“I had to have some very blue latex put on my nipples, and then they cast a resoundingly lifelike pair of nipples, which they then pierced and placed over my own nipples, and we shot said nipples,” he revealed. “The crew doesn’t get enough credit, but there was a dedicated nippleologist.”

Season 5 of Fargo premieres tonight on FX at 10/9c. Next-day streaming is available on Hulu.
