This is a true story. The events depicted took place in Minnesota in 1979. At the request of the survivors, the names have been changed. Out of respect for the dead, the rest has been told exactly as it occurred.

So begins the new season of Fargo. If that opening sounds familiar, that’s because a variation of it also appears at the start of each episode of the first season. And at the start of the 1996 Coen brothers’ film this series is based on.

Danson and Wilson play father and son-in-law but they have a connection that goes beyond Fargo. They are both proud Carnegie Mellon alumni, and share a bond over the Pennsylvania university. It is that, combined with the fact that Wilson and Danson are, ahem, beyond their days of going out for late nights with the cast, which has seen a fast friendship form.

“It’s very funny because there are several people that are – and I’m not by any means old, nor am I saying that I’m old, nor am I saying that Ted’s old – but there are several people in their 20s and 30s that like to go out and have fun, whereas he and I, we’ve got wives and kids and things like that,” says Wilson. “I enjoy having a nice dinner and then I’d like to go to bed. He’s a big foodie too, so we went out to dinner a lot.”

Wilson’s name normally appears on the credits for the silver screen, not the small (you may recognise him from films such as Watchmen, or Insidious), but he is enjoying his stint on this distinguished series. “Everybody gets a moment in this thing. Every character has some character-defining moment. That is a hard thing to do because there’s a lot of mouths to feed on this show,” he says. “Sometimes you’ll get these little moments in tiny character-driven movies, you know, it’s hard to find those in studio movies anymore, where you feel ‘man I love this guy I’ve got every facet to play here’, and we’ve all had that.”
