Billy Bob Thornton Reveals The Show He’d Love To DoBy: Amanda Crum - July 30, 2014
Billy Bob Thornton has made quite an impression on Fargo fans this season, but as much fun as he had playing the villain, he says he won’t be coming back for the next incarnation of the show.
“It was such a thrill to do the show. I have nothing to complain about. Hopefully, another one that good will come along,” he said.
The show, which is based on Joel and Ethan Coen’s now-classic film of the same name, has garnered 18 Emmy nominations and won over fans of the original movie, something that wasn’t a given when writers and producers began the journey.
“We knew if we were ever going to make this, it had to hold its own against the movie. It took a lot of courage to do it,” said Eric Schrier of FX.
As for Billy Bob, the show might go on without him, but it’s doubtful he’ll have to try too hard to land another television role if he wants one. In fact, he says maybe he can pick up a part on one of the most popular shows running right now.
“There’s so much good stuff on TV. Maybe I can play what’s his name? Hodor on Games of Thrones, the guy who only says, ‘Hodor.’ Maybe I could be his cousin or something, his long lost cousin.”
