Among all of the hearsay regarding season three of FX drama Fargo, we finally have some concrete news. Ewan McGregor will star and play two characters: brothers Emmit and Ray Stussy
Emmit Stussy is the Parking Lot King of Minnesota. A handsome, self-made, real estate mogul and family man, he sees himself as an American success story. His slightly younger brother, on the other hand, is more of a cautionary tale. Balding and pot-bellied, Ray is the kind of guy who peaked in high school. Now a parole officer, he has a huge chip on his shoulder about the hand he’s been dealt, and he blames Emmit for his misfortunes.
The Emmy award winning show is expected to be set a few years after the first season, following season two’s trip back to 1979.
Production is supposed to start later this year, with the show hitting FX in 2017.
