One of the coolest-sounding elements of Fargo Season 3 is that actor Ewan McGregor will play two characters. Today, FX released the first teaser for the third season, showing off one of the characters, Ray Stussy, a parole officer.
With makeup on, he looks basically unrecognizable alongside Mary Elizabeth Winstead’s character, a recent parolee named Nikki Swango. Here’s the video (via EW):
McGregor’s other character is Emmit Stussy, the “Parking Lot King of Minnesota.” According to the season’s official description, Ray has lived in the shadow of his brother his whole life. Something bad is going to happen, as what begins as sibling rivalry escalates to murder, according to an official description for Season 3 posted by Deadline.
Other new cast members for Fargo Season 3 include David Thewlis (Harry Potter series), Michael Stuhlbarg (A Serious Man), Carrie Coon (Gone Girl), and comedian Jim Gaffigan.
Production on Fargo Season 3 took place in Calgary. The show was created by Noah Hawley (Bones, Legion); Joel and Ethan Coen, the directors of Fargo the movie, are executive producers.
Season 3 premieres on April 19.
