To Me He’ll Always Be Wade Gustafson


Harve Presnell died on Tuesday.

Harve was one of the great leading men in musical theatre and musical films.  But thanks to Ethan and Joel Coen,  late in his career he was cast as William H. Macy’s father-in-law,  Wade Gustafson,  in the film Fargo.

His performance was as remarkable as the film. And the scenes he did with Macy were classics.


               Well, you know Stan'll say no
               dice.  That's why you pay him.
               I'm asking you here, Wade.  This
               could work out real good for me
               and Jean and Scotty -


               Jean and Scott never have to worry
