The anthology series' production schedule forces the 'Olympians' singer to cancel a string of dates at the end of his North America tour for latest album 'My Finest Work Yet'.

AceShowbiz - Singer/songwriter Andrew Bird has confirmed he'll be part of the new season of "Fargo", opposite Chris Rock.

A character named Thurman Smutney has been written specifically for Bird to portray in the Emmy Award-winning limited series, based on the beloved Coen Brothers movie of the same name.
