Emmy Quickie Sneak Peek: Mary Elizabeth Winstead

Mary Elizabeth Winstead didn’t have to audition for her role as the brilliant, impulsive Nikki Swango on “Fargo,” because the show’s creator, Noah Hawley, had wanted her on the acclaimed FX series for years. But not all of her collaborations have gone so smoothly. Winstead told TheWrap about an audition several years ago in which a director — one who had apparently never encountered a normal, healthy human being before — accused the North Carolina-born actress of eating too much Southern fried food.
