Killer Casting

Dec 21, 2023

AGENT JOAQUIN is in the house! Joining Lisa to breakdown Fargo Season 5 Episode 6 “The Tender Trap” is none other than actor Nick Gomez who recurs as FBI Agent Joaquin this season and who got a front row seat up close and personal in the Jon Hamm in the Hot tub scene. Before we dive into this episode, Lisa talks about casting Nick on Criminal Minds as a Detective and the behind the scenes process. Nick then reveals how he landed Fargo and his first day on set as well as giving us his unique insights on the series.  Nick and Lisa analyze the shifting power plays in this week’s episode, the revelations and the deepening relationships between all of these incredible characters. Oh and Lisa floats the Wizard of Oz theory past Nick. Join us, subscribe and be sure to leave us a review.
