It has been revealed that Ewan McGregor has been cast in the upcoming third season of FX’s Fargo in not one, but two roles!
The actor will play brothers Emmit and Ray Stussy who are officially described as:
“Emmit Stussy is the Parking Lot King of Minnesota. A handsome, self-made, real estate mogul and family man, Emmit sees himself as an American success story. His slightly younger brother, Ray Stussy, on the other hand is more of a cautionary tale. Balding, pot-bellied, Ray is the kind of guy who peaked in high school. Now a parole officer, Ray has a huge chip on his shoulder about the hand he’s been dealt, and he blames his brother, Emmit, for his misfortunes.”
Series executive producer Noah Hawley has previously revealed that the season will take place four years after the first season, in the year 2010.
“As far as I know, there is one [character returning],” FX president John Landgraf previously said at TCA. “That doesn’t mean [Hawley] might not change his mind and there might not be more.”
Fargo season 3 will shoot later this year for a 2017 premiere on FX.
