Fargo season 3 is already delivering the goods. Ewan MCGregor has been cast in dual roles in the upcoming season, according to a report of at Deadline.
McGregor will be not one, but TWO central characters, Emmitt and Ray Stussy (a.k.a. The Stussy Brothers). We know the third season, aside from Ewan McGregor’s involvement, is supposed to be set closer to the present day than the second season. Here’s a pretty intriguing synopsis from the Deadline report:
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.
This is the first bit of casting news, but don’t expect it to be the last awesome addition to this incredible series. Fargo season 3 will be here some time in 2017.
