Fargo Season 3: Scoot McNairy, Jim Gaffigan, Four Others Added to Cast

at .

Fargo Season 3, the installment of which will take place in 2010, centers on twins Emmit, the Parking lot king of Minnesota and Ray Stussy, a a pot-bellied parole officer with a chip on his shoulder who blames his lot on life on his more successful brother, is growing.

Both characters are played by Ewan McGregor.

Today a lot more people were added to McGregor's sandbox to make his role even juicier.

Scoot McNairy

Their sibling rivalry leads to a twisted path that begins with petty theft but soon leads to murder, mobsters and cut-throat competitive bridge.

Carrie Coon stars as “Gloria Burgle,” the steady chief of the local police department. A newly divorced mother, Gloria is trying to understand the new world around her, where people connect more intimately with their phones than with the people around them.

Mary Elizabeth Winstead stars as Ray’s girlfriend, “Nikki Swango,” a crafty and alluring recent parolee with a passion for competitive bridge.

Daniel Thewlis

David Thewlis (Harry Potter films, Wonder Woman) joins the cast as “V.M. Vargas,” a mysterious loner and true capitalist who delivers Emmit the bad news that the Parking Lot King of Minnesota has just become partners with his employers, whose business interests lay outside the law.

Michael Stuhlbarg (Boardwalk Empire) will play “Sy Feltz,” Emmit’s right hand man and consigliere.

Jim Gaffigan

Jim Gaffigan (The Bleeder) will play “Donny Mashman,” Gloria’s deputy at the local police department.

Rounding out the cast are Scoot McNairy (Halt & Catch Fire, 12 Years a Slave) as “Maurice LeFay,” a stoner with a criminal past.

Shea Whigham as Meeker County Chief of Police “Moe Dammick.”

Karan Soni (Blunt Talk, Deadpool) as scientist “Dr. Homer Gilruth.”

This is coming together, right? It's too bad there won't be groovy clothes for them to suit up in, but nothing from 2010 really stands out.

What do you think of this storyline and the casting so far? I don't know about you, but I'm in. These are some of my favorites, and I have no doubt they'll no only put on an exceptional installment, but will be bringing in awards nominations, as well!
