An upcoming television series that is an adaptation of the Oscar-winning 1996 Coen brothers movie "Fargo" appears to be putting the accent on funny. The New York Post reports that the FX project has added the comedy duo Key & Peele — Keegan-Michael Key and Jordan Peele — to the cast of the "Fargo" series.
The comedians, the stars of Comedy Central’s “Key & Peele,” will portray FBI agents Webb Pepper and Bill Budge, who are trying to find a drifter played by Billy Bob Thornton. The pair will appear on the show’s final four episodes.
The 10-episode series will debut April 15. It also stars Martin Freeman of “Sherlock” and Kate Walsh of “Private Practice.”
