March 25, 2014

Colin Hanks is the latest to be cast in the FX reboot of the Coen Brothers' 1996 quirky crime comedy Fargo, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Hanks -- who spent one season on the Showtime drama Dexter and has also appeared in Happy Endings, NCIS and Mad Men -- will play Gus Grimly, a police deputy and single father who must choose between his own personal safety and his duty as a policeman when he comes face-to-face with a killer, THR reports.

Previously confirmed actors set to star in Fargo include Billy Bob Thornton, who will reprise Steve Buscemi's role of a manipulative man who crosses paths with a small-town insurance salesman (originally portrayed by William H. Macy) to be played by Sherlock star Martin Freeman.
