Freeman is best known for playing nice guys in The Hobbit films and on Sherlock and the U.K. version of The Office, but he has been hoping to play a much darker character for a while. When the Fargo scripted landed in his lap, the British actor finally got his wish. “I just loved it. I’ve said to my agents for ages in a kind of lighthearted way that I think I need to play a serial killer, a f—-ing rapist, drug dealer, whatever. Partly because people don’t see me like that and partly because I want to flex those muscles again. Before The Office, I was a young actor in London who casting agents … saw as kind of edgy. I would be going up for those parts that were a bit violent or a bit scuzzy.

Martin talks about wanting to play Lester Nygaard and gives some more insights as to what’s to come for his character in Fargo.

Anonymous asked:

Why does Chris Evans always grab his left boob when he laughs?

Hello, anon, and thank you for the question.

This topic has been studied by by researchers for years. There are three prevailing theories that I will relay to you now.

1. It keeps him on the ground.


You may notice in the gif above that Chris’ leg starts to rise as he laughs, possibly a precursor to his entire body undergoing a sort of lift off due to his joy. Chris then employs his upper body strength to force himself to obey the laws of gravity.

2. To check on his physique.


As you may be aware, anon, it takes a lot of hard work to maintain a superhero body. Chris is concerned that in the time he has spent sitting down, sans working out or eating, he has lost muscle mass. Understandably, he feels the need to make sure that he is still a specimen.

3. Object permanence.


Object permanence is a term applied to the understanding that an object still exists even when you cannot see it. Chris closes his eyes when he laughs, making him unable to see that he has not disappeared. By grabbing his left boob, Chris knows that he has not somehow ceased to exist.

I hope this helps.
