A Calgary reporter's stops a random passerby to ask about the TV show filming nearby, and fails to recognize he's part of its cast.

Fargo

Let's stipulate to begin with that corralling passers-by to ask what they think of the TV show that's filming in your hometown is not the most glamorous of journalism assignments. Even so, this interview with a random man on the street during the shooting of "Fargo" reaches heights of cluelessness that are usually the province of the Springfield Daily Shopper ("Who are you? Where are you going?")


To be fair, Bob Odenkirk is pretty bundled up, but even so you'd the penny might drop when he tells Gil Tucker, the correspondent for Global Calgary, that he's a part of "Fargo's" cast, that his name is Bob, and he plays a deputy on the show. (Ever the pro, the future Chief Oswalt avoids spoilers.) But he presses on anyway, and Odenkirk, it must be said, is a supremely good sport, even demonstrating a bit of his rural Minnesota patois. It's a modestly painful exchange, but it could have been worse: At least he didn't mistaken Odenkirk for Laurence Fishburne.

The season finale of "Fargo" airs June 17 at 10pm on FX.
