Colin Hanks, the son of Tom Hanks who isn't an embarrassing rapper, will be joining Martin Freeman and Billy Bob Thornton in the Coen brothers' TV adaptation of Fargo, a 10-episode series that will share a tone and setting with the 1996 film, but not the same story or characters. Hanks will play one of those new additions, Deputy Gus Grimly, who has to balance his priorities between being a single dad and tracking down a killer—which essentially makes him this Fargo's Marge Gunderson. You'll just have to watch to see whether Thornton's con man is the killer in question, whether Hanks will interrogate Martin Freeman's sad sack insurance salesman Lester Nygaard, or who will end up in the wood chipper.
