If you haven't yet watched the Fargo scene of your dreams that Billy Bob Thornton and Allison Tolman gave us, stop what you are doing and watch it now! (Just press play above.)

And if you haven't yet watched Fargo, get the heck outta here, wontcha? And go do it.

The FX miniseries is up for 18 Emmys this year, including acting nods for all four of the series' leads, including Martin Freeman, Allison Tolman, Colin Hanks, and Billy Bob Thornton. We caught up with Thornton, who is the most experienced out of the four Fargo nominees, and while he's not immune to the nerves of awards season, he has learned to be a little more laid back.

"I think when I was involved in award melee in the old days, I think I was probably more taken aback, and sort of really nervous and not quite sure of myself and that kind of thing," he told us. "These days, I think there is a part of me, even though I'm just as nervous as I was then, there's also a part of me that has more fun with it." 

While that's great and all, we're really most interested in more. We want more Fargo, please.

Unfortunately, when we chatted with Thornton, he was unable to help.

"They're kinda tight-lipped, they don't tell me much," he said, "I don't know anything about it."

Fine. But if they do come back for a season two, Lorne Malvo (spoiler alert) totally survived those many gun shot wounds and will live to kill again, right? Remember how he twitched? Is it possible he's invincible?

Not so much. "I knew from the beginning that I was only in 10 episodes and that's it for me, so I'm not gonna be in it if they did another 10 episode story."

"It is bittersweet," he said, and aww jeez, we're crying.

Watch the video above for more, and to find out if he'll be rocking those Lorne Malvo bangs at the Emmys ceremony next month.
