FARGO, N.D. (AP) - Residents in Fargo are ready to celebrate the premier of "Fargo'' the TV show, along with a homegrown actor who plays a part in the series.
The 90-minute episode on FX will be shown Tuesday night at the historic Fargo Theater. The Joel and Ethan Coen production stars Billy Bob Thornton, who plays the bad guy, and Martin Freeman, who plays an insurance salesman corrupted by Thornton.
North Dakota native Tom Musgrave, who plays Freeman's boss in the show, will attend the premier in Fargo and take the stage for a question-and-answer session afterward. Musgrave was born in Bottineau and grew up in Valley City.
Musgrave says he had an advantage with his North Dakota background and jokes that he was the "expert on set.''
