Odenkirk, Platt & More Join FX's "Fargo"

Bob Odenkirk ("Breaking Bad"), Glenn Howerton ("It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia"), Kate Walsh ("Private Practice") and Oliver Platt ("X-Men: First Class") have all joined the cast of FX's ten-episode limited series "Fargo".

Billy Bob Thornton, Martin Freeman and Colin Hanks lead the cast of the show inspired by the Coen brothers' 1996 film. Joey King, Peter Breitmayer, Tom Musgrave, Josh Close, Russell Harvard and Adam Goldberg also star.

Odenkirk will play Bill Olson, a police deputy with seniority over his younger, smarter and more ambitious fellow deputy Molly Solverson (Allison Tolman).

Howerton will play an ambitious personal trainer, Walsh a former stripper and mother of teenaged twin boys, and Platt plays a Minnesota supermarket chain mogul.

Filming begins in November in Calgary ahead of a Spring 2014 premiere.
