'Fargo's' Allison Tolman talks Molly and Gus, post whiteout

Can a spider really lay eggs in someone's neck? 'Fargo's' Allison Tolman answers that -- and more!

Burgeoning relationships can survive certain hardships, but the good folks behind the FX miniseries "Fargo" threw a doozy of a wrench into the bond between the sweet-natured, smart deputy sheriff Molly (Allison Tolman) and hapless police officer Gus (Colin Hanks).

Where do they go from here? And what might they learn from watching "The Andy Griffith Show"?

Tolman stopped by the Times' studio recently to answer these questions and talk about the fantastic opportunity that "Fargo" gave her fledgling acting career.

"They have a really sweet chemistry that I feel is a little unusual to see on screen," Tolman says of the relationship between Molly and Gus. "People are really rooting for them. Episode 3 is really the first time that we meet, and the Internet like, lost its mind."

Tolman knows this because she's sort of obsessed with the way fans have been reacting to the show, going on social media sites after episodes air to check out the reaction. She shared this as well as the reasons why "Fargo" co-star Bob Odenkirk is a good person to have on your side when you're spending six months on location (in this case, Calgary) and her favorite scene (so far) from the show.
