Fargo's Emmy-winning first season was a brilliant surprise: Billy Bob Thornton gave a comeback performance as villain Lorne Malvo, Allison Tolman gave a breakout one as policewoman Molly Solverson and the series as a whole fell only a few suspenseful shivers shy of HBO's first season of True Detective.
We know now, of course, that True Detective in its second season daringly created new characters in a new mystery in a new place, and yet the only thing memorable about it was someone with a falcon mask and maybe Colin Farrell looking clammy and in need of an antacid.
But Fargo's new season, which brings in a whole new cast and year (1979), looks very strong. Here's what makes it tick.

They did it!
Pamela Anderson, Bill Rancic, Christy Turlington, Patrick Wilson, Joe Bastianich and Paul Scheer all completed the grueling 26.2-mile ING New York City Marathon on Sunday – in the name of charitable causes.
From MasterChef's Bastianich celebrating with a glass of wine (and well wishes from Tom Colicchio) to Anderson icing down her entire body (and posting a photo to prove it) and to supportive spouses cheering along the race route (like Giuliana Rancic) here's how Hollywood commemorated making it to the finish line:

Fans recognize Patrick Wilson from his CBS drama A Gifted Man, but his friends know him as a die-hard Van Halen fan – with a family cover band to boot.
"You're defined by your older brothers or sisters' music," explains the actor, 38, who was turned on to the band decades ago by his elder brothers Paul and Mark. "It's always been this hilarious passion."
Driven by their love of music and all things Van Halen (Wilson says that his surgical hat in A Gifted Man is made from a Van Halen t-shirt!), the brothers formed their own cover band – dubbed, appropriately, Van Wilson – a few years ago, and play gigs whenever they can.

As an actress, Rachel McAdams has done the morning news shows more than once. Now, she gets a chance to produce one – in her upcoming film with Harrison Ford, Diane Keaton and Patrick Wilson.
In Morning Glory, whose first trailer is just out, McAdams makes a desperate attempt to revive a morning show's flagging fortunes by convincing Ford, a veteran newsman, to come out of retirement and join the on-air team. But Ford is a loose cannon, to put it mildly, and things are going to get worse before they get better.
The movie is due in theaters in November.
