At this point, it's hard to find an actor who's NOT in Avengers: Infinity War, Marvel's superhero mash-up that features every single hero from its 10-year run of hit films. Carrie Coon, the Emmy-nominated actress from Fargo and The Leftovers, recently announced on Twitter she would be providing the voice for one of big bad Thanos' key allies: Proxima Midnight.
Proxima Midnight is a member of Thanos' deadly Black Order.
It was as if every Twitter user's dreams had come true…

Even people who weren't huge Avengers fans were excited about the casting.
