    Ewan McGregor to Lead FARGO Season 3 in Dual Roles

    [​IMG]

    Fargo season three has found its leading man. Ewan McGregor has been cast in the starring role of FX’s Emmy-winning anthology drama – two starring roles, in fact.

    Because the Star Wars and Trainspotting star isn’t just playing one part in the series. He’s been cast as two brothers, Emmit and Ray Stussy, who are at the center of the story (and no, they’re not twins).

    Here’s the official description of his characters, which marks the first details of any kind about the show’s mysterious third edition:

    “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.”

    Previously, Fargo showrunner Noah Hawley said the new season would be set in 2010, a few years after the events in season 1. The writer-producer also hinted that one other character from a previous season might return, though nobody else has yet been cast. Fargo season 3 will begin production later this year and will air sometime in 2017.

    For McGregor, this will mark his first TV series regular role. He’s also is starring in and making his directorial debut in the upcoming film American Pastoral and is currently in production on T2: Trainspotting 2.

    Fargo season one was amazing. Season two was one of the best television series in 2015. Can't wait for season 3.

    Let's hope there are no UFOs in this one.

    If you haven't seen the first two seasons yet, I highly recommend you go check it out.

    Update: July 11, 2016

    Carrie Coon Cast as the Female Lead in FARGO Season 3


    [​IMG]

    Fargo has found its next leading lady. The Leftovers' Carrie Coon is set to star in season three of the FX anthology opposite Ewan McGregor, The Hollywood Reporter has confirmed.

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

    As previously announced, McGregor will take on the dual roles of brothers Emmit and Ray Stussy in what will be his first TV series regular role.

    Production on the third installment of Fargo is set to begin later this year for a 2017 debut on FX.

    Season three of Fargo has been rumored to take place in 2010, following the events of the breakout drama's freshman season. It's unclear how or if it will tie into the events from the first run.

    "None of the main characters from our first year will be back for our third year," Hawley told THR in December.

    For Coon, the role comes after her breakout turn on The Leftovers, which earned her a Critics Choice award for best actress in a drama series in 2015, and a nomination for the same award the year prior. Her other credits include Gone Girl and the forthcoming thriller The Keeping Hours.

    I hope S3 is as good as S2. I think the show has been solid overall but S1 had moments where it dragged. S2 was much closer to perfection.

    McGregor is going to knock this thing out of the park. Coon is okay. She'll be suitable.

    I can't wait. The first two seasons were both really well done. One of my all time favorite shows.

    I loved season 1 to death, & I absolutely ****in' hated season 2.

    Hopes are not high for this, but I'll give it a chance.

    I loved season 2, but can see how someone who loved the first season could hate the second, they were very different.

    Really? I actually preferred Season 1 to Season 2.

    Season 2 started off so strong, but the weird alien angle at the end had me scratching my head. Plus, I'm pretty sure nobody was getting a face transplant in the 70s.

    Still a great season of TV though.

    P.S: Bokeem Woodbine (Mike MIlligan) should have been nominated for an Emmy. He was such a great character.

    I've got very high expectations after the first two seasons. It will be hard to beat the cast of season 2, so many great performances.
