Fargo - Character Descriptions

Lorne Malvo (Billy Bob Thornton):

Some might call him a drifter, others a gun for hire, others still a spirit or trickster, or devil. Lorne Malvo moves from place to place turning people’s lives upside down. Sometimes he does it for money, sometimes for fun. He has killed many people, but he is not a serial killer. He has stolen sums large and small, but he is not a thief. The fact that there is no crime he won’t commit, doesn’t mean he’s a criminal by any definition you’d understand. The truth is, he is fascinated by the search to find the weakness in everybody that he can exploit, to see what it takes to turn a civilized person into an animal.

Lester Nygaard (Martin Freeman):

As an insurance salesman, Lester is good-natured and earnest, but has spent his life slowly being brow-beaten by the world around him.

With a little inspiration from a stranger by the name of Lorne Malvo, Lester embraces a darker side of himself.
