35 Times You've Seen the Actors from Fargo Before

Updated October 12, 2018 16.4k views35 items

From unknowns to seasoned pros, the Fargo TV series actors come from all parts. Newbie Allison Tolman came out of comedy and brings a sparkling intelligence to Molly Solverson. Seasoned vets such as Ted Danson, Jean Smart, and Billy Bob Thornton add wonderful layers to the storylines. Adam Goldberg and Russell Harvard as Mr. Numbers and Mr. Wrench are efficient, but not nearly as much as Zahn McClarnon as the killing-machine Hanzee Dent.
Let’s look at the Fargo actors in other roles and find where you’ve seen them before. Recognize Michael Hogan from Battlestar Galactica? How about Elizabeth Marvel from House of Cards and True Grit? What else has Glenn Howerton done besides Always Sunny? And remember when Kirsten Dunst played a little girl vampire and hung out with Tom Cruise and Brad Pitt? The Fargo TV show characters are a who’s who of range, depth, and delightful surprises.

    There’s a reason Dunst killed it on Fargo; she’s been at this acting game since the mid-‘90s. Member that time she was child-bloodsucker Claudia in Interview with the Vampire alongside Brad Pitt and Tom Cruise?
