FX Releases Trailer for Episode 2 of 'Fosse/Verdon'

If you are a theater/dance aficionado, you should REALLY be watching FX's Fosse/Verdon. The masterful take on the legendary partnership of choreographer, director, artist Bob Fosse and his ultimate muse Gwen Verdon (who FINALLY gets her due credit in this series) is simply wonderful.

Oscar winner Sam Rockwell plays Fosse, and by the first scene, we were completely sold on this casting. He's got the smooth and the cheek, backed up by presence and talent. He's joined by 4-time Oscar nominee Michelle Williams as Gwen, who brings the strength and heart of a woman who's worth is never fully realized despite her constantly saving the situation. Also? HER. LEGS.
