Allison Tolman is doing an incredible job on FX's Fargo.
But it was more than just her acting talent that got her a guest starring role on Archer!
She got the producers drunk!
Now Tolman will be playing fan favorite character Pam's unseen sister Edie.
Archer's executive producer Matt Thompson said:
"We always talked about these terrible things that Edie did and we never had any intention of showing you Edie. Until we got drunk with Allison Tolman at an FX party and listened to her great Wisconsin accent that she did on Fargo and kind of convinced us to do it."
Ha! They were all drunk and she did her Fargo accent until they broke down and gave her the role!

Thompson said that the episode with Tolman is "one of our best that we've done." It's apparently a Fargo-themed episode.
That's an amazing idea! He continued:
"The thing that was really nice too is the people at Fargo were really cool to us because there's a song at the end of the episode, and we usually don't have that much money to have nice music and they let us use the Fargo TV theme song to heighten the emotion of the last scene."
That's fantastic! We can't wait to see it!
You won't have to wait long to watch it either… the sixth season of Archer premieres at 10pm tonight on FX!!
