Lester Nygaard (Martin Freeman)
Known for: The Office (BBC), Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy, The Hobbit Trilogy, Sherlock
Lester is an insurance salesman who’s down on his luck. Henpecked by his wife, and harassed by a local bully, his life is changed when a mysterious stranger comes to town.
“My character’s great; there are similarities between him and William H Macy’s character [from the 1996 film]. Billy Bob Thornton’s in it too, and his character teaches mine to take control in ways that aren’t always saintly.” (x)
Sherlock Holmes in a drug den! How’s that gonna look?
He could be the making of my brother– or make him worse than ever.
FOUND YOU, MOTHERFUCKER.
For the record, Martin got angry at me for having Benedict as my phone wallpaper. “You motherfucker, you have Ben as your phone background.” WHAT A SWEETHEART, we completely took him by surprise and he ended up chatting for a good 15 minutes about life, school and Fargo.
I told him I cosplay John Watson and when he pulled me in for a picture, he said endearingly “The two Johns.”

Hey, what happened to my chair?
The point, governor.
You know I don’t joke about my work.

No…no, put me back. No!
