here for photos and more information, and bid today!

 

Fargo’s Jesse Plemons Stars in ‘Other People’ at Sundance

otherPeople

Season 2 of Fargo ended just over a month ago and I already miss it. The good news is we can see more of our favorite butcher, Ed Blumquist (Jesse Plemons). Jesse Plemons will be staring in a new comedy called Other People. His costars are Molly Shannon, Bradley Whitford and Maude Apatow. They seem like a happy family in The Hollywood Reporter’s exclusive first look at the clan. Other People made it’s world premiere last week at the Sundance Film Festival.

The comedy, from husband and wife producers Adam Scott and Naomi Scott (The Overnight), follows Plemons as a struggling comedy writer who returns to Sacramento to care for his dying mother (Shannon). He tried to convince everyone and himself that he is doing okay, but really he is feeling out of place when living with his conservative family in his childhood home.

The cast also includes June Squibb, Madisen Beaty, John Early, Retta and Zach Woods. Chris Kelly, a supervising writer at Saturday Night Live and consulting producer on Broad City who also wrote the film, makes his feature directorial debut with the title.

The Park Pictures and Gettin’ Rad Productions title also includes Sam Bisbee as a producer, and Lance Acord, Jackie Kelman Bisbee, Cathleen Ihasz, Nicole Ihasz, David Ryan, Hunter Ryan, Richard J. Bosner and Stephanie Apt as executive producers.

ABOUT FARGO (FROM FX)

The all new “true crime” case in Fargo’s latest chapter takes you back to 1979 in Sioux Falls, South Dakota and Luverne, Minnesota. “Lou Solverson” (Patrick Wilson), a young State Police Officer recently back from Vietnam, investigates a case involving a local crime gang, a major mob syndicate and a small town beautician “Peggy Blumquist” (Kirsten Dunst) along with her husband “Ed” (Jesse Plemons), the local butcher’s assistant. Helping Lou piece things together is his father-in-law, “Sheriff Hank Larsson” (Ted Danson). The investigation will lead them to a colorful cast of characters that includes “Karl Weathers” (Nick Offerman), the town lawyer of Luverne, Minnesota. A Korean War vet, Karl is a flowery drunk blessed with the gift of gab and the eloquence of a true con artist. Three-time Emmy winner Brad Garrett will play “Joe Bulo,” the front man for the northern expansion of a Kansas City crime syndicate. The new face of corporate crime, Joe’s bringing a Walmart mentality to small town America. His number two is “Mike Milligan” (Bokeem Woodbine). Part enforcer, part detective, Mike is always smiling – but the joke is usually on you. Bulo and his crew have their sights set on the Gerhardt crime family in Fargo, currently led by matriarch “Floyd Gerhardt” (Jean Smart). With her husband at death’s door, Floyd takes over the family business, frustrating her eldest son, “Dodd Gerhardt” (Jeffrey Donovan). An impatient hothead with a cruel streak to match his ambitions, Dodd can’t wait for both his parents to die so he can take over and expand their business from kingdom to empire. “Bear Gerhardt” (Angus Sampson) is the middle son, an intimidatingly large man who, although inarticulate, is the most decent of his clan. “Rye Gerhardt” (Kieran Culkin), the youngest of the Gerhardt clan, views himself as a big shot, but in reality he’s just a small dog with a loud bark.

Emmy Award winning Executive Producers Noah Hawley (showrunner/writer), Joel & Ethan Coen, Warren Littlefield and John Cameron all return for the second installment. Fargo is produced by MGM Television and FX Productions, with MGM Television serving as the lead studio.
