Carrie Coon joins FARGO Year 3

“The Leftovers” star Carrie Coon has been cast opposite Ewan McGregor in the third season of FX’s critically acclaimed anthology series “Fargo”.

Coon will portray Gloria Burgle, a practical woman who grabs the fire extinguisher when the bacon catches fire and everyone else panics. Gloria is the chief of the Eden Valley police, and a newly divorced mother who is struggling to understand this new world around her where people connect more intimately with their phones than the people right in front of them.

Previously announced, McGregor will play two roles — brothers Emmit and Ray Stussy. Emmit is the parking lot king of Minnesota, a handsome and successful real estate mogul. Ray is a pot-bellied, balding parole officer who peaked in high school and blames his brother for his misfortunes.

Coon, who has received rave reviews for “The Leftovers,” is currently shooting the third and final season of the HBO series, freeing up her schedule and allowing her to join “Fargo.”

“Fargo” has been a buzzy awards show since its 2014 debut, nabbing ten Emmy nominations for its first season, which starred Billy Bob Thornton, Martin Freeman, Allison Tolman and Colin Hanks. The second season, starring Kirsten Dunst, Ted Danson, Patrick Wilson and Bokeem Woodbine, was nominated for two Golden Globes and is expected to land much Emmy love this Thursday when the nominations are announced.

Production on “Fargo” season 3 is set to begin later this year. The new season will debut in 2017.
