FARGO: Patrick Wilson on Taking Liberties with Lou, the Solverson’s Family Troubles

October 12, 2015 by  

FARGO’s second installment is telling a unique story to what the first year of the show told, but there is one throughline: Lou Solverson, who will be played this season by Patrick Wilson. (An older version of Lou was portrayed by Keith Carradine in the first season.)

But because the events of this season impact who Lou was when viewers met him in season 1, Wilson explained the creative team thought it would be best for him to not completely emulate what Carradine had done.)

“I love Keith’s performance, but then in talking to [FARGO creator] Noah [Hawley], you also want to take your liberties where it’s a different Lou at this point,” Wilson said on the show’s Calgary set. “A lot of the events that happen in this season are what he refers to [in FARGO season 1], shaping, probably, who he is. So that gave me a little freedom to not sit there and feel like I had to mimic every character thing he had.”

Check out more from Wilson, including teases about the family issues Lou is dealing with in FARGO’s second season…

FARGO season 2 premieres tonight at 10 PM on FX.
