The third season of “Fargo” just got a double dose sexy. According to a report from EW, Ewan McGregor has been cast in the upcoming season in TWO roles. According to series executive producer Noah Hawley, season 3 will take place four years after the first season, in the year 2010.
McGregor 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.”
Hawley has also revealed that another character from the first season would be returning in the third season but it has not been revealed who that may be.
“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 begin production later this year and will premiere on FX in 2017.
