Prince in Fargo?????

This may of already been talked about but.....
I was hanging at the dog park talking to some people and they
were saying that in the movie "Fargo" in one part you can see
a person running in a field (In the distance) and that person
is/was Prince???
I had never heard of this.. and I've never seen the movie?
I had thought some one said SOME of the movie was shot around
Paisley park.. but I have no idea if this is real or not?
Can any one shed some light on this?? confused
Thanks alot. smile

See the site's FAQ section 6.5

6.5 Was Prince really in the movie 'Fargo'?
Short answer: nope! It was an extra who wished to remain uncredited, and so it became bit of an in-joke at the time.

A modified version of the symbol does appear in the credits, though. Here is an excerpt from an interview with the Coen brothers in Premiere magazine, explaining it:

Premiere: A question for all the Coenheads on the Internet: What is that Prince-like symbol, the smiley face on its side, in the end credits?

Ethan Coen: That was our storyboard artist, who played the guy who drives by in the car with the red parka. He asked us if he could have that credit. We also use a lot of names of people we grew up with, scattered throughout the movie, being paged on telephones. But that's mostly because we couldn't think of names that would be appropriate.


(The film was set and shot in Minnesota, but not near Paisley Park)
ALT+PLS+RTN: Pure as a pane of ice. It's a gift.
