"What about Fargo though?!"

The brilliant sketch comedy team of Key and Peele, perhaps best known for their love of all things Liam Neesons and Bruce Willie, are sticking together for a different and decidedly darker comedy series, FX's "Fargo". We just brought you the teaser for the show, which premieres in April, but clearly work is still ongoing on the Joel and Ethan Coen-produced adaptation of the beloved 1996 cinema classic.

According to Entertainment Weekly, (Keegan-Michael) Key and (Jordan) Peele play FBI partners Webb Pepper (Peele) and Bill Budge (Key), who, after a violent run-in with hit-man Lorne Malvo (Billy Bob Thornton), become obsessed with finding him again.

No word on how long the two will be on the series, but they are just two more very interesting names attached to "Fargo", which also stars Thornton, Martin Freeman, Colin Hanks, Bob Odenkirk, Oliver Platt, Kate Walsh, Keith Carradine, Glenn Howerton and Adam Goldberg.

Premiering on April 15th, "Fargo" features

an all-new true crime story and follows a new case and new characters, all entrenched in the trademark humor, murder and Minnesota nice that made the film an enduring classic. Oscar winner Billy Bob Thornton stars as Lorne Malvo, a rootless, manipulative man who meets and forever changes the life of small town insurance salesman Lester Nygaard, played by BAFTA Award winner and Emmy-nominated Martin Freeman. Colin Hanks plays Duluth Police Deputy Gus Grimly, a single dad who must choose between his own personal safety and his duty as a policeman when he comes face-to-face with a killer. Allison Tolman also stars as Molly Solverson, an ambitious Bemidji deputy.

Holy shit I had no idea who the cast was, this sounds awesome. Favorite sketch would have to be "I'm retired".

Hilarious Dudes

I remember them both fondly from Mad TV. Youtube West/East Collegiate Bowl. It's a Key/Peele sketch that shows the rosters for these two college football teams, and they all have hilarious names like "Dijinklage Margoone," "Duvoin Shower-Handel," and "Hingle McCringleberry." So, SO hilarious.
