Fargo Billy Bob Thornton as the Devil?

Fargo Billy Bob Thornton as the Devil?

To paraphrase Lorne Malvo, “I have two questions and one comment.” Firstly, why pick Billy Bob Thornton to play the gleefully malevolent chap who takes on an entire town in Fargo and secondly why not someone else, like Ray Wise, who is well known for playing this type of character and finally, now that the questions have been asked, it seems the reason Thornton was picked is that the role of the devil was obviously tailor-made for the actor. And friends, if that isn’t the truth, it should be.
